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.

You don't add anything extra (relish, garlic, salt or pepper)??

I've even heard of people adding miracle whip..

Most important step is to buy high quality canned tuna

Here is one of my favorites: http://www.americantuna.com/

http://store.americantuna.com/americantuna-msccertified-no-saltaddednodraining.aspx

Open the can and dump all juices and tuna into a bowl and mix well and then pour in some good olive oil and salt/pepper.   You can get fancy and add other stuff but the basic oil,salt pepper is good

Mayo, salt, pepper, onion powder and celery seed/salt (if using celery salt, no need for salt).  Add your choice of chopped onions, green onions, cucumber, pickles...

Never considered hot sauce or raw spinach.

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

No wonder the lot of you suffer when you "diet", everything I have read so far is disgusting.  Straw Man, you need to consider completely draining the juice unless packed in olive oil.


Tonno is a good Tuna Brand.

If you are interested in doing a little work, I have some wonderful recipes that I use.

onemorerep, seriously now, i do it like this:

take a bread, hollow it out, as in i take the soft stuff out and only leave the crust, and then i fill that with tuna.


tastes great and i can get away with one of these galeniko style sandwiches every day even on diet when very lean.


Galeniko,

We are trying to keep the bread out of the equation and simply eat the tuna straight but with some decent flavoring.

Do you season your tuna at all?

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.

Mix an avocado with it instead of mayo.

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.

I'm in Australia, don't know if you can get them in the States, but greenseas aren't the only ones doing flavoured tuna now, it has really taken off, their are lots of different manufacturers doing them.  I get the 95g small tins, the flavouring definitely adds some calories, but they are a small enough size to be good for a snack without overdoing it.  The ones I get come with an easy pull-top lid that can be opened by hand and without a can opener.  So easy to carry around when working, just carry a plastic spoon with you, and your good to go.

Tonno is a good brand, especially their Ventresca

I would never drain the juices out because you're also throwing away all the Omega 3's.
The American tuna brand has no added water so the "water" is really the just liquid released when cooking and there is not very much and and when you mix it back in it helps make the tuna moist and you don't have to add as much olive oil

On the other hand, when packed in olive oil I would actually drain in a small colander and then add a bit of my own olive oil which is much higher quality than the stuff they pack it in

Edit: The brand I was thinking of is called Tonnino.
