View Full Version : tuna?

What can you make to eat with canned tuna except for tuna salad (with mayo)? Isnt all that mayo bad? or is it ok? I usually use 2 TBSP of mayo for a can of tuna..

Tuna is just a really easy way of getting protein for me.. About 33G per can and theyre small..

Back when I thought fat was bad, I would mix tuna with yellow mustard and curry powder.

I've used smartbalance mayo. It's supposed to be better for you than reg mayo, though you'll want to double-check the nutritional facts.

I eat tuna with oil out of the can for the next few weeks. mustard does help though.

I mix it up with mayo, mustard, cheddar cheese and chopped onion. Smear a thick layer of that on a piece of bread, slap another piece of bread on top, drop it on a hot buttered skillet (about 3 minutes each side) till the cheese starts melting, then eat. My wife calls it a tuna melt.

Lately i've been mixing my tuna with low fat cottage cheese. Nothing like adding even more lean protein. I eat tuna packed in water. Drain it, add 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, ground pepper, sometimes garlic powder. Put it on toasted bread, good stuff.

I heard a new one the other day. It was italian dressing and tuna. I don't know how good that would taste, but I'm going to give it a shot tomorrow.

Lately I've been mixing mine with Franks and a sweet onion calorie free dressing. Really good. If you want a sandwhich, that above metioned tuna melt sounds like paradise to this starving lard ass. :spam:

I buy the pre-flavoured tuna. Spicy thai chili is my fav!

I mix mine with Franks(although I put a chile extract in it to kick the heat up through the roof), a little honey(to get that sweet heat thing going), a little olive oil, and black pepper.

i usually eat tuna in a roll

I mix tuna with lemon juice and pepper..

I pretty much just always eat Princes oil tuna in a sandwich with wholemeal bread + thin layer of butter. I tend to like things like this, simple and quick to make.

I may have a go at some of those idea's though ;)

I like to mix tuna with some salsa,throw in some kindey beans(for some fiber and extra protein), great some cheese on top and throw it in the microwave until the cheese melts. it's actualy really good!!

You should try a "French Dressing" instead of the mayo. It gives it a nice moisure content, and is way better for you than mayo.


-1 tbsp. of olive oil
-Juice from one fresh lemon (you can use half if you don't like as much lemon)
-salt and pepper to taste

mix that together and then incorporate this into a can of tuna.

A great recipe as well for tuna is to mix it with one serving of pasta. I'm partial to rigatoni. Toss it with tomato sauce, add some extra garlic, and a little crushed red pepper. The combo of tuna and pasta is a great protein/carb team. Plus who can't love pasta?

I like to mix it with salsa.

I like my tuna to be solid white albacore with 2 tbsp mayo and a few shots of tabasco, salt pepper to taste and a lot of chopped red onion and voila tastey !

I ate this everyday for over a year when I worked a job where I didn't care what my breath smelled like. Now I just eat it on the weekends.
