What to do with Tuna packed in veg oil?
My husband inadverently purchased four cans of tuna packed in vegtable oil instead of water. Anyone have any ideas what I could do with it?
Just drain it well (you can put it in a strainer and rinse it, if you feel that's necessary) and use it as you would the water pack.
Make an authentic salade nicoise, which calls for oil-packed tuna.
A friend and I sometimes make a kind of scaled down version we found a recipe for a few years ago: Boiled or steamed potatoes, sliced. Steamed string beans. Oil-packed tuna. And a very light vinaigrette with mustard seeds.
Funny, it's never occurred to me to use oil-packed for basic old American tuna salad. But for the above, definitely oil-packed.
Eat it, and enjoy the good flavor that oil gives tuna. Water packing ruins tuna, in my opinion. Emancipate all water packed tuna!
Dran the Tuna
Boil 6 or 7 large peeled potatoes with about a cup of italian parsley, and salt. Drain, the water off when fork tender. Mix in the Tuna flaked 3 cans, salt pepper and garlic powder,med red onion chopped, and red wine vinegar and top with fresh parsely. serve warm or cold, with red wine vinegar.
