Food on Friday ~ Tuna

Always choose fish from a sustainable source.

Perhaps for some good reasons Tuna is nowhere near as popular as salmon.  However tuna makes a very healthy meal, and perhaps should appear more often in our menu planners.   But, always choose sustainable tuna to eat.

Many people eat canned tuna, which is OK if there’s nothing better on offer.  However, if all you’ve ever had is tuna out of a tin, then you’re missing out on one of life’s great experiences ~ fresh tuna steaks grilled on the barbecue.

Tuna is also an essential ingredient if you’re thinking of home-made sushi.

Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest has a fabulous recipe for a spicy brown rice seared tuna roll bowl.  This is a complete sushi dinner in 30 minutes! Looks great doesn’t it?  Tieghan also has a recipe for Korean avocado tuna sushi roll.

Some tuna canapés from Petra at Food Eat Love; sesame crusted tuna and watermelon soldiers, and you should be able to make these in 15 minutes.  Great to serve with drinks in your yard on a sunny day.

Tuna and Watermelon Soldiers

This is a brilliant idea from Chungah at Damn Delicious ~ healthy snack boxes for an entire week’s lunches.  Greek yogurt tuna salad, an entire week in one twenty-minute tuna salad meal prep.  Now there’s no excuse for not taking a healthy lunch to work every day.

From our BBC good food I can offer you this Moroccan-spiced tuna, ready in 10 minutes.  Now that’s a fast, easy, healthy, and tasty dish.

For those of us who really like recipe collections Cooking Light offers up 38 of their favourite fresh tuna recipes; including this very easy sesame albacore tuna.

And, another recipe collection from delish; recipes to make you rethink tuna.  This includes an incredibly easy dish from New Orleans; poached tuna with kumquats and jalapeno.

Drinks.  For most of these dishes you may want to drink a Japanese beer like Asahi or Sapporo, or perhaps a really good traditional sake, (try buying at Tengu Sake online).  However, Fiona Beckett at Matching food & wine, has some great wine suggestions to go with tuna.

And if you want to grill your tuna on the barbecue, try grilling your fish on a cedar plank.

    LOVE fresh tuna but the price is one of those good reasons so it’s an occasional treat. Tinned tuna is reserved for sandwiches and emergency pasta midweek meals when the fridge is bare! Once saw an English translation in a French restaurant: “Tuna with Dutch sauce”. Interesting I thought. Then the light dawned. Hollandaise sauce! Duh!

    1. Canned tuna is a good idea for your emergency pack, because you’ll never eat it except in an emergency. ❤ 😉 ❤

  6. I have eaten many fishes and yes, tuna is almost always canned. The ‘soldiers’ are very unusual looking!!! Nicely written, my friend!
