FYI- At nearly 40 grams of protein per can, tuna fish has all the essentials to be the perfect muscle building food. Tuna is low in fat, high in protein and an essential form of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps combat against heart disease and certain cancers and can lower cholesterol levels. Not to mention tuna fish can be used for a variety of meals, which makes it an easy choice for many. Try to keep your tuna in check though as consuming too much mercury (which can be found in tuna) has been linked to some health problem, mainly in young children and pregnant women.

  1. I created this recipe when I was going to school and had a budget for my food and I refused to eat junk food. Do not let this fool you because this dish is one of the most delicious tuna recipe you will ever encounter. I ate this twice a week for many years because it is healthy, and delicious on a budget. Now I still eat it often. SM
