    I hate the taste of tuna :mad:. The only way I could make it bareable was to add a slice of cheese + wrap it in a whole wheat tortilla and microwave it. Well, I decieded I want to have a leaner snack.

    I started pan frying tuna from a can.

    tuna w/ salt/pepper
    spoon of garlic
    handful of pickles
    a slice of onions
    some artichoke hearts
    some lemon juice.

    not great. It is a good change from the monotonay of what I usually eat, but I wouldnt serve it to anyone else.

    will try other recipes and post in this thread. I need to get my hands on some tomatoes :x:. Maybe yaki sauce?

    Anyone else pan fry their tuna from a can?

    I've found that hot sauce (frank's etc) makes canned tuna quite bearable

    buy a tuna steak, season, cook :yum:

    somehow reading f&n for all these years got me into a really retarded state of mind concerning cooking. just started learning actual techniques and how to properly season and use the right herbs/spices. incredible stuff compared to the shit i shoveled into my mouth before :embd:

    tuna steak and tuna from a can is a whole diff world of flavor

    also if it cutting avoid any type of frying with oil and look for pitabread or lavash instead of tortillas

    I used to get the cheapest tuna that I could buy (!$.89/can). They always reminded me of cat food. Recently, I've brought some better stuff (~$1.89) and it is way better. The consistency is more meaty and the taste is much better.

    Liquid smoke is a substance produced from smoke passed through water. Liquid smoke is used for both food preservation and flavouring. During production carcinogens can be removed from the smoke, which can make smoking significantly safer than traditional smoking.

    isn't everything a mixture of chemicals?

    wait, pita bread instead of tortilla?
    iirc, tortillas have fewer calories per 'loaf'? in bread, calories are primarily from carbs- a good source of energy, but if cutting, don't you want mostly protein?
    i could be totally wrong, I don't know the first thing about cutting. just my $.02

    Fat free (or low fat) mayo + spicy pickle relish for canned tuna works wonders. It's like having a bland tuna salad.

    never pan fried, but try some teriyaki sauce (just a little bit will be enough), sriracha, or pickles/relish

    Wait...u're pan frying canned tuna? Doesn't that shit stink up your kitchen??

    Just throw in mustard, pickles, onions, celery, garlic powder, sriacha, whatever. Those will usually crush the fishy taste.

    chile oil is a nice substitute for sriracha, and so is the garlic/pepper paste
