    I have 4 cans of the hellish stuff and no cat or enemies to give it to.
    The last time I used up the last can of tuna making tuna salad. So my gitlfriend in her ever-thoughtfulness (God bless her), thought I liked tuna so much that she better pick up more of it. :plain: I did not notice these 4 cans and questioned her about them. She said she bought them months ago. I politely thanked her and asked that these be the last of it, since she foesn't like it either.
    Please direct me or suggest some miracle recipe that turns a can of tuna into a gourmet meal. I will thank you. Humanity will thank you. :)

    Try it in a marinara sauce? Possibly with some other seafood, like shrimp? Probably want to go a bit spicy here.

    FWIW, a very fast and simple recipe I use is to cook a half a box of pasta (I use bowtie) and mix in a (drained) can of imported tuna in oil, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes. Then whatever else seems like a good add-in: tbsp capers, or chopped tomato, or garlic. This sure doesn't hide the flavor of the tuna though, so I'm guessing this won't work for you.

    Put it on pizza? It's quite popular in Spain like this and with enough cheese it should cover the taste

    Is the tuna canned in olive oil? Anyway, +1 on salade niçoise.
    You can make a dozen different pasta sauces. Or use it as a topping for pizza. Or...

    tuna empanadas. partly caramelized onions, a little white sauce and/or sharp melting cheese, and a little paprika.

    One of those fucked up dishes that Christian families serve their children with glasses of milk.

    Tuna and mayonnaise on butterfly crackers with an ice cold glass of milk. Heaven.

    I know of no Christian family (my own included) who employs this practice.

    At one time my god fearing mother had me believing this was a special occasion dish. I judged it quite tasty and something to look forward to and savor.

    FWIW, I am now a godless man and have not had tuna casserole since leaving the house as a teenager.

    She did it for the same reason the Christian do. To ward off Jews from stealing her children to use in our matzo.
