Affordable, Heart Healthy Tuna Recipes

May 10, 2011 · 0 comments

Tuna is a staple in my household.  In the freezer or in a can, it is an affordable and healthy protein to have on hand.  Whether it is for dinner or lunch, here are two of my favorite recipes.

Tuna Steaks with Fresh Avocado Summer Salsa

Last night for dinner, I made tuna steaks topped with avocado, grape tomatoes and red onion salsa with corn on the cobb.   This dinner took about 15 minutes to prepare and cook.  For a pound of frozen tuna steaks at Trader Joe’s, it costs less than $6.  An ear of corn these days costs less than 40 cents making this dinner the ultimate, affordable summer staple during the week.

Anti-Comfort Tuna Melt Recipe

Many days, I crave a good tuna melt.  Instead of my typical mustard and hummus recipe, I tried out a new tuna salad pairing.  

  • 2 Celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion, chopped
  • 1 TBSP Greek Yogurt (or Mayo)
  • 2 TBSP Relish
  • 1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
  • 2 cans No Salt Added Albacore Tuna (Packed in Water)

Combine all the ingredients and mix well!

For the tuna melt, I put about 1/2 cup of the tuna mixture on a slice of Ezekial bread.  Next I sliced up a Mini Babybel© Light and spread it out on top.  The Mini Babybel Light makes this tuna melt guilt-free!

Then I placed in my toaster oven on broil for 5-10 minutes.  You can leave yours in for as long as you want.  I like mine once it’s begun to brown a little.  Cut into 4 squares and enjoy like a slice of pizza!
