This is another dish that you can cook with the humble Canned Tuna. I always use ‘Tuna in Springwater’. If you use ‘Tuna in Brine’, you need to alter the amount of Soy Sauce because the Tuna is salty. This can be an inexpensive and nutritious meal for anyone who likes Canned Tuna.
1/4 cup Dashi Stock OR Stock of your choice *OR Water
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 pinch Ground Chilli OR Chilli Flakes *optional
1/4 Onion *sliced
1/2 clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 can (95g) Tuna *drained
1/2 Spring Onion *diagonally sliced
1 large Egg *whisked
1 serving cooked Rice
- Place Dashi Stock (OR Stock of your choice), Soy Sauce and Mirin in a small frying pan or small saucepan. You may wish to add some Chilli for spiciness.
- Scatter Onion and Garlic, cover with a lid, and bring to the simmer over medium low heat.
- When Onion is soft, scatter Tuna and Spring Onion, pour whisked Egg evenly, cover with the lid, and cook until Egg is softly cooked.
- Half fill a bowl with warm cooked Rice, cover with the mixture, and enjoy.
I was wondering what to make for dinner today as we had only few things in the cupboard. Made this and it was very tasty!
Thank you for the comment, Aino. Canned Tuna in the pantry is a life saver to me. I’m glad you enjoyed this humble dish.
