Albacore tuna is flaked and slow-cooked with sunny tomatoes, Provençal herbs, and olive oil. The slow-cooking allows the tuna to fully absorb and infuse the flavor, and what results is a refreshingly bright tuna that will change your mind about canned fish.
Serve the La Belle-Iloise Flaked Tuna with Tomato on tostines or flat bread as aperitifs, and also in quinoa or tabbouleh salads, and sandwiches. Use them in croquets, pastas, or even stuffed in peppers or mushrooms.
La Belle-Iloise Conserverie was founded in 1932 near Quiberon, a fishing port in Brittany, France. Georges Hilliet was a son of a fisherman, and it seemed a natural thing to work with something close to his heart. The easy access to the sea also guaranteed fish that was fresh and quality.
Hilliet opened a direct sales store in 1967, after firmly distancing himself from the pressures of mass distribution. In 1982, under the leadership of his sons Georges and Bernard, La Belle-Iloise Conserverie began distance selling (or mail order selling). By 2011, they had over 50 stores. This is, at its heart, a family business. And now, helmed by Bernard’s daughter, Caroline Hilliet Le Branchu, they continue to be at the top of their game, selling only the best quality canned fish.
