I can cite at least one or two recipes that call for tuna packed in olive oil, drained. Then elsewhere the same recipe calls for extra-virgin olive oil as an ingredient in the dish. What's the point? Why not NOT drain the tuna and just reduce the amount of oil in the other part of the recipe? What am I missing?
