Yes, canned tuna tends to be boring but not in this recipe! This recipe is perfect for lunch but it’s also a great lighter dinner option. I got this recipe from my health coach and I modified it a little. It’s a great option for those that don’t like sushi but like tuna and it’s a better option than eating a boring tuna fish sandwich, not putting down a great tuna sandwich but this is just a more fun way of eating tuna. This was one meal I ate frequent when I was doing my healthy detox program. I seriously couldn’t get enough of it and it was easy to make too. It is perfect for those who like to meal prep and high in protein because each stack contains 1 can of tuna.
For this recipe, I used canned solid white albacore tuna in water (5.4 ounce cans) and I also added furikake. If you’ve never heard of furikake, its a dried Japanese seasoning that is typically sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, and fish. It’s flaky, slightly salty and can most often be found in Asian stores or in the Asian section of the grocery store. I think it adds great flavor to food and has a little crunch due to the sesame seeds.
I’ve made this different ways depending on the ingredients I have on hand. For example, one day I didn’t have cucumbers so I used crunchy bell peppers. The wonderful thing about making your own food is that you can experiment and use ingredients that you like. Okay, let’s get started!
