Things to do with Tuna
As to tuna salad: try added a few walnuts and some chopped red onion (a
few carbohydrates there, but not many) with your usual gobs of mayonnaise,
and/or some chopped celery.
I also like tuna salad with mayonnaise, chopped red onion and chopped fresh
cilantro (use lots of it! the dry stuff just doesn't compare). Another
great spice to try is dill weed (fresh or dry) in with the mayonnaise,
onion and celery (this is my usual combo now, I never get sick of it, and
you can use the dill on any fish to great effect).
You can mix a can of tuna with some crushed pork rinds and a beaten egg,
form into patties and gently fry them up in some olive oil for a dinner
main course. Add spices (as above), or use grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
instead of or in addition to the pork rinds.
How about a tuna melt? Top a couple of Wasa fiber rye crackers with some
tuna (salad or just plain with mayonnaise to hold it together) and then
place some thinly sliced cheddar cheese on top - put it under the broiler
until the cheese is melted, and enjoy! A few sprigs of fresh cilantro really
spice this one up.
How about tuna and some freshly made salsa (not too much – tomatoes plus
onions do have a few carbohydrates) on the side - or make the tuna patties
as above quite plain and top with salsa and a little sour cream for a treat.
I frequently make my tuna salad with some crumbled feta and season it with
Cavender's Greek seasoning.
I do tuna casserole with cauliflower and rather cheesy cheese sauce.
It might be too carby for Atkins induction. Oh yeah, partially cook the
cauliflower before assembling the casserole, and drain it thoroughly.
