"This was something experimental that I came up with the other night because I was hungry and had a can of tuna leftover from lunch. This is something that you can also experiment with and tweak it to fit your personal tastes, it's great when you're in a time crunch."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I tried this against my better judgment since the thought of tuna and broccoli sounded so weird to me. This was awesome and so quick for a weekday meal. Served with a side of steamed rice and it was perfect!
The teriyaki and tuna just don't mix. Not very good
I did not have any teriyaki sauce so I used a lil worschester and balsamic. And I baked broccoli and cauliflower and topped with the tuna. Was delicious!
this was tooo good! I googled "tuna recipe", took a chance and rolled the dice... it was really great. a nice variation would be to add some peanuts, just for texture, but it's good just the way it is!
GREAT recipe! We made it for lunch today and my picky 2 1/2 year old even scarfed it down! It was indeed super quick. I did use cheese on the broccoli instead of butter and seasoning and I put less teryaki in (little over 1/2 tsp). I will probably use more broccoli next time too. I wish I had made 4 servings instead of 2 because I was still hungry when I was finished. We served it with fresh red grapes which were the perfect pair. This dish itself was even good after it got cold. I'm definitely making this again and might even add teryaki to some of the other tuna recipes I have... it just tastes so good (even if you aren't a big tuna eater)!
This had a lot of flavor and was very easy to make! Thanks for the great idea. I did not add salt because the teriyaki sauce made it salty enough.
You know, we actually liked this! I guess I had low expectations because of what was in it, but I didn't have a lot of time last night and only a few things on hand so I through this together. I added sriracha sauce to the tuna, and roasted some garlic with the broccoli, but all in all we both gave it a thumbs up!
I had rice and broccoli, and wanted to add a protein. Had no chicken or beef, only canned tuna. I always wondered if you could fry canned tuna (and have it taste anything like tuna steaks on the grill), so I googled "frying canned tuna," and this came up. I didn't have teriyaki, so I used a soy sauce/honey BBQ sauce combo (hoping for a Japanese/Sushi taste). I kept cooking the tuna and tasting it, and eventually, lo and behold, it DID taste somewhat like tuna steaks. I also added a little vegetable oil to the cooking tuna because it was getting too dry. As someone else mentioned, I think it definitely helped to cook the tuna for a while (maybe 8+ mins for me), to get rid of the "canned tuna" taste.
When I was done, I put the tuna over rice and broccoli, and it was quite good. I added a little more soy sauce/honey BBQ mix on top because I'm a bit of a sauce freak. Honestly, if I had tuna steaks cooked on the grill and chopped them up and put over rice and broccoli, it would have tasted similar to this. Of course the steaks would be better, but what do you want for canned tuna? Super cheap, super easy meal with a Japanese flair depending on how you prepare it. Don't be scared; it's worth a try. Plus if you don't like it, it's not like you'll be wasting a ton of time or money on ingredients. :)
