Skipjack Tuna Fajitas

Our family loves tuna fish.  I always feel a bit guilty about eating it, however, because of the fact that most tuna fish is not responsibly caught and fishing for tuna harms dolphins.  

Skipjack tuna is also good for you, which I love because it’s easy to get the boys to eat good protein and Omega 3 fatty acids.  There are no fillers or additives, and canned Ocean Naturals skipjack tuna makes quick meals super easy.

So how does the Skipjack tuna taste?  Fresh…and naturally delicious!  Since I am on a Mexican food kick lately, I wanted to make skipjack tuna fajitas, and they turned out good!  (I used tortillas that we purchase from Bountiful Baskets, because they contain the best ingredients that I’ve found in tortillas….no hydrogenated oils, etc.)

We eat fish regularly, but not meat so this would be a great way for our family to enjoy fajitas again!  Thanks for sharing your creativity in the kitchen! #client
