Chicken of the Sea? I actually had not seen the can yet on my shelves, so when Jazmine contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying I said sure. Now, let me tell you, Grumpy is the tuna fan in our house. Much more so than me. I have never cared for Tuna Casserole but he loves it. So, when he gets it, it is a real treat for him. Kind of like his meaty lasagna. I guess that's just the price you pay for not being the cook sometimes. ;)
I received 2 cans of tuna from Chicken of the Sea. One regular can of tuna (which I have not used yet and am still not sure what I'm doing....the jury is still out on that one), and another can of Thai Chili flavored. I was surprised by the flavored tuna. I had not seen that before either. Am I living in the dark ages or what?! I decided that I was going to make something with the Thai Chili Tuna as that is the one that appealed to me most with the flavors of spicy Thai singing in my mouth being a favorite. The tuna itself has just a little hit of heat. I decided to give it more, and what is better that that heat than a little bit of sweet? Of course, I have to have the crunch, so I took the Challah bread Rose and I made and cut it up into smaller pieces to make myself some crostini to serve my tuna spread over. Voila, a perfect appetizer to set out for a gathering! You will surprise your friends that your serving them flavored tuna! ;)
I don't mind a tuna sandwich. That is, as long as I can stuff the sandwich full of crunchy ruffled potato chips. Something about tuna just says to me that it needs crunch texture to make me like eating it.
