A better tuna salad sandwich



Log in to see fewer ads
Sometimes it’s the simple things that make a big difference.

This recipe calls for Chub Mackerel in lieu of tuna. To me, canned tuna is beginning to look more like processed tuna paste. The Chub Mackerel is a can of real fish with skin and bones; all completely edible. In my opinion, it has a better texture and a stronger fish flavor for that "better tuna salad sandwich". Or more correctly, a Mackerel salad sandwich.

Ingredients:
15 oz can of Chicken of the Sea Chub Mackerel
3/4 cup sweet pickle relish
Medium sweet onion, diced
2 heaping Tbsp Mayonnaise
Dash of salt
Heavy sprinkle of pepper

@
Strain and drain the can of Mackerel. Place the Mackerel in a bowl and mash them up to desired texture.
Add 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish and incorporate into the mixture.
Add diced medium sweet onion and stir in.
Add 2 heaping Tablespoons of Mayonnaise, more or less to taste and stir well.
Add a dash of salt and a heavier sprinkling of pepper, and stir in.

@@
Lightly butter the bread slices and add the Mackerel mixture. The butter acts as prevention to a soggy sandwich.
Or place the Mackerel mixture in a bed of lettuce for a light lunch.

@@@
This is realistically two servings--if you can stop at one sammich.

My tidbits for thought:
Chub Mackerel, 15 oz, $2.19 (14 cents per ounce) Low in Mercury
A typical can of tuna;
White tuna, 5 oz, $1.36 (27 cents per ounce) Modest in Mercury
Fancier tuna;
Select albacore, 4.5 oz, $1.89 (42 cents per ounce) High in Mercury
Yellowfin tuna, 4.5 oz, $1.89 (42 cents per ounce) High in Mercury

Ole Shotgun Red seemed like such a down to earth kind of guy. I see him as that character at deer camp that would bring so much fun and laughter around the campfire. And you know we all would eat well too!

Hey, it's not MY recipe.


But even Shotgun Red said to feel free to make it your own.

The Holy Cross Sisters who ran St. John's Academy replaced the school cafeteria with Horn and Hardart style vending machines.

They offered tuna sandwiches and I love tuna sandwiches so I put in my quarters and opened the little door to receive my sandwich and took it to a lunch table.

One bite and---sweet dill pickles---I lost it. Puked all over my salt and pepper corduroy pants, green cardigan, white shirt narrowly missing my red bow tie due to the arc of the projectile.

No. Never again.

Dear Readers,

Forewarned is forearmed. That's two thumbs down for sweet pickle relish. I like it just fine, but apparently it's not for everyone.

Better Tuna is canned chicken!

I eat tuna sometimes but I don't really like it. I love chopped deviled egg and ham or chicken!

Find you some canned yellow eye tuna. Has much better flavor and texture.

Make my living off salmon, halibut, and cod. Have fresh or fresh frozen fish at my beck and call.... still buy yellow eye in the can. That's a statement, like a rancher telling you to buy chicken because it's so good.....

Indeed! Good bread makes a world of a difference.
Back when I used to travel abroad, I would always make it a point to search out fresh, local bread. It's hard to find that crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside, fresh bread here in the States. At least where I'm at. That's why I bake my own Hungarian bread. But alas, only in moderation, as it goes straight to my belly.

Wow, no one puts cheese in their sandwich . . .

. . . anything meat put inside bread in our household is automatically given a yellow crown ...

Quite a bit of water has been added into tuna and other canned meats. Draining the can is definitely recommended.
