Re: Tinned tuna

If its in oil, I would suggest a Salad Nicoise.

Otherwise, make Tuna Mayonnaise, and use it to fill baked potatoes.

Re: Tinned tuna

Thanks everybody for the recipes. I do a tuna spaghetti as well:

grated rind of lemon
juice of lemon
capers to taste
garlic, chopped
salt and herb pepper blend (the best is available from Sunny Caribbee http://www.sunnycaribbee.com/acb/showpr … mp;CATID=2)
2 small tins of tuna in water
extra virgin olive oil
Mix altogether and combine with hot cooked spaghetti.


Enjoy!

Re: Tinned tuna

Stir it into a basic tomato sauce along with some sliced courgettes and lots of garlic, and toss with spaghetti.
