This ended up turning into—dare I say—a jaw-droppingly delicious meal! For one, it is me we are talking about here, and let's face it: I don't have a great track record for turning out good meals. Secondly, it's tuna fish from a can. So, that also didn't set my expectations high from the get-go. When it came time to try it, I was impressed! This is without a doubt, one of the best tuna (from a can) dishes I have had.
This is a great quick meal to double up on and have as a grab-and-go dish in the fridge. It's low-carb and high in protein, which makes it ideal for a post-workout meal especially if you're looking to maintain or gain muscle and drop fat.
I stored the spicy sauce in a separate container, and this delish dish tasted just as great the next day.
