When we were encouraged to stay indoors for a long time last year, many of us had to get in touch with our inner chefs. Sure, a lot got to experiment with dishes like ube cheese pan de sal, sushi bake, and even dalgona coffee, but there are those who struggle making even the most basic of dishes. Yes, we exist.
For those of us who live solo and can’t cook, we turned to deliveries, pre-made meals, and canned goods. One of our fave discoveries is Gold Seas, a premium brand of tuna. It’s made from 100% pure yellowfin tuna with no extenders, which has a distinctly delicious flavor with no fishy aftertaste.
They have a wide variety of variants and our favorite is the Gold Seas Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil. As its name suggests, it’s made from 100% yellowfin tuna, which has a distinctly delicious flavor with no fishy aftertaste. Simply put, the fishy aftertaste is the lansa taste that can ruin a dish.
What makes yellowfin tuna special? It has a firmer texture than skipjack tuna, which is the most popular type of tuna being consumed. Yellowfin has a milder smell and taste, so it doesn’t have that lansa flavor. Because of this, yellowfin is widely used for raw dishes, such as sashimi.
The case we want to make is: Gold Seas Yellowfin Tuna is versatile enough to be cooked in different ways, and you don’t need to be a kitchen expert to make them. I was even able to cook with it. Achievement unlocked!
Here’s a recipe that we tried using the Gold Seas Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil. We prepared No-oven Tuna Pizza Bites:
It’s such an easy recipe that any kitchen noob can be an instant chef. We prepared this for movie night and you can do it, too. You can also try these other recipes by Gold Seas Premium Tuna:

There are a lot of things we enjoy about Gold Seas Premium Tuna, apart from its premium quality, versatility when cooking, and no fishy aftertaste. We want to make sure we put lots of care and attention to the food we eat and here’s what we found:
First off, Gold Seas is Philippine-made and love supporting local brands. It’s made by General Nutrifoods Philippines, Inc., a subsidiary of RD Corporation. They’re a fully-integrated group of companies engaged in fishing, ship building and repair, manufacturing, exports and distribution, processing, and more.
General Nutrifoods Philippines, Inc. uses state-of-the-art facilities to ensure quality. The packaging is also of premium quality, with the tuna packed in a lithograph-printed can with an easy open bottom lid. No need for a can opener!
Gold Seas Premium Tuna is responsibly-fished, which means they only partner with companies that have sustainable practices in fishing operations, canning methods, and distribution. It’s also Halal-certified, which means more people can enjoy it.
This premium tuna brand is easy to find and is available in all leading supermarkets, convenience stores, Shopee, and Lazada. Buy it on your next grocery run or if you’re feeling lazy, shop for it online. It’s also available in the biggest stores in Singapore, and will soon make its way to the US and the Middle East. It really is world-class and we’re excited for overseas Filipinos and foreigners to try it out.
If you want to feel like an instant chef, we recommend Gold Seas Premium Tuna!
