    Here's another one of those questions like the old cornbread question (with sugar or not).

    How do you like your tuna fish?

    I've seen dozens of combinations--from people who hate dill pickles to those who use Miracle Whip.

    Me, I use only albacore in water, fully drained, an egg, a small amount of onion, dill pickle, Hellman's Light Mayo, black pepper, celery salt and maybe a little dill.

    dip in sesame oil, coat with ground peppercorns, a little sea salt.


    sear quickly in peanut oil

    cut into strips, squeeze of lime on top of jasmine rice. :)








    oh, you mean from a can....;)


    Albacore. Whatever white stuff I have in the fridge (MW or Mayo or Veganaise) with diced dill pickles, pepper, a squeeze of mustard and lemon juice.

    Hmm an egg? Do you cook it? Please tell more.

    I agree:
    1: only albacore in water
    2: small amount of FINELY chopped red onion
    3: small amount of FINELY chopped or pressed garlic
    4: small amount of mustard
    5: mayo
    6: dill

    My wife makes tuna fish with:
    1: only albacore in water (now that I have converted her!) :)
    2: mayo (she used to use miracle whip - which is pretty good also)
    3: chopped pickle
    4: chopped cellery
    5: red wine vinegar
    6: a little splenda
    probably other stuff - I can't replicate her's nor do I try, we each have our own way of making it and we each enjoy how the other makes them!

    Occasionally we'll put some cheese slices on top and broil them!

    Albacore, mayo, onion, celery, and..... the kicker....
    a lil' Old Bay...
    That puts it over the edge...

    I make killer Tuna...

    It's always good to make it the day before you use it...
    It all comes together in the fridge overnight...

    Right On Mild Bill, except I only use Green Onions. The "OLD BAY" does kick it over the top.

    And is always better the next day......;a ;a ;a


    BTW, "OLD BAY" rocks Crab Salad also........;f

    It all sounds good but what about the mercury?
    That makes me back off from it on a regular basis.

    I use regular tuna packed in oil. Albacore in water, to me, is as dry as a popcorn fart in the desert.

    My put it over the top thing is celery salt. Old Bay is nice too.
    Ok, I'm hungry.

    Tuna fish in water, LOTS of chopped onions, chopped bell pepper, Miracle Whip, seasoned pepper, and some Hungarian Paprika :)

    I like mine with Provolone or Cheddar Cheese, on a nice soft roll.

    Right out of the can, with a fork. :)

    Seriously, I like tuna fish sandwiches with just bread, Miracle whip on the bread and a can of tuna piled in the middle.

    No Miracle Whip for me! ;0

    I like it with mayo, chopped green olives (you know, the traditional ones in the bottle) and lots of black pepper. I especially like the 9-lives brand.

    Albacore in water, a little mayo, maybe a little relish and a pinch of cayenne.


    I have a hard enough time trying to tuna piano, much less make a sammich.

    For me,
    It's "Starkist" chunk light tuna in water (drained) mixed w/
    - splash of lime juice
    - fresh ground pepper
    - a good sprinkling of grated Parm.cheese
    - 2 forkfuls of sweet relish
    - 1 forkful of "Blue Plate" mayo

    Served either on white or wheat bread, or no bread at all.

    Anybody ever try tuna cakes? Make them just like you would salmon cakes only with tuna. Also, I use instant mashed potato flakes instead of cornmeal and/or flour in both salmon and tuna cakes.
