    As a bodybuilder I eat a lot of tuna straight from the can, I am not overly creative with what I mix in with it.

    My girlfriend made me up some tuna mixed in with salad cream and onion, that's very tasty!

    Anyone got any good tuna recipes?

    I usually make a tuna pasta, with capsicum, onion and garlic cut up very fine and mix in some tuna and low fat salad dressing / low fat mayo.

    I like the age old onion & tuna on toast one, thats OK. You could try buying those John West Tuna specials, they have one that's Sundried Tomato & Basil, it's very nice straight from the tin.

    I'm no fan of tuna to be honest, I love canned salmon though. Heaps of ways to eat it.

    just a suggestion

    1 medium can of tuna
    1 can of creamed corn
    grated cheese
    bread
    salt & pepper for tatse

    mix the tune and corn together, add salt & pepper, slop it onto a few slices of bread, top with cheese and grill it. That's what I used to do when I came home from school as an afternoon snack. Not very glamourous but it works for me :thumbup:

    Alternatively skip the bread and cheese and it the tuna and corn from the bowl

    My favourite way to eat tuna.. mmmm.
    Tuna Sandwich

    In a bowl:
    -can of tuna
    -finely chopped onion
    -shredded carrot
    -mayo
    Mix it all up.

    Then put it on a slice of bread.
    Top the sandwich with a few slices of tomato, cucumber and lettuce. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Can't go wrong.

    I just had a John West (i think) tuna with capsicum and oven-dried tomato.
    I rate it.

    I like a bit of parmesan cheese with plain tuna in olive oil, tastes great. Or, I'll mix lentils, parmesan and tuna together, heat it and eat that straight.
    Corriander also seems to go well with tuna, as does a small amount of onion.

    I was just about to say that. Tuna + mayo + finely chopped eshallot's {I think that's how you spell it, or spring onion, the long thin ones}

    this sounds pretty not so healthy but this is how i like to have my tuna.

    Tuna
    Continental Cottage Cheese (not cream cheese it doesnt work trust me)
    Touch of Parmesan.
    Bit of lime juice
    Pepper
    Salt
    Green Tobasco Sauce (u can use normal if u want)

    mix it all together and if its a little to gluggy use a touch of mayo to thin it out a bit.

    Put that on some nice rye or grain bread, with some lettuce and u have a nice sandwhich, or use some toasted bread top with again some lettuce a touch of grated cheese, throw it under the griller and u have an awesome tuna melt.

    not the healthiest but tastes pretty good.

    tuna...400g can
    mayo...couple of spoons - use it to get the consistancy right) (bestfoods if you can get it)
    mustard....teaspoon or so (keens) you just want the tang
    celery 1/2 cup chopped
    carrot 1/2 cup chopped
    dill pickle a couple chopped finely


    mix it up in a bowl - i use my wifes mixmaster

    spread it on the bread - very nice..

    I either use a cabonara sauce with pasta and capsicums/carrot or with some chilli based sauce and mixed frozen veg sliced & capsicums.
    It's nice on a sandwich with chilli sauce and salad as well
