Chili con tuna?

Fish, Spicy

This has been my dinner for the last two nights, it has very honestly been the result of a cupboard raid based on my lack of shopping!

It’s a typical chili dip with homemade tortillas but I lacked mince 

  and so opted for Tuna. Why not right?

Why not indeed. It was utterly delicious and presented a big punch of Protien!

Next time you do a chili, try the tuna!!!!

Dog treats, Uncategorized

I love to cook for me and Gav but I also like whipping up treats for my huge pooch, Gray (Alaskan malamute).

I recently made these cookies.

  

  • Grated carrots 
  • Tuna
  • Flour
  • Wheat germ
  • Eggs

All mixed up, shaped, baked and tah dah!

Healthy and tasty

  

Vitello Tonnato burger

Burger book, Cook book, Food, Food general

Probably the most “real” cooking I’ve done all week!

I’m not sure why my kitchen activities have been so lazy this week but they have. Yesterday however normal service resumed and I whipped up this little bad boy!

Homemade focaccia? Yes

Homemade veal burgers? Yes

Homemade sauces? You get the picture!!

  
I did have questions over the Tuna and caper sauce. It seems a little odd right? Especially with the veal? I even told the Jones that I would put the sauce on the side just in case it wasn’t palatable but actually it tasted so delicious that I made an exec decision and put it straight I the burgers!

  
The focaccia bread base was a nice break from the usual top and bottom bun. The burger itself was moist and tasty and the addition of the salad and sauce made it a rather grown up burger.

I would highly recommend you try this dish. If you didn’t make the bread it would also be a very fast dish to prepare…very little cooking involved!

Fat Tuna

Fish, Gridling

I rarely eat Tuna steaks. My partner doesn’t like canned tuna and so is fearful of the whole tuna scene!

  But he is away and so last night I hashed up this unexpected delight! 

  • Tuna steak
  • Carrot
  • Cabbage
  • Soy sauce
  • Plum sauce
  • Lemon
  • Olive oil
  • Seasoning

Really simple, just:

  1. Shred the carrot and cabbage. Pop it in a hot wok with the soy sauce and plum sauce.
  2. Whilst that’s frying, cover the tuna in oil and lemon. Pop it on a griddle pan for 2-3 minutes each side.
  3. Serve with a smidge of seasoning

My Tuna was soo fat that it didn’t cook right through but actually that was really rather nice. Despite the chubby Tuna it resulted in being a quite refreshing dish with a subtle sweet taste. Healthy to boot!
