Tuna Salad Made From Fresh Tuna Steak

Tuna fish salad is quite popular on sandwiches. But try fresh tuna for a change- it is much more rich in nutritional value than canned tuna. Fresh tuna contains all of the 9 essential fatty acids, which canned tuna does not have. however both canned and fresh tuna are rich in protein. Omega fatty acids found in tuna fish are essential for vital organ function and improve immune system. Tuna is also a good choice when making a low cholesterol meal.


1 tuna steak
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup onion, chopped finely
salt and pepper

Fry your tuna steak on medium high heat in oil. I am using 3 small steaks (the end of the fish), but the amount is equivalent to 1 regular size piece. Make sure the tuna steak is cooked inside as well, and not seared.

Shred the tuna in your food processor. I also use the food processor to chop up the onions. Mix all together in a bowl: shredded tuna, chopped onions, mayo, salt and pepper. You might want to add more or less mayo, depending how you like it.

Goes well on sandwiches or crackers. In my opinion, tuna salad made from fresh tuna fish is much tastier.

An interesting read:


  1. Wow, this is a great idea! I will try it out.

  2. I will never eat canned tuna again. It was wonderful. Fried it in ghee and virgin organic coconut oil. Hubby is requesting this on a regular basis.
