No-Mayo Tuna Salad Sandwiches:SOO GOOD! Esp the artichokes!
1 loaf Italian bread cut in 1/2 lengthwise and scooped out, toasted in oven
2 cans tuna in olive oil, drained
3 tbsp capers
1/4 red onion, chopped
I can quartered artichoke hearts in water
1/2 Kalamata olives
1/4 C flat leaf parsley, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
S&P (Freshly cracked)
Mix together and cut into mini sammies! You’re welcome!
How fortuitous. All out of mayo and did not want to run to the store. So glad I looked here first. This wealth of tuna recipes has me giddy with possibilities! Also love the many ideas in the comments! May have to draw a name out of a hat to make a decision!
I went for the White Beans and Tuna recipe and will definitely be making it again! So delicious! I served it over a small bed of baby mixed greens. Love knowing that if I have tuna and white beans I will more than likely be able to make a delicious meal pronto!
Hi Sandy, I’m so glad you liked that white beans and tuna recipe! It’s a favorite here, so easy to put together.
Love this post and the ideas in the comments! My favorite dish is a tuna fish omelette. My mom always used to say fish was brain food, so this was something I’d make on exam days:
1. Start an omelette cooking in a well-buttered pan on low heat.
2. While the eggs are still wet, top half the omelette with a generous amount of tuna salad (I’d use just a tuna/mayo mix — on the dry side, with the tuna well flaked)
3. Layer on cheese (American works best IMHO0
4. Fold the omelette and cook until well heated through, with the cheese melted
This a hearty, salty, lucious, protein-packed breakfast. Bonus points if some of the tuna or cheese oozes out and gets crunchy on the buttered pan.
Oh yes, we had fish on Fridays, too! We always had a dish that everyone liked, from the adults to the big kids to the babies. It was a casserole of tuna fish, Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup or Cream of Celery soup, crushed potato chips, and some milk. It was easy for me to make as a youngster, and so I began cooking. We all loved it, although none of us makes such high-salt dishes today. (But full disclosure: I made it a few times in my adult life when going through really, really hard times. The casserole helped!)
My favorite tuna dinner recipe is what I call a “tuna roll up” It’s canned tuna rolled up inside a biscuit dough wrapper, baked golden brown, sliced into rounds and served with canned mushroom soup sauce. Easy and delicious.
Recipe Pls? Thank-you
Thank you so much.I had no idea what to cook for tonight and here comes your tuna
recipes spaghetti with tuna olives and cappers sounds yummy
We live in central Mexico. My husband is from here. A very common dish made here with tunafish is “ceviche de atun”. It is canned tuna with fresh lime juice, chopped onion, tomato and chile serrano. We like to add cut up avocado. You could add cilantro too. Everyone eats it on tostadas. It is healthy and delish!
What a great idea Anne, I love it!
My kids’ favorite way to have tuna is what we call a California Bowl. I mix canned tuna with a soy-based dressing or teriyaki sauce, chop cucumbers and avocados, and cut up seasoned dried seaweed into little strips. We put all over bowls of rice and voila! one of our favorite weeknight meals appears. I got the inspiration from a Trader Joe’s sample I tried once.
What a great idea, I love it!
My mother would make us kedgeree from canned tuna or salmon. Delicious!
