I've making my own pan bagnats for many years. Usually I just drizzle the oil from the can right on to the bread. It's supposed to be "wet"---that's the bagnat part. Be sure to use the best quality olive oil packed tuna you can find. Preferrably from Spain. The supermarket "Genova" brand, if you read the fine print, is made by Chicken of the Sea. And that tuna could be coming from anywhere, in all probability Asia.
