Recipe Spotlight: Responsible Choice Spicy Tuna Wrap

For a quick lunch or dinner filled with delicious nutrition, try my Responsible Choice Spicy Tuna Wrap.

Hy-Vee Select Solid Light Skipjack Tuna is caught using the pole and line catch method and is highly selective, catching one fish at a time and producing very little bycatch.

Hy-Vee Select Solid White Albacore Tuna is caught using pole and troll gear, considered to be among the most selective and ocean-friendly methods available for catching tuna. Pole-and-troll-caught fishing also targets younger tuna that have lower levels of mercury than older fish caught on longlines.
