San Marino Corned Tuna Recipes


I was given several recipes during the Sarap at Home event yesterday.  The recipes featured San Marino Corned Tuna.  I tried one of the dishes and I found it to be delicious!  Let me share with you some of the recipes here in this post.

But before that, I wanted to let you know what I learned.   Apparently, corned tuna doesn’t have corn!  Corned tuna means the tuna is processed.  I’m still kinda confused though as anything that is put into a can is processed so it’s still a mystery to me.  A blogger pointed out that corned tuna has more salt than the normal canned tuna.  Well, I don’t really care much but this I can say, I like the taste of San Marino Corned Tuna.

I already asked my cook Lucy to try out the different recipes using San Marino Corned Tuna that we have right now in the house.  So I hope you find this useful too! 🙂
