So how do you turn your canned Albacore into a tuna fish sandwich. What do you add, etc?
I just tried a recipe off the internet but it is dry and rather tasteless.

Open jar
Drain
Get fork
Taste test, and again, and again (arobics tempo here)
Now try some with salt and little pepper
Go pour a fresh cold beer
Oops forgot what tuna tasted like
Taste test again, and again, and again - just one more
Dump in bowl
Taste test again - you never know it might have changed
Flake up tuna real course
Add some REAL mayo a little salt, fresh ground pepper a little pickle relish some dry mustard (not very much just a pinch), or some diced Jalapeños, maybe some wassabi
Toast bagle
Taste test
Smear cream cheese on hot bagel - top with Tuna mixture

I guarantee that one pint jar will only make one sandwitch :food:

Point is try some different things till you find what you like. Other adds, hard boiled egg, potatoes, diced onion, sarachi hot sauce, grated medium aged white chedder. I never make it the same twice - cause I can never remember what I used.

Have some fun in the kitchen

Try adding in a little horseradish. MMM! :food: I like to add sweet pickle relish BEFORE adding the mayo. Then just add enough mayo to make it stick together. Makes the tuna salad less watery (if you actually have any leftover)

Pretty much like the others here, but I add a little mustard, 3x as much of the mayo, grated cheese, sweet relish, chopped up boiled egg, sweet relish, salt and pepper to taste and sliced french or sour dough bread.
Chips are great with it?:food:

I solemnly believe that the key to all sandwich or salad dressing is Worcestershire . That, and a touch of red pepper.

Try it!

I've stumbled onto an amazing recipe (trial and error). I don't really measure the ingredients, but this is a good estimate.

1 pint garlic canned tuna
3 tablespoons sweet relish
1 small handful of chopped pepperoncini (can sub onion - red, walla walla or green, depending on your mood, but I like the pepperoncini's.)
2 tablespoons A1 Tabasco steak sauce (secret ingredient)
As much Best Foods mayo as you like - about a cup for me

And the last secret - butter your bread on the inside.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cut a medium loin into 3/4 in medallions and marinate in Teriyaki, ginger, garlic for 15 minutes.

cook 1-2 minutes per side on hot BBq grill and cover with swiss cheese. Place on toasted, buttered hoagie bun.

Teriyaki Tuna sandwich! These things are a total delicious gut bomb!

My brother's recipe,

Step 1: Open jar
Step 2: Drain liquid
Step 3: Grab fork
Step 4: Forget the bread, eat TUNA! out of jar

I have to admit, there are many times I've taken a 1/2 pint of smoked TUNA! to work with the intentions of using it as a topping for my green salad. I end up eating the TUNA! and the salad goes untouched :grin:

Tuna, mayo, mustard, chopped dill pickles & a little pickle juice, sweet relish, chopped onion, chopped celery, salt, pepper and a few splashes of Crystal hot sauce. Other things to consider if you want to add are crumble hard boiled eggs, chopped olives, jalapenos and toasted almonds.

WOW!! So many options and ideas! Guess I'd better get some thawed and canned so I can try some of these ideas.
I may have to get on a tuna boat again to get more meat!
Thanks All.

OK, if no one else is going to share the secret, I guess I'll have to be the one. There are lots of great ideas above, but the "make or break" for me is wasabi. Mix it into the mayo or buy wasabi-mayo at Uagimaya. If you use real, fresh wasabi you'll be much happier than if you use the S&W fake stuff, made from toxic horseradish. (Bye the way, wasabi and butter on Dungeness is pretty special, too!)

Thanks, Pete
Being totally ignorant, I just checked out wasabi on Wikipedia. I doubt the real thing would be available in Grants Pass, so I may have to try the imitation. Flavored, colored, toxic (??) horseradish. I'll give it a try.

I did finally get a simple mixture that works well enough, thanks to all above. So I'm enjoying my tuna fish sandwiches. Wish I hadn't given most of the albacore away!!

Flake tuna, add finely chopped red onion and finely chopped celery.

Dressing:
Mayo
Lots of dried dill weed
lemon juice
salt and pepper

Mix with wire whip. Then add to tuna and veggies. You can add more mayo to desired consistency. Good on english muffin topped with pepperjack cheese and melted!
