Tuna Sandwiches are great quick and easy lunch item. Today, I’m mixing things up by adding a little avocado, cilantro, and lemon to my Tuna Sandwich to make a light, fresh and flavorful lunch item!

With the addition of Blue Harbor Fish Co‘s sustainable Tuna pouches, this is a quick to prep, and delicious way to make a Tuna Avocado Sandwich.

If you caught on my IG stories last month, I stopped by Blue Harbor’s booth at Expos West 2018 to see what they had going on at their booth and talk to Laura Ali, Blue Harbor’s Registered Dietitioan And Nutritionist.

Laura educated me on how Blue Harbor complies with sustainable practices, as well as being MSC Certified which ensures that each fish can be traced back to the boat that it was caught on.

Something interesting that I learned was the benefit of using pouched tuna vs canned. In pouches, tuna is cut thinner prior to cooking, which means less time cooked. less time cooked equals more flavor out of your fish.

I’m also sold on Blue Harbor pouches since there is little to no draining required. One less step in prep means I can get the family fed quicker!

Avocado and Tuna is a match mean in heaven. It’s light and packed with protein, and plenty of flavor! I lightly mixed everything in bowl so it’s not too mushy, and still has a beautiful texture to it.

Along with a little alfafa sprout on top to add a little crunch, this is the best way to mix up a tuna sandwich!

Feel free to add your favorite veggies to your Tuna Avocado too! Add a little crunch, by adding some fresh cut cucumber, or maybe some bell pepper! Any way you make it, it’s going to come out amazing.
