Get Free Recipes – I Like Fish So Here Are My Favorite Tuna Recipes

I think back that every time my mom stocked up on tuna, it was on sale. Tuna can be a great easy meal as it’s high in nutrients, inexpensive and a great backup staple that keeps for a long time in the cupboard. While of course there is the standard tuna with mayo sandwiches, or the tuna on toast with a bit of white sauce, they are popular because they are easy to prepare. But they may quickly wear out their welcome in the lunch bag, or for a quick snack. Here are some easy and a bit more imaginative ways to putting a can of high protein tuna to good use.

Tuna in a can comes in 3 basic forms. ‘Chunk’ tuna or ‘flaked’ tuna, packed in water or oil, and albacore tuna. Although albacore is a bit more expensive, the reason is it is superior to the chunk or flake form, and enhances the tuna recipes. The texture as well as the firmness of albacore tuna is similar to chicken. You would always want to buy the tuna that is packed in water, just to avoid that oily taste. The water packed tuna also has a lot less calories as well. If you really like fish, fresh tuna from your seafood store adds other possibilities to your menus. Fresh tuna is great either broiled or lightly grilled.

Some Gourmet Tuna Sandwich Recipes
So lets begin with some great tuna recipes for sandwiches. This for a quick lunch or dinner for your family.
Start with a freshly baked loaf of French bread, sliced lengthwise.
– Lightly brush the bread with butter or olive oil and minced garlic
– Dice 1 large tomato and 1 small red onion

Distribute this mixture on the bottom half of the bread, then broil lightly.
Set the bread aside to prepare the tuna.

– Flake a can of tuna into a bowl. Add fresh parsley leaves snipped
– Add 1 can of drained, black olives sliced
– Add just enough mayo to moisten the mixture

Cut the bread into sandwich sized portions and place the tuna on the bottom half of the bread, and then top with shaved Parmesan cheese.

Broil until the cheese melts. Top with the upper half of the bread and serve warm.

Another way to prepare this sandwich is to mix all of the ingredients (the onion, tomato, cheese and garlic) into a bowl. Use flour tortillas and warm them lightly. Lay a fresh crispy leaf of lettuce on the tortilla. Add the tuna mixture and then roll it up. You can also substitute cheddar cheese for the Parmesan, as well as adding a bit of salsa sauce. Roll up and enjoy.

Tuna Can Be For Dinner As Well
Here is an easy quick delicious tuna recipe for dinner. A tuna casserole. My mom used to prepare her own special version of this casserole, and I’ve never gotten tired of it. It is quick and easy to make, inexpensive as well as filling.

Boil half a package of egg noodles and then drain
In a bowl combine:
– the egg noodles
– 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup
– 1/2 cup of milk
– 2 cans of albacore tuna drained
– 3 to 4 sliced fresh mushrooms
– 1 stalk of finely sliced celery
– 2 sliced green onions
– a pinch of cayenne pepper

Mix thoroughly. Butter a large baking dish and then spoon in the tuna-noodle mixture. Crush a small bag of regular flavored potato chips and distribute evenly over the casserole. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
Bake the casserole at 350 degrees for around 30 minutes. Serve with a dinner salad and French or garlic bread.
