    Ideas for Canned Tuna (and other canned meats, probably)!

    I stumbled on this website advertising all the different ways to eat canned Tuna, and while some recipes use bread/tortillas/pasta, most are totally primal or easily primalized.

    I appreciated this because canned tuna is a great source of quick and easy protein, but sometimes I stall on what to do with it. I hope you get some use of it like I did!

    I like to make my canned tuna or salmon Mediterranean style, drizzled with olive oil, with black olives and quartered artichoke hearts, and plenty of garlic. I try to mix it with about an equal amount of fresh spinach to make sort of a tuna salad, it is delicious.

    I used some today. I had a left over tomato shrimp soup but not enough for a full meal (about half a bowl).

    So I added a can of tuna, 2 tablespoon of homemade ketchup, 3 table spoons of spicy tomato and ginger sauce (for Indian recipes) + a few drops of Frank's Red Hot sauce. I mixed everything up in a saucepan it was actually pretty good.

    I had for lunch today, with a salad made with carrots and cabbage marinated overnight in creamed coconut and palm vinegar, with hot chili in the tuna!

    I added some spicy salsa to tuna packed in olive oil. Simple and yummy.

    great link, thanks.

    I had tuna for breakfast. Mixed it with grated courgette and spooned it into a halved bell pepper.

    Thanks for the link. The tuna avocado dip looks particularly delish.

    Pop a can of tuna (best is in olive oil) into a blender with a clove of garlic and squeeze of lemon juice. Puree into a nice dressing for salad:
