Too much of a good thing?
So I've got a stack of canned tuna in the cubbard and want to use it. Anybody have favorite recipes?
Check out Paula Deen's tuna burger recipe. I made them a couple weeks ago and they were really good. (I added a little cayenne and nixed the pimento)
Tuscan Inspired Bean and Tuna salad.
Can of White beans - drained and rinsed
Red Pepper - when I have time I'll roast it first
Fresh Chopped Basil nad Flat Leaf Parsley
Red Wine Vin - Olive Oil, Red WIne Vin, Dijon Mustard, S&P
all of this to taste
and add a drained can of tuna
I toss it all on a bed of Baby Spinach
I kinda use it as a "kitchen sink" salad
If I have artichoke hearts I toss those in, sometimes capers, know what I mean?
Grilled asparagus is also awesome in this dish
I do my tuna salad with tart apples, mayo and sour cream, green onions, yellow onions, celery. Yum.
Also I saw this recipe somewheres online. It looks great... uses tart, unsweetened dried cranberries!
Tuna with Sun-Dried Cranberries and Lemon
1 can solid white albacore tuna
3 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
½ fresh lemon
2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
1/8 teaspoon unrefined sugar
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped sun-dried cranberries
Pinch of sea salt
Directions: Squeeze the lemon and remove any seeds. Combine the lemon juice, sugar and salt with the onions, and set aside. Drain the tuna thoroughly. Mix together all the ingredients immediately before serving.
Makes 2 to 3 serving
PB & J with tuna sandwich ... but only if your best friend is pregnant.
Tuna salad California roll (substitute the fake crab with the tuna salad)
Tuna cakes (a la crab cakes)
I make this recipe with the whole can of tuna, rather than the half can called for int he ingredient list. I know it sounds strange, but it's good, especially if you dress the carrots while warm and let it sit in the fridge a bit before eating it so the flavors meld. http://www.recipezaar.com/111111
ETA: I should also add that shallots (or vidalias or walla walla onion, if you have them, or gosh, even a red onion) in place of the yellow onions are a nice substitution. More flavor.
Tuna with wasabi mayo for kick - buy a little tub of the wasabi powder and stir a *little* into the mayo before adding it to the tuna! YUM. You can serve these in endive leaves for a really cute presentation.
