What do do with canned tuna ?

My dh wants to know what we can do with canned tuna besides make tuna salad. We have a dozen or so cans in the pantry.

I've made "tuna cakes" before--I added some shredded cheddar cheese and parmesan to the tuna and mayonnaise, heated up a little oil in my frying pan, made some little patties, and fried 'em up. There's probably an actual recipe out there for something like this, but I was just experimenting and that's what I came up with.

I'm getting a little sick of tuna salad myself, so I'd love to hear some new ideas

Mix tuna with bake mix (or a low carb flour, or even Atkins cornbread mix), chopped onion, egg, and salt. Form into patties and fry in a little oil or butter. Yummmm. This works well with canned salmon too (just be sure to take out the skin and bones).

Check out my recipe for Tuna Quesadillas! Your tuna won't be smoked but I bet it'll still come out tasty! (You'll probably need two drained 6.5 ounce cans to equal one pouch of tuna.)

I made two recipes from the Recipe Room, Tuna Pie posted by Deanna and the Tuna Patties 1 posted by Nancy. The Tuna Pie is better in my opinion. Also, if you are in OWL or beyond I just mix some with mayo and spread it on a LaTortilla tortilla. Sprinkle some Monterey Jack cheese on it and nuke it in the micro until melted. Voila!, tuna melt.

I like to just mix it with mayo and put it on soya wasa crackers, put some shredded sharp chedder on top and broil until melted. It reminds me of tuna melt.

Also, i really like the tuna patties every else has mentioned, and like to add some chopped dill pickles to sour cream to dip the tuna patties in. Kind of like tarter sauce in a way. Hope this helps!!

It's basically still just tuna salad... but.. I found a recipe once for a tuna dip.. Tuna, Cream cheese about 2-4 oz per can depending on taste, a green onion, a tiny bit of mayo and a tsp or so of lemon juice.

Now that I am low carbing and I don't have anythign to really put it on.. Ive started taking the cream cheese and leaving it kind of chunky instead of mixing till smooth. I also add a piece of celery or two. Then I put a piece of american cheese on it and microwave it until the cheese just starts to melt. It's nice and chunky and it is great to bite into it and get a extra helping of cream cheese.

I had a recipe up a while back for "noodle-less tuna casserole" that's quick and easy!
Saute a little onion and celery in olive oil; add the well-drained tuna and a little cream, then sprinkle in some cheese and heat through. Salt and pepper to taste!
It takes about 5 minutes total and tastes a lot like tuna casserole!

This is kind of a jazzed up version of tuna salad but has a very good taste and is great on top of a Wasa or just eaten plain. If you are on induction you can omit the nuts with no problem!


Tuna Dip

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
12 ounces tuna (large can)
1 tablespoon horseradish, *to taste*
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
3/4 teaspoon lite soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons capers, chopped
1/3 cup pecans, chopped

Mix all ingredients together.

Per Serving; 1334 Calories; 104g Fat (69.4% calories from fat); 91g Protein; 12g Carbohydrate; 4g Dietary Fiber; 263mg Cholesterol; 2582mg Sodium. Exchanges: 1/2 Grain(Starch); 12 1/2 Lean Meat; 14 Fat; 1/2 Other Carbohydrates.

(The carb total is for the entire recipe)
