Does anyone have any good tuna recipes? I've been avoiding eating tuna because the only way I really know how to make it is with mayo on a sandwich.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Here's a couple of personal faves for me:

1 can tuna
fat-free sour cream to taste
pickle relish to taste
jalapenos to taste.

Mix up and eat up. Yummy!

1 can tuna
Grey Poupon mustard - 1tbsp or so
chopped up cilantro


Eat up.

Or you can crack open a thermometer and pour in a little extra mercury to add to the mercury already there. lol

^^^^^Yup just the way I like it. I like to add some NF Mayo to just to give it little more texture.

Tuna burgers/patties

3 cans of tuna
3 eggs
Bread crumbs to hold it together
chopped up green peppers and onions
herbs/pepper to taste
dijon mustard

Put some pam into a pan and cook until brown on each side.

Usually makes about 5 good sized patties and I eat them for lunch/snack at night or during the day.

canned tuna is made from baby, or young tuna fish so their mercury content isn't enough to be bad. If it was a full grown tuna then thats another story...

How much bread crumbs do you use? I used 1 can of tuna, 1 egg, and 3/4 of a piece of toast for the crumbs. When I cooked it most of it fell apart?

just add 1 or two cans of tuna (the more tuna the less cheese for the pasta) to some mac and cheese
also cook regular pasta and add olive oila dn salk and peper and romano cheese and put as much tuna in it and it tastes delish

Mix the tuna with spaghetti sauce, like you would if you were making spaghetti bolognaise.

I like to cook the spaghetti, or some other noodles, than drain and clean the saucepa. Then I throw the noodles back in along with the tuna and sauce, and mix it all and simmer until its all warm.

Serve with cheese!

I make this up in the morning before heading to work and split it for my snacks durring the day with a yoghurt and an apple or banana. It takes about 15 minutes to cook and has about 75 g of protein in it.

2 tbsp olive oil
1.5 cup frozen vegies (includes onions, celery, carrots, peas, red and green peppers)
2 cans chunk light tuna packed in water
0.5 cup egg whites
spices (I use clubhouse greek, and roasted red pepper and garlic)

I fry the veggies in the olive oil until the onions soften then I add the drained tuna and spices. I fry that for a couple of minutes while breaking up the tuna chunks and then I add the egg whites and cook them in. Usually I grate a little old cheddar cheese in just because I love cheese but if you're worried about the fat content just leave it out. Put a little ketchup on top and you're good to go. Lots of protein and almost no fat and a tuna dish that's edible.

1 6.5 oz can tuna
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4-1/2 cup spinach leaves
a few pieces of celery and apple
pepper to taste

Throw everything in a blender, shake/stir it up while blending, spread on 2 slices of wheat bread. Mmmm. It's like a homemade tuna salad sandwich.

WOW. I just made one of these (1 can tuna, 1 egg, bread crumbs, a little Emeril Ligasse spice) and it was AMAZING. Props, WBLean, I'm hooked on tuna now (I was previously trying to shovel down the stuff whenever I could manage it).

Its called the..."the tuna melt"

Toast up 2 slices of bread, throw a can of tuna mixed with mayo on top of one slice, then throw thick slices of cheese on top of the tuna, then other slice of bread on top, then nuke that **** for 30...Take my word for it, its BOMB!

Cook 1 cup (dry measure) brown rice, add a tin of tuna in olive oil and some cracked pepper. When you realise you don't have enough time to eat it, put it in a blender with hot water and chug.
It tastes awesome...

my favorite is:

1 can of tuna
1 cup of long grain white rice (1/4 cup uncooked)
2 tbsp of Thousand Island salad dressing
splash of lemon juice
season to taste

Just try it before you think it's gross. I could eat this everyday.

i do a quick and easy tuna pasta (before trying this i HATED tuna pasta dishes)
make the pasta like you would normally, then do what you normally would for a regular mince based sauce, accept i substitute the mince for a 450grm can of tuna. drain off the oil/springwater/brine and mix it in. add italian herbs + spices and serve. tastes damn good :)

I don't necessarily have a recipe but something that goes GREAT with tuna is chives. Try any one of these recipes with chives and you won't regret it.

I just buy the tuna creations in the pouch. they have a few flavored ones. I like the StarKist Tuna Creations Hickory Smoked Tuna. Toast some wheat bread, add some cheddar cheese slices and bam.

also on the back of the pouches they have recommended recipies.

I love tuna melts:
mix tuna with mayo, italian seasoning and hot mustard. Spread on bread. Cover in cheese and put under the broiler.

I also like ghetto tuna casserole (tuna and mac)

I found this recipe, which I have yet to try. I imagine it would be good, if you can spare the time. Thats right, it involves real cooking.

3 cloves garlic
2tbsp olive oil
1 28-oz can of tomatoes
1 6.5-oz can tuna, drained
1/2 tsp each oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, salt
1 tbsp capers (if you have them)

In a large skillet, saute the garlic in the olive oil for a couple of minutes, until softened. Dump in tomatoes, juce and all, and mash them up with fork or potato masher. Add the tuna, seasonings, and capers, and stir. Bring to a boil, then lower heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Toss with hot cooked pasta and sprinkle with lots of grated Parmesan cheese.


If anyone tries this, let me know what you think of it!

Kind of outdated thread, but I found two that are pretty good, especially if you're cutting.

Packet of tuna, add a little sour cream, Fat free

or tuna, fat free ranch and if you can afford the calories, little chunks of cheddar cheese.

I used two cans of tuna and one egg as well as the onion bread crumbs mustard and a tiny bit of mayo. These are awesome and a great way to get protein in. I am hooked. I just went out and bought 20 cans of tuna. OH YA got to love the PROTEIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
