Good healthy recipe

Go with Albacore, it's the best tasting...take 1.5 can to 2 cans and mix in 4tblsp Paul Newman Family Recipe Italian salad dressing, 2 diced celery sticks, 3 tbsp goat cheese and sliced up green olives..mixed it all together... delicious.

You can make a simple tuna spread. Ingredients:

tuna
cottage cheese
pepper
sweet paprika
salt if needed

Don`t overdo the pepper and paprika, its just for flavour.

Mix it up and that`s it. Keep it in a fridge.

Cottage cheese? Very cool...I'm trying that. Learned something new today.

Here's my recipe:

  • 2 cans of tuna
    4 tbsp of mayonnaise - the full fat kind. Got to treat yourself like a human being.
    1 tbsp of whole grain dijon mustard
    2 dill pickles, minced. I like the dill pickles with garlic.
    1/8 cucumber, minced
    1 red onion, minced
    About 15 green olives, minced
    About 15 kalamata olives, pitted, minced
    a small handful of canned chipotle peppers, minced (for smokiness, which hides the fishy smell, and heat)
    Spices: a pinch of cumin, a healthy pinch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, a pinch of garlic, and that's it.
    a healthy bunch of fresh chopped basil, rough chop will do to let out the oils out of the leaves
    Sometimes, I mix in feta cheese (I prefer macedonian style feta because the creaminess blends well in a tuna salad, but to each their own). Sometimes, I eschew the macedonian feta, and put in crumbled up bacon (which I always have on hand in the kitchen at home. Bacon goes well with any fish).

I usually just mix this and eat it as-is. Quite tasty. I know it flies in the face of the concept of bodybuilding tuna (cheap and easy), but I'm done eating cheap, easy food. I like food to taste good, and it should be an experience.

Try it. I think you'll like it.

So easy to carry around when working, just carry a plastic spoon with you, and your good to go.

That's the thing..

For those of us who work in an office setting, it's difficult to avoid the dreaded vending machine, especially when you have one on every floor and next to every elevator.

I sometimes like to work through my lunch and pull out a quick meal (sometimes a protein shake, other times some polly-o string cheese or any other food item that has little to no carbs and is heavy in protein etc..), but the catch is how to make those small meals tasty enough to want to eat them after a long morning.

I will try this recipe tomorrow and will give the other recipes a try as well.

Thank you.

You find that the yellow mustard does a better job than the mayo?

For those bodybuilders that believe in eating tuna fish for a quick meal at home, what's your recipe?

I've often heard that a little mayo, salt, pepper and oregano goes a long way, but what's your technique for tasty tuna fish?

The purpose is to be able to prepare tasty tuna fish that can be eaten out of the can with no bread.

I eat it raw out of the pouch with crackers.

Anyone who uses light mayo or fake mayo like miracle whip should be sterilized.


i agree with this.

I make my own mayo....fresh egg yolks, salt, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary.

pour some salsa on top, while in the can. Then eat it.

Good call.  Homemade salsa so the freshness offsets the whole 2 year old dead fish in a tin thing, and you know there's no sugar or HFCS.


If you want to be extra spartan, straight tuna and water with sweet & sour pickles onna side.

Adding fat negates the point of doing the tuna thing as a dieter.  Making tuna yummy with fats requires so much that those same fat calories could be used to greater effect, in lesser amount, in another meal.  How can you keep a straight face saying "I'm on a diet" while spooning mayo into food?

2 can drained tuna
1/4 or less cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice

add fresh Thai chili for a real kick

Pour it all into a non stick frying pan stir until fully mixed and steaming hot. Best served with fresh jasmine rice.

I like hot sauce or some kind of wing sauce on it. No mayo because of the fat content.

Buy mine already flavoured, beautiful on some rice crackers!


I've yet to see that brand at my local market.  Next time I go, I will take a closer look and see if they have it in stock.

I have been going to the grocery store since before I could walk and this type of product is not available here.

Edit: It may be in an "Epicurean" style store.

Get solid white albacore (blue can). Mix in pinch salt/pepper,Dijon mustard,sugar free sweet relish, and the omega 3 low fat mayo. That's the best

Healthier less taste put soy sauce and wasabi in a small bowl, eat it like sushi. Add sushi rice on the Side if you want carbs to

Once you eat the blue can you will never want the green can again... Green can is crap, blue can is the quality cuts of fish worth the extra few cents a can
