1 can tunafish
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp celery, chopped
1 tsp capers
1/8 tsp dill
1/8 tsp black pepper
Drain the tunafish and put it into a bowl. Mix in all of the remaining ingredients. Serve as is or over lettuce. Enjoy!
Note that if you don't like mayonnaise, simply substitute a good olive oil instead. It's just as tasty!
The USDA recommends you eat at least 2 servings of fish a week because of the healthy Omega 3 oils they hold. More about Omega-3
This is a super easy recipe to have as an emergency dish because, besides the celery, everything else is stored in a jar and can have unopened jars stored on your pantry shelves. If you don't have celery, just leave that out - it tastes just as great. I also love substituting in olives rather than capers, it adds a different type of tangy flavor to the dish.
I have tuna at least once or twice a week. I work from home and work pretty much 24 hours a day. I don't like taking a lot of time for cooking. If I'm hungry and only have a few minutes to whip something together, this is *perfect*. The cats get a treat from the liquid, I get some healthy tuna, and I'm back to work in moments.
Other ideas to snazz this up a bit are to serve it on high fiber bread, and maybe add in some lettuce, cheese, or tomatoes.
