Have you ever tried Rain Coast Albacore? It's fished out of the northwest
U.S. waters, and it's REAL good. I never buy any other kind. Sure, it's $3 a
can, but well worth it. A tuna steak is pricey, so why shouldn't good canned
tuna be, too? Makes tuna a whole new experience. There is also a tuna
imported from Spain, in glass jars, packed in olive oil, that is just
de-vine! I can't remember the brand name just now ... Espinoza?
