Tuna Packed in Oil
Aimee HerringKitchenDaily and Gail Simmons show you how to use foods you already have in your pantry to make easy, tasty recipes.
While regular canned tuna will do, Gail Simmons give you reason to splurge a bit and buy the more expensive tuna packed in oil, due to the very different flavor and texture it gains from the oil. In this video, Gail gives three tuna favorites a gourmet update. Her White Bean and Tuna Salad with Celery and Lemon recipe needs only lemon juice and some seasoning to be well dressed; her Roasted Tomato and Sweet Onion Tuna Melts recipe is a step-up from the standard baked fare thanks to roasted tomatoes, Fontina cheese and a rustic loaf; and her Spaghetti with Tuna and Green Olive Pesto recipe has olives and walnut pieces in its richer-than-usual sauce.
