Who doesn’t like canned tuna? It’s inexpensive, has a long shelf life, and is very easy to prepare, especially when we’re too tamad to cook anything elaborate. But there are also so many dishes you can whip up with this ingredient when you're feeling creative (and motivated) in the kitchen.
Of course, it starts with your pick of high-quality tuna, which is exactly what you’ll get with the new San Miguel Del Mar. It contains zero preservatives and extenders (100 percent pure tuna!) and comes in two variants: Tuna Chunks in Vegetable Oil and Tuna Chunks in Water.
Here are some of the "tuna-fied" ~*gourmet*~ dishes you can easily prepare from home:
1. Fresh Spring Rolls With Tuna
Looking for a quick and easy bite between meetings? This spring roll makes for a fresh yet filling lunch that’s loaded with protein and other nutrients. Simply toss in San Miguel Del Mar tuna chunks with hoisin sauce, add in some veggies, and wrap everything in rice paper. You can use cucumber, carrots, cilantro, and lettuce, or tweak the recipe by adding your fave greens.
2. Tuna And Corn Chowder
This chowder recipe will warm you right up, perfect for the upcoming amihan season. The best part: It’s so easy to make! Just sautee some onions in margarine, add diced potatoes, celery, and corn kernels, and stir in some broth and cream. Don’t forget to finish with the star ingredient—the San Miguel Del Mar Tuna Chunks in Oil will make this soup extra special.
3. Tuna Bruschetta
If you love fresh bites, you’ll definitely enjoy this fun new take on the classic bruschetta. It features the same ingredients—basil, tomato, and olive oil—topped with San Miguel Del Mar tuna chunks and cheese for a more filling twist. Feel free to toss in capers and store-bought pesto for added flavor. It makes for an IG-worthy appetizer or a light snack.
4. Tuna Thai Fish Cakes
What we love about these fish cakes is that they’re yummy on their own, but also make great ulam if you must have rice in your meal. To make them, just combine San Miguel Del Mar tuna chunks, chili sauce, green onions, basil, egg, and bread crumbs. Fry them in batches and serve hot with extra sriracha.
5. Tuna Caesar Salad
Hate how most salad recipes almost feel too light? Well, this dish contains pasta to get you through long hours at work. Simply mix San Miguel Del Mar tuna chunks with Caesar dressing and a portion of pasta, pour over a bed of lettuce, and top with your go-to garnishes. We love ours with tomatoes, croutons, and cheese!
