Sautéd Tuna

Published by under Seafood

Growing up in the coastal region of India, seafood was a staple in our house. However in the monsoons when the fishermen docked their boats and stayed home, we had to do with canned seafood (if you are lucky enough to get it). This is a recipe my mom used to make with canned tuna. It can be easily adapted to use any kind of canned fish.

Use your imagination to flavor the canned tuna. Since I am making it in the Indian style, I am going to be using curry powder. If you would like to make a Thai version of this, use some red curry paste with a dash of coconut milk and fish sauce. For Italian, use some hot pepper flakes, capers and some Italian seasoning. You can even just use good ol’ salt and pepper.

Sautéd Tuna
2 6 oz cans of tuna, drained and flaked
1 medium onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
3 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tsp curry powder
1 Tbsp canola/olive oil
salt & pepper
Cilantro to garnish

Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes. Then add the sliced bell peppers, salt and pepper. Cook the onions and peppers until they are almost tender (about 10 minutes). Add the tuna, the scallions and the curry powder. Stir and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro.
