Tuna Guys’ Mediterranean Sandwich
However as the years passed my awareness of food quality increased and I began to read about sustainable fishing. The more I learned the less interested I became in cans of water filled pressed tuna. My tuna sandwich lunches went through a dark spell until one fateful day when we discovered theTuna Guys.
Eating tuna canned this way was a revelation to me. Big flaky chunks of sweetly flavored fish were a direct contrast to the mushy tuna sandwiches of my childhood. Even though this tuna is not cheap, I have been purchasing Tuna Guys tuna for almost ten years and believe that quality tuna is worth the cost. As they say, “Try us once and you’ll be hooked!”

4 Italian style hoagie rolls, split open and lightly toasted
1 can Tuna Guys Albacore tuna (or another premium brand)
2-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil (depending on the amount of liquid in the tuna can)
2 Tablespoons Capers
1 Roasted Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 teaspoon Chives, minced
1/4 cup Black Olives
1 medium Tomato, diced
1/4 cup Red Onion, finely diced
1/4 cup Pepperoncinis, chopped (less if you don’t want a spicy kick)
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Red Wine Vinegar
Fresh Ground Salt and Pepper
Lightly toast each hoagie roll using a toaster oven or toaster.
Empty all contents of the tuna can into a medium sized bowl. Gently break up the chunk of tuna with a fork. Add in olive oil, capers, roasted red bell peppers, chives, black olives, tomatoes, pepperoncinis, and lemon juice. Mix ingredients together until well combined. Fill each hoagie roll with the tuna mixture. Drizzle a small line of oil and vinegar along the top of the tuna in each roll. Add freshly ground salt and pepper on top to taste.
