Hi guys! I know I’ve been away really long. And no, I’m not sitting on my laurels (I won best photo blog at the food bloggers association of India awards ;)… I’ve just been away attending to family emergencies. I’m back though with a whole new load of recipes that you’re gonna love!
I’m on one of my moody diets that call for loading protein into my system. My absolute favourite is Fish. I love prawns but as you know, anything delicious is unhealthy. So I opted for Tuna. I love this particular Tuna salad ‘coz its’ so simple and fresh! You can substitute any steamed or tinned fish for tuna. 5 minutes is all it takes, say whaaaaaaa!!!
Here’s what you need,
Don’t you have all these ingredients in your refrigerator right now?
I used tinned tuna in sunflower oil as I love the flavour. I recommend a tin that reads tuna CHUNKS and not FLAKES. Flakes are really boring… that reason isn’t good enough, you say?
Strain the oil, preserving a teaspoon for flavour. Add the tuna and the oil in a mixing bowl and break up the tuna with a fork.
I like mine chunky… you may think I’m lazy… well…
To finish or begin, add all the other ingredients and give it a good mix with that spoon!
I like my salad not tasting like a salad… if that makes any sense at all.
For friends, I’d throw in a few nachos and beers 🙂
Tuna salsa, oh I love it!
Quick and lonely lunch for me would mean Tuna salad slapped on lightly toasted baguette with some tomatoes and lettuce.
That’s a satisfying meal. It’s a great way to consume all the goodness with absolutely no compromise on taste.
Hope you guys try it.
Have a brilliant week.
