Today, I am reviewing a new product by StarKist. You know StarKist makes Tuna, but now they offer Gourmet Selects Tuna.
What is Gourmet Selects Tuna? It is Premium Tuna that they flavor several different ways. I know Tuna is good for you; StarKist Tuna is 100% wild-caught, and Tuna helps you make a very quick meal, so I decided to try it. They have seven new varieties in their Gourmet Selects line. I received four of them to taste. I made a delicious Greek Tuna Wrap with the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic and a Tuna Melt with the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Dill. Both of these recipes were so easy and tasty!
StarKist gave me their Gourmet Selects Tuna to try; however, the opinions expressed are my own. Using these Gourmet Selects Tuna, you can whip up a FLAVORFUL meal quickly. This Tuna can be found at Wal-Mart and most grocery stores across the southeastern U.S.

The flavor of the Gourmet Selects Tuna varieties is really good. When I tasted the Tuna before making the wrap, I could definitely taste the olive oil and roasted garlic. The same went for the Olive Oil and Lemon Dill Tuna. Most of the time when I make a tuna fish sandwich, I add lots of seasonings to give the Tuna some flavor. I did add some Lemon pepper to the melt and some Greek seasoning to the wrap, but not like I would normally.
Since you will find olive oil and garlic in Greek food, I decided to make a Greek Wrap using the Marinated Tuna Fillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Roasted Garlic. I added a bit of Greek dressing, some lettuce, sliced Cucumber, Feta Cheese, and the Tuna. The wrap was really good! It was fast and a very tasty. The only thing I would change is not filling the wrap with so much food. It was difficult for me to close it.
