The Ingredient Swap That Will Majorly Upgrade Your Canned Tuna
By JULIA MULLANEY
A store-bought can of tuna is not only affordable but also filled with plenty of protein and nutrients like iron, potassium, and vitamin B6. Combing it with mayonnaise and other seasonings creates a tuna salad, which, when put on a roll with lettuce, tomato, and onion, is a popular sandwich option — but there’s one little trick that can quickly level up your canned tuna.
Adding garlic powder to canned tuna, or even crushing a clove and mixing it in, cannot get you the desired flavor, as heat and olive oil both play roles in this flavor combination. However, you can make the garlic's flavor fully infuse into the fish by sautéing (cooking something quickly in a bit of fat) it in "garlicky olive oil," as opposed to mixing it with the classic mayonnaise choice.
Tuna is often served on bread, and everyone knows that garlic and bread pair well together, too — so inviting all three into your meal may well enhance the flavors. The best part is that this meal cooks quickly and sounds pretty affordable.
