With a can of tuna in your pantry, you’re never more than 30 minutes away from a delicious, nutritious meal. Whether it’s tossed through a salad or used to make a quick-smart pasta sauce, canned tuna is one of the most convenient and versatile ingredients around. But just as you wouldn’t dream of dressing your salad with cheap vegetable oil, when you’re making tuna the hero of a dish, quality counts.
Just as the Italians gave us pizza, pasta and gelato, it took an Italian family that migrated to Australia in the 1940s to introduce us to canned tuna as it should be. Driven by a desire to recreate the flavours of their homeland, the Valmorbida family first launched Sirena Tuna in 1956, sharing their passion for quality Italian food with the local community.
Over the past 60 years, Sirena’s iconic yellow cans and mermaid logo have become synonymous with quality and amazing taste. The secret lies in Sirena’s choice of the finest oil blends and flavoursome tuna loins from freshly caught yellowfin and skipjack tuna.
Today, quality and sustainability go hand in hand at Sirena. All of the tuna is 100 per cent pole and line caught, meaning that each fish is caught one at a time, without the use of harmful nets.
When you open a can of Sirena Tuna, that quality is immediately apparent in the generous chunks of pale pink tuna fillet. With its unrivalled flavour and premium olive oil blend, the Sirena Classic Style Tuna in Oil offers the ultimate in versatility.
Delicious on its own or as an ingredient, Sirena Classic Style Tuna is equally at home in a weekend brunch omelette or a midweek lunch salad, a comforting pasta bake for dinner, or an Italian-style tuna and bean dip for your next event.
Think of yourself more as a tuna purist? Containing only premium tuna and water, the Classic Style Tuna in Springwater is a light-tasting choice for café-style salads and sandwiches.
Or, for those who prefer a hint of heat, each can of Sirena Tuna with Chilli in Oil contains a whole chilli, adding pep to pasta sauces and pan-fried tuna patties.
