Canned Seafood Doesn't Have to Be Boring

Canned Seafood Doesn't Have to Be Boring

It wasn't too long ago that we were rushing to the grocery stores to stock up on essentials or loading our carts online with our favorites from online food retailers like Pure Food Fish Market. The uncertainty of COVID-19 and recent stay at home orders led many of us to stock up on non-perishable foods like canned tuna and canned seafood that would hold us through these stay at home orders. 

After weeks of quarantine, many states have lifted their orders and begun to allow businesses and residents to return to some state of normalcy while still practicing social distancing caution. This is great news for local businesses and the economy overall but the big question is what do I do with all my canned seafood now? Some of you may be feeling like your natural response to hoard goods has left you with a stock of canned seafood that you'll probably never eat. 

If you're feeling this way, boy do we have good news for you! Say goodbye to the days of bland and boring tuna salad, or seafood salad, and say hello to creative, and crafty canned seafood recipes that will knock your socks and give you a new appreciation for what you once considered a pantry emergency staple. Follow Pure Food Fish Market as we cover 5 creative tuna salad recipes. 

Classic Tuna Salad Sandwich

We all know about the classic tuna salad sandwich as it may have been a staple meal in our lunch box as a kid or a quick and easy mid-day snack as an adult. Traditionally tuna salad is made of tuna, mayo, celery, mustard, and relish and is served between two slices of bread but you can elevate this old-time recipe by adding a dash of lemon juice, diced granny smith apples, Boston lettuce, and a toasted bread roll instead of bread slices. 

Smoked Salmon Tacos

We've all had a tasty chicken or steak taco before at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant that just absolutely lit our taste buds up. But good tacos aren’t only limited to authentic Tex-Mex restaurants you can also make an exceptional taco with the ingredients you have in your pantry already. The next time you have a taste for tacos grab that can of smoked salmon in your pantry along with diced avocados, tomatoes, onions, and your choice of hard or soft or hard shell tacos for a fun and tasty weeknight meal.

Tuna Melt

Tuna melts are a classic recipe with a gourmet twist. Grab a nice helping of classic tuna salad and spread over your choice of bread, toast, muffin, or croissant, and top with cheese and diced tomatoes. Place your tuna spread on a baking sheet in an oven preheated at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes and voila there you have it a beautiful gourmet tuna melt. 

Easy Crab Carbonara

This recipe may sound fancy and difficult but it's a quick and easy meal with ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and pantry. Boil a cup of noodles with a dash of salt, and sauté fresh veggies. Fry up some bacon, and toss in 4 egg yolks and 2 whole eggs and add in your canned crab meat and garnish with parsley and there you have easy no hassle crab carbonara. 

Stuffed Tuna Peppers

Stuffed bell peppers are a favorite in many households and make for an easy, simple, and healthy weeknight family night meal. Next time your craving stuffed bell peppers swap out the ground beef in place of canned tuna for a new flavor profile on a classic dish.
