"'Steamed' in Bahamian food isn't done with water. Instead it is when food is seasoned with onion, green pepper, and either tomato paste or ketchup. This is a great Bahamian recipe using canned tuna. Great with white rice."

I decided to try this for a change of pace and to use some canned tuna that was a little more strongly flavored than we like for sandwiches. As I was making it, I started having strong doubts that this could POSSIBLY be any good, and was already formulating possible scathing reviews in my mind! :P Imagine my surprise when I took the first forkful and it was actually GOOD! I used diluted tomato paste instead of ketchup, since I was out of ketchup, and it was fine; I also put it over some white rice. It was very easy to make. My only complaint is that the recipe vastly overestimates the amount of food that results...there's no way it makes enough for 6! I would double whatever the recipe calls for in order to feed the number you're shooting for, unless you're planning to serve it with several sides.
It tasted pretty much like tuna & ketchup. Not worth the ingredients in my opinion.
This was a really really easy and quick recipe. It's also pretty good, much better than I was expecting at first, actually. I did add some diced tomatoes as well, and served with white rice and a side salad. A reasonably healthy dinner done really quickly.
Great recipe for what I call a "supper saver", when you don't have many fresh ingredients in the house :)
I though it should be called Sweet and Sour Tuna, I found the title misleading. I added some vegetable stock and water/cornstarch mixture to give it some sauce.
I really enjoyed this dish. A simple and delicious entree. It also works very well with small macaroni pasta.
This came out great for a last minute dinner! I did not have dried rosemary. I added a few splashes of red wine vinegar to the ketchup. Served over brown rice!
It was a nice way to dress up canned tuna.
pretty good,especially considering amount of ingredients/time needed!
