Hidden luxury from pantry: wine and tuna pairings

Font Size

FEELING A little stressed out but unable to take the weekend off for a vacation? Pamper yourself at home with good bottle of wine, a couple of cans of tuna in the pantry, and a few odds and ends in your refrigerator.

A lively Beaujolais or mild Rioja Crianza go well with a can of Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Spring Water, a dash of mustard in some Greek yogurt, and a spattering of capers spread the mix on whole wheat toast medallions, sprinkles with chives or parsley.

Pair a bolder red wine like burgundy or merlot with a casserole made with Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil. Looking for something with a little bite? Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil and Chili will bring a gentle heat in a spicy tuna roll by mixing in a little sriracha, Japanese mayo, scallions, and then laying the mix on a bed of sushi rice. Wash it down with a dry Riesling or a slightly acidic, light Zinfandel.

Sometimes cheese is all you need to make your week right again. Whip up mac and cheese but stir in a little Gold Seas Tuna Chunks with Herb and Garlic for a flavor twist. The tuna will cut through the heaviness of the cheese and noodles and make it a little lighter. Pair this comforting dish with either a dry Chardonnay or a Sauvignon Blanc.

If fresh, citrusy, and flavorful is what is needed to wash the doldrums away, whip up a tangy salad topped with Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Lemon and Pepper. To round out the meal, pair the dish with something light and fruity, light on the palate. Choose a sweet, light, white wine, or pick out an inexpensive dry Italian white such as a Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi or a light rosé.

Tuna curry isn’t something you commonly come across, but Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in a Light Indian curry is light and spicy without the overpowering heat. Try it on a bed of roasted vegetables like eggplant, and pair it with something light and sweet like an Australian moscato or even a light red like shiraz.

Leave the dishes, and all your worries, for tomorrow.
