The Absolute Best Way To Use A Can Of Tuna
Known for being the base of a famous lunch sandwich, canned tuna may be one of the most underrated shelf-stable cans in the grocery store. In addition to its ease of preparation and delicious taste, canned tuna is one of the leanest protein sources: each 3-ounce serving of tuna roughly has 25 grams of protein with only 110 calories, according to Healthline.
So, why not think outside of a tuna-salad sandwich and transform your canned tuna into tuna croquettes? Originating in France, croquettes can be created out of any vegetable, fruit, or protein — from potatoes to strawberries to canned tuna. All you’ll need to make them at home are eggs, bread crumbs, seasonings, herbs, vegetables, and of course, canned tuna.
The secret to making phenomenal croquettes is mixing cold ingredients, so that they hold their shape in a ball or oval, and letting them rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Be sure you also have plenty of breadcrumbs to generously coat your croquettes before frying, which doesn’t take long: two to four minutes should be enough. Your dinner party awaits!
