The benefits of using Tuna Fish for tuna canned recipes

A tuna fish sandwich is an excellent choice for lunch. A can of tuna fish is high in minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. Tuna is also a good source of vitamin B12.

How to make a tuna salad sandwich

The art of making any sandwich is selecting the right type of bread. Depending on the seafood and veggie sandwich, the bread can either be toasted or not toasted. You can choose homemade ciabatta bread, a French baguette, or simply a flatbread. All of these choices are great.

You can also choose to enjoy your cabbage and tuna salad with cassava bread – that’s another good choice and a double dose of crunchiness.

Here are a few tips for making the best tuna sandwich

  • Decide your choice of bread before starting the salad.
  • Choose either mayonnaise or yogurt or combine both to mix the cabbage and the tuna- to bind the ingredients.
  • Select your seasoning. I use my Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce with Herbs for flavor. I also use it because I don’t have to worry about adding any other types of seasoning. The other ingredient I may add is lemon juice – just a splash.
