I want your best tuna recipes

January 17th, 2012 at 04:16 pm

Tuna's cousin, Tina.

I'm not the biggest fan of canned tuna, but it's an easy way to get more fish in one's diet, and recently, I bought about 6 cans of tuna on sale. Plus it's a cheap meal.

Does anyone have any really good recipes that make use of canned tuna? It has to be really good, cus like I said, I'm not crazy about it, but it's okay.

The usual ways I make it are:

1. In a sandwich
2. In a salad with macaroni, celery, grated carrot...
3. Melted on an English muffin with cheddar.

I always get the chunk tuna in water because it's said to have lower concentrations of mercury than solid white tuna.

    My favorite way to eat tuna is in a green salad. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, tuna, with just a little ranch dressing on top.

    I also like it in a cold pasta salad. Say curly pasta, tuna, some cooked peas, a little low fat mayo, maybe some red onion, and add a little garlic salt. I chill the pasta and peas before making the salad.

    I hate warm or hot tuna. I won't touch it if it has been warmed up.

    I've made tuna patties (like salmon patties).

    1 can of tuna
    1 egg
    large handful of shredded parmesan or romano cheese (this is what gives it the flavor kick)
    2 scallions (green onions) diced
    4 crackers, smashed

    Mix together, form into patties and fry in a little olive oil.

    Mostly I just dump a huge glob of Miracle Whip and a can of tuna in a bowl, mix and eat straight. DH likes to do it with 1000 Island dressing instead of Miracle Whip. This goes well either on sandwiches or stuffed into celery stalks.

    Like Lucky Robin, I make something like her patties, but call them tuna cakes. I usually use two cans of tuna, an egg, mayonaise, chopped up celery, a dash of tumeric, and bread crumbs to make patties. I then fry them in a little extra virgin olive oil.

    I like the tuna cakes/patties, also. There's a pasta recipe called Pasta Del Sol and the addition of tuna makes it not just delicious but outstanding! You might give that a try and see if it's something you like.

    Tuna in a salad instead of chicken...yum! I buy this Asian Sesame dressing made by Panera (found at Target) and it is so delish.

    I make a really nerdy tuna casserole with it. I make a yummy concoction with cream cheese and mayo mixed up, mix that with boiled pasta of your choice (the different shapes make it more interesting), a bag of mixed frozen veggies and tuna. Mix until even with a spatula, then cover with shredded cheese of choice and bake for 30-45 minutes. It is creamy goodness. On the fatty side, but so good.
