    Just bought myself one of those canned tuna in water. How do you prepare one of these?

    I usually by one of those tuna with mayo where you could just spread it on bread, but I bought this one because it has lesser fat (really really less! :eek:).

    I read somewhere all you need to do is drain the water and you're set to go. True?

    I'm thinking to put some lemon on top of it. The smell is :ninja:

    Thanks

    Drain it, then do what you want with it. I mix it with mayonnaise, pepper, ketchup and a little onion and have it in a sandwich or pop it under the grill on some toast. Alternatively, mix with mayonnaise and sweetcorn and stir into pasta.

    pretty much as the above post says, once you drain the water out, mix it with a bit of mayo then spread it on the bread as you would normally do

    I usually buy tuna this way, drain the water, squeeze lemon juice, add half a finely chopped onion, a teaspoon of mayonise and a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, thoroughly then add some pepper after spreading it on bread or crackers.

    But just now, I did cook it with mushrooms, a tablespoon of oyster sauce and some lemon.

    mmm... healthy and delicious!

    Sounds great. Tuna is quick and effortless but my fav way is tuna, salad cream, pepper and sweetcorn on toast.

    Tuna?

    It's simple. Open can. Pour contents into bin and eat something which doesn't have the honour of being one of the foulest food products available.

    The smell is as bad as the taste. My old flatmate used to leave half a tin of Tuna in a bowl and leave it open in the fridge...stank the kitchen out at times

    I eat a can a day; man I love tuna! I was lucky enough to acquire some John West tuna in a can, that isn't in oil or water, you just scrape it out. I have mine with salad, drowned in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt & pepper and mayo with walnuts as well. It's sooo good, just had one about 5 minutes ago!

    Don't do what my housemate did and turn it upside down before using a can opener -.-

    Made a right mess of the tin and had to turn it back up the other way as surprise surprise it's not designed to be opened upside down! :L

    My female cat goes mental for the stuff, as well as cooked fresh salmon. To them it's like crack cocaine.
