Canned Tuna with Herbs and Spices

Thursday, January 30, 2014Enz F

Canned Tuna is a great option for quick and easy meals.

Canned Tuna is a great option for delicious, yet effortless meals as there are a number of energy-conserving and time-saving recipes that you can do with it. Not only budget-friendly, it is also a healthy pick that is always readily available in the kitchen cupboard. The handiness of canned tuna may make it seem like a prime choice for obtaining Omega 3 – an essential fatty acid that can help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disorders such as arrhythmia and high blood pressure. Along with some herbs and spices (which also, most of the time, are just sitting in the shelves), you can already get a quick access to a hearty, tasty and tummy-filling trouble-free dish. This is so appropriate when your fridge is scarced but want to get rid of the pain of getting a quickie to the grocery and all you need is just convenience.

  • 1 can 180 g. tuna flakes in vegetable oil
  • 1 pc. small tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 pc. calamansi (calamondin)
  • ½ tbsp. dried parsley
  • ½ tbsp. mint leaves, minced
  • 1 pc. siling haba (green finger pepper), deseeded and chopped
  • ¼ tsp. cumin powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt

This dish also compliments with garlic bread and toast.

  1. Drain the tuna and set aside the oil. Toss the tuna flakes in squeezed calamansi juice.
  2. In a small pan, heat the tuna oil and sauté the tomato and siling haba. When the tomato is slightly withered, add in the tuna flakes. Stir continuously.
  3. Season with cumin powder, ground pepper and salt, and then sprinkle with parsley and mint leaves.
  4. Remove from heat and serve with hot steamed rice.
