Tuna Recipes for Lent.

Canned tuna is perhaps one of the most versatile ingredients I have cooked with ever. I'm sure most homecooks would agree. Aside from being shelf-stable, it's also budget-friendly, easy-to-find, and best of all, heart-healthy.

If you're a Catholic and a staunch follower of the 'Fish Friday' tradition, here are some tuna recipes that you might want to try. These are all made with San Miguel Del Mar Tuna, from one of the leading food companies in the country - San Miguel Foods.

1/3 cup MAGNOLIA REAL MAYONNAISE 
2 tsp chopped garlic 
6 pc small flour tortillas or pita bread, lightly warmed or toasted 
1/2 cup shredded lettuce leaves 
1/2 cup sliced cucumber 
1 (100 g) pc tomato, sliced 
1 (185 g) can SAN MIGUEL DEL MAR TUNA CHUNKS IN OIL, drained
