    I mix tuna with sriracha sauce or franks red hot, diced jalapeños, diced onions on bread w/cheese and either baby spinach or iceberg lettuce.

    I just added olive oil to mine with a heap of red onions and green peppers (diced), salt and pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Put it in a sundried tomato tortilla.

    I used to buy plain water packed tuna... then I discovered Trader Joe's No Sodium Water Packed White Albacore Tuna...:love: the rest is History! White Tuna is a whole different animal.:tongue:

    But I am looking forward to the ideas others will be sharing on how they 'do their tuna up'.
    Tuna cakes (like crab cakes)!

    12 oz tuna in water
    2 large eggs
    celery/ onion chopped
    ole bay seasoning

    Mix together throw in the over for 30-45 min at 375. great flavor, LOVE THEM
    Tuna patties are where it's at. I don't have any clue what their calorie count is but here's what I do and it is delicious.

    Open and drain several cans of tuna, empty tuna into mixing bowl.
    Open a pack of saltines and start crushing them over the tuna and mixing them in.
    Add an egg or two depending on how much tuna/crackers you are making.
    Eventually you get this mixture that you can form into balls, this is what you're looking for

    Now heat up a non-stick pan and spray it with some no stick spray.
    Form a couple tuna patties and toss them in, browning them on each side.

    These things are super delicious solo or with some peach mango salsa. I usually make quite a few all at once and toss the rest in the fridge. They reheat pretty well!

    oh definitely going to try this one!!!
    Ahhh thanks for the tuna patty reminder.... Old Bay Seasoning and the crackers crunched up sound good... I think I'll mix the 2 recipes up and have a go at it!

    Tuna with Cottage Cheese sounds yummy as well... love the ideas others all share of their favorites!:drinker:

    Thanks Gang:flowerforyou:

    I tried the Albacore, and didn't like it. Too fishy tasting for me.

    Forget the mayo, mix your tuna with hummus or an avocado or both. I mix and spread over sliced tomatos and cucumbers.

    Silly as it sounds I love to add tuna to soups.
  • Drain your tuna and add salsa. Then put on a taco shell with some cheese and lettuce, even plain yogurt. Yum!

    They recently had this recipe on the blog for tuna mixed with avocado instead of mayonnaise. I haven't tried it yet but for what it's worth:

    Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes

    2 cans tuna, drained
    1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
    1 tablespoon diced onion
    1 tablespoon diced green bell pepper
    1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon
    3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 large tomatoes

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut a thin slice from the top of each tomato and scoop out most of the pulp leaving a thick shell so that the tomato will hold its shape. Invert on paper towel and set aside. Combine tuna, bread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, tarragon, olive oil, pepper and salt. Stuff each tomato with tuna salad mixture. Place in lightly sprayed pan and bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Garnish with tarragon as desired. Serves 4.
