Tuna From Can To Frying Pan

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes depending on the size of the broccoli florets. Remove the broccoli to a serving bowl and toss with butter, add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat the tuna, teriyaki sauce, and garlic powder in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir until the tuna has heated through, about 5 minutes. Pour the tuna over the broccoli and serve.

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)!

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!

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.
