When you’re too busy to prepare a complicated meal, you opt for takeout.

It’s easy and delicious, and you don’t even have to wash dishes after. But sometimes, even fast food and all its choices can be too much.

Now, canned tuna is also a good alternative but did you know that you can make it better?

If you want to eat a home-cooked meal that is delicious and easy to make, we have discovered something.

Make Eat Home posted a video two years ago about a delicious canned tuna recipe that everyone would want to try.

Most of us just eat tuna out of the can, but this YouTube channel upgraded our tuna into something savory and will make you ask for a second serving.

Before we get into the recipe, let’s entice you with some benefits that we can enjoy by eating tuna.

Tuna isn’t just delicious; it’s also packed with health benefits that will make you want to eat it often.

Tuna is heart-friendly because it comprises omega-3 fatty acids. This helps reduce the cholesterol that’s building up in our arteries.

Tuna helps lower blood pressure because it’s rich in potassium. Omega-3 fatty acids and potassium, when combined, will have an anti-inflammatory effect on our cardiovascular system. These two can help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Tuna also prevents the risk of cancer by giving us antioxidants, which work great in fighting cancer cells.

Tuna also helps in improving your skin’s health with its Vitamin B complex. So, if you want glowy skin, add tuna to your regular diet.

Tuna, when eaten regularly can help improve the Immune System because it’s rich in manganese, zinc, vitamin C, and even selenium.

Who would have thought that tuna has so many benefits? Here’s the recipe that will make you appreciate tuna more.

When the oil is hot, add your minced garlic. Sauté until you smell its fragrance. Make sure not to burn the garlic.

Then, add the green onions and sauté for another 1 minute.

Once that is done, you can now add the tuna and fry for about 30 seconds (smells good already!)

Then, add the fish sauce and lemon juice

Add pepper to taste

Cook for another 2 minutes. This will allow the tuna to absorb the flavors of the seasonings.

Serve on top of steamed rice and enjoy!

Additional tip:

If you only have tuna in water, it would be better to drain the water from the tuna. Once the water is all drained, you can use one tablespoon of olive oil for the recipe.
