Tuna sandwich

A tuna sandwich, also known as a tuna fish sandwich, is a sandwich made from canned tuna—usually made into a tuna salad by adding mayonnaise, and sometimes other ingredients such as celery or onion—as well as other common fruits and vegetables used to flavor sandwiches. Common variations include the tuna boat (served on a bun or roll) and the tuna melt (served with melted cheese). The more general term of tuna sandwich may also refer to cuisine utilizing filet of raw or cooked tuna, rather than canned tuna.

In the United States, 52% of canned tuna is used for sandwiches. The tuna sandwich has been called “the mainstay of almost everyone’s American childhood.

A tuna fish sandwich is usually made with canned tuna mixed with mayonnaise and other additions, such as chopped celery, pickles or pickle relish, hard-boiled eggs, onion, cucumber, sweetcorn, and/or black olives. Other recipes may use olive oil, Miracle Whip, salad cream, mustard, or yogurt, instead of or in addition to mayonnaise. The sandwich may be topped with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, bean sprouts, or avocado in any combination.

 

* A tuna melt has melted cheese on top of the tuna or on a tomato slice and is served on toasted bread.
* A tuna boat is a tuna fish sandwich served in a hot dog bun or long-split bread roll.

Tuna is a relatively high protein food and it is very high in omega-3 fatty acids. A sandwich made from 100 grams of tuna and two slices of toasted white bread has approximately 287 calories, 96 of which are from fat (10.5 grams fat). It also has 20 grams of protein and 27 grams of carbohydrates.

A larger, commercially prepared tuna fish sandwich has more calories than noted above, based on its serving size. A 6-inch Subway tuna sub of 238 grams has 480 calories, 210 of those from fat, 600 milligrams of sodium, and 20 grams of protein.

Too much salt………….

Over salted your soup or stew? Put in a potato, peeled, and the potato will absorb all the salt. It takes about 10 minutes.

Cornstarch, potato starch, and chickpea flour are a couple of pantry-friendly ways to thicken soups, stews, and sauces in the slow cooker. Just a tablespoon or two of any, added towards the end of cooking will thicken sauces especially well.

Preheat that Cast Iron Skillet…….

Preheat your cast iron skillet for the best cooking results. To ensure the quality of cooking and durability of the pan, always preheat. Despite its many benefits, these skillets heat slow. However, once it starts heating, it keeps heating. Heat it slowly, going from low to medium levels, letting the cast iron do its thing. And since the pan is excellent at emitting heat, you can cook the food over low-medium heat.

Dry Cast Iron Skillets on the stovetop………..

Don’t worry about drying a wet skillet with a towel, just place the skillet back on a burner on low heat. Allow it to sit until all moisture evaporates from the inside, the outside, and even on handles. Allow the skillet to cool before handling again.

Love them Peaches………

The bright tangy fruit is power-packed with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Peaches are high in dietary fiber and bring along a surfeit of vitamins and minerals like vitamin A, C, E and K, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium and a bit of protein. Peaches also help in boosting metabolism: As peaches contain flavonoids like catechins, they help in increasing metabolism. Improved metabolism also helps in burning calories and thus, in aiding weight loss.
