Easy Tuna Fish Salad Recipe

Hi everyone.
Today´s post is a mayonaise tuna fish salad I cook once a week. I do it often because it´s a good way to eat canned fish, which has benefic Omega 3, and it´s very easy to do. Sometimes, instead of tuna I use "Cavalas" or Sardines.


~ 1 Cup of spirals pasta
~ 2 eggs
~ 1 Cup sweet corn
~ 2 Cans of Tuna in olive oil
~ Delicias do Mar (Processed Seafood)
~ Mayonaise


Cook the pasta in salted water for 8/10 minutes. At the same time, boil the eggs and cook the sweet corn. Instead, you can use a pre-cooked corn can.
Chop the eggs or use a slice maker and do the same to "delícias do mar", which is an optional ingredient. You can replace it by another vegetable like carrots.
In a salad bowl mix all ingredients, season and it´s ready to serve 2/3 persons.

Bom Apetite!

My Mother was told by her doctor that canned tuna has no omega 3 in it - the canning process removes it. I am not sure whether this is true or not.

The recipe looks nice though!

Hi. Thanks all for visiting.

Rose: Nice to meet you too!
Greek food is the best of Mediterranean diet, very similar to Portuguese food.
I like cake decorating too, but I´m not very talented. Thanks for dropping cards too. Cheers.

My bug life: Me and my daughter love this salad, we did it again today. xx

Rachel: I´m not sure either but if caned fruit doesn´t remove all vitamins from fruits why should it remove Omega 3 from tuna. Good question to investigate.
