IASA is the first company in the world to produce tuna in glass jars. The company was founded in 1969 by a family originally from Cetara, a small village on the Amalfi Coast, known for its fishing and processing of tuna, anchovies and anchovy sauce.

In my household I am the sole tinned fish eater, for which I am occasionally shunned for introducing some pungent odors into the house (it was just that one time that sautéing some sardines turned into an olfactory assault that I’ll never live down). I mention this for context, as when a few nights ago my wife suggested that she’d love a nice Branzino for dinner but didn’t feel like going out I envisioned my opportunity for redemption!
I have some Branzino! In a tin! I exclaimed. This was met with worry, doubt. Eating anything but tuna from a tin was a scary prospect for her. I cracked the tin open to find some nice looking filets in golden olive oil. I foisted them out and set them on a plate alongside some roasted small potatoes, a bit of greens, and a spritz of lemon. It could have come from a restaurant. For my wife, a tinned fish doubter, it was a win.
These were delicious – well cooked, well seasoned (lightly), well packed, and tasty.

This is not the least expensive tin, I wouldn’t call it pricey either, but it is value for the money. The fish is lovely, a nice fat filet. The flavor is subtle, but quality is high. Would make a great meal with just about any starch and veggie combo you can think of.
