Competition for Seafood Week and a quick recipe idea

img_2081

Today I have a very exciting competition to share with you!

I’ve been challenged by the lovely folk over at Seafish and Fish is the Dish to create a recipe with tuna using 5 or less ingredients as part of Seafood Week– a week in which Seafish are challenging everyone to try and eat more fish. Despite perceptions, no matter the budget, time or location, seafood is always a healthy, delicious and simple option.

I eat fish most weeks for lunch or dinner options. Working from home means that I need something quick and simple to make so that I don’t take too much time out of my day. One of my go to favourites for lunch is a tuna salad. It’s such a quick and easy meal to make. I like that the recipe can be switched up with such ease, you can use up any salad ingredients that you have in the house. It’s also cheap and cheerful and only takes 5 minutes to make.

Here’s how I make mine. 

Ingredients: 

– Tuna
– Tomatoes
– Mixed salad
– Beetroot
– Butter beans

Method:

Fill a big bowl with mixed salad leaves
Add in a tin of tuna
Add half a tin of butter beans
Chop the tomatoes and beetroot and add them into the bowl
Toss the salad and garnish. I use, olives, salt and chilli flakes and olive oil.

Don’t forget that there are no rules, you can totally customise your tuna salad with ingredients you love. If you don’t like beetroot then swap it out for something else. I think celery works well in this salad because it gives a good crunchy texture.

I was pleased to learn that there are a lot of health benefits to eating fish due to their high omega-3 content. Our bodies don’t create omega-3 naturally so including at least 2 fish based meals a week is highly beneficial. I like to have tuna at least once a week as well as salmon for an evening meal. Omega-3 is very good for your heart and helps to maintain normal blood pressure.

You can learn more with Fish Is The Dish, it’s really quite interesting. I think it’s important to always continue learning about how we can eat and live a healthier life.
