One of the best parts of traveling is visiting local supermarkets and discovering shelf-stable delicacies. Santa Catarina tuna, from the Portuguese archipelago called the Azores, is a perfect example.

While the first thing to catch your eye will likely be the attractive paper-wrapping on the cans, it’s the contents that impress. Hand cut into either large fillets or chunks and packed with spring water or high quality olive oil, this tuna is line-caught and minimally processed. Available in a variety of flavors, including oregano, thyme, Mediterranean sauce, and spring water packed, Santa Catarina tuna is a delicious, ecologically responsible canned fish that is a deep departure from the grey-white flakes of your childhood.
