Got any tuna recipes ? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I have lots of canned tuna, but the "normal" ways to serve it - sandwiches w/ mayo, casseroles w/ pasta and maybe cheese, will get boring pretty quick.

Got any unusual tuna recipes? Mine is tuna with canned pineapple. It's a bodybuilder thing....then there's tuna shakes....

take a can of tuna (drained) and add a dash of salt and pepper......some chopped onion and bell pepper....about a tablespoon of flour.....and an egg (got chickens?)

mix well and shape into patties.......fry in a small amount of oil (not deep frying....just a little in the pan to keep em from sticking) till crispy on both sides

my mom used to make these ALL the time when i was a kid and i still love em......YUM

you can even eat leftover ones on bread as a sandwich

hope this helps

Have you tried Tuna Suppositories?

Or perhaps a tuna/sparrow sandwich?

Butter a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish. Take out one sleeve of crackers- ritz or saltines, your choice. Roll them with a rolling pin until they become crumbs. Put 2/3 of them in the bottom of your casserole dish. Open a can of cream of mushroom (or whatever cream soup you have) and spread 1/2 of it over the crackers. Open a can of tuna, drain it and spread it over the soup layer. Fill up the can containing the remaining soup with milk and a few dehydrated onions. A little bit of finely chopped celery would be good too. A sprinkle of lemon pepper would be a tasty addition at this point. Pour it over the tuna layer. Melt a couple of spoons of butter or margarine and mix in the remaining 1/3 of the crackers and mix together. Spread the buttered crumbs over the top of the casserole. Place in the oven at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly.

Saw tuna pot pie above. Starkist used to make these commercially...and they were really good. Anyone have a recipe?

Tuna smores? You were kidding, right? :)

Tunaghetti: Saute tuna in olive oil laced with Italian spices. Albacore preferred. Careful, it "pops" when frying. Pour over skinny spaghetti. Kinda like enhanced olive oil/pesto sauce.

Tuna Kedgeree. This traditional British dish is normally made with smoked fish (haddock or kippers), but tinned fish makes it easy. Start with one-day old boiled or steamed white rice, add a couple of chopped up hard-boiled eggs, a can of peas, then add the can of tuna. Season with salt and black pepper. Heat and serve. Kedgeree is a good cold-weather food; it is very filling.

My favorite tuna "recipe" is when hubby arrives home and asks 'what's for dinner.' I say 'tuna' and he says, 'let's go out!'

Well, have you tried these sites: (it's the bumble bee tuna page) also: (chicken of the sea) this page actually has a recipe 'generator' to help you select a recipe according to your needs. They both looked interesting. Then there is always: (They have thousands of recipes, and I'm sure some use tuna!) Don't forget the can opener!!

-- kat (, July 11, 1999.

yeah, don't forget the can opener! I bought a bunch of those little GI can openers. They're about 50 cents now, but I bet they'll trade for SEVERAL cans of food if TSHTF.

Remember, just in case you have to go to some kind of government shelter, they'll take your multitool away from you cause its got a knife blade...have a separate can opener....

no smore tuna 4 hey, on the tuna dish that has to be baked./...who said we will have natural gas for the ovens?

I just found a great new food! New to me anyway. Canned mackerel fillets. More flavor than tuna, almost as much protein, and more calories because of more fat (though I guess that could be just cause they use more vegetable oil...still, more calories per can). I ts not really fillets, though, its broken up like cheap tuna is. So what it still tastes great. YUM YUM !!

It costs about the same per pound as tuna, plus it comes in lightweight rectangular pulltab cans so its more convienient too! COOL!

The cans I got are "3 Diamonds" brand so if your store has 3 Diamonds tuna they might be able to order you a case of this stuff.
