Our canned DLM Albacore Tuna is made from young hook and line caught Albacore tuna from the Oregon coast and canned locally in olive oil and Jacobsen Sea Salt. They're caught as juveniles before they have accumulated mercury from years at sea. 

Grist Provisions Bucatini is a go-to pick for any pasta dish, but feel free to substitute for your favorite dried long strand pasta. 


  • 4 servings of Grist Provisions Bucatini
  • 3 Tbsp Vera Jane's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 green onions, white and green parts chopped separately
  • 6-10 anchovies, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp capers, drained
  • 1 cup fresh herbs like parsley, dill, or celery
  • 1 7.5-oz can DLM Albacore Tuna in oil, drained and broken into chunks
  • Pinch or two of red chili flakes


Cook pasta in well-salted boiling water till al dente. Save 1/2-3/4 cup cooked pasta water before draining.
In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil and briefly sauté the garlic, chopped whites of green onion, anchovies, and capers for 2-3 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup cooked pasta water and let reduce down until about 2 Tbsp remain.
Add the hot drained pasta, chopped green onion tops, torn herbs, and tuna, tossing until well combined. Add additional 1/4 cup pasta water if desired.
Plate pasta for serving and garnish with any additional herbs and a sprinkle of red chili flakes.

This is just delicious and easy. My teenage kids loved it and they are not fans of tuna. Would love more recipes with DLM tuna!
