fish recipes
are great choice to start your day
with a plenty of food that taste tasty. You can use either fresh and raw tuna
or frozen tuna meats, but most people tend to use canned tuna fish because it
is easier to manage and almost every grocery store sold them. The simplest way
to taste a tuna is to make a simple tuna sandwich or tuna casseroles and we
believe you have certain memories of those tuna recipes when you were a little.

For your information, canned tuna fish
usually are sold with three different forms and they are in chunk, fancy or
solid pack, and grated or flaked. The most expensive out of the three forms
should be the solid pack because it contains large chunks of fish meat while
canned chuck tuna has smaller fishes inside and thus sold in lower price. As
for grated and flaked tuna, this type of tuna is very mushy and that’s why you
maybe do not want to try or even buy this tuna. Anyway, there are various types
of canned tuna that sold at grocery stores such as:
         
Yellowfin tuna: This tuna
usually labeled as light type of tuna on the cans and it has a bit stronger
flavor than albacore tuna. Light tuna itself consists of several other
different tunas as well.
         
Albacore tuna: Although the
mercury level of albacore tuna is higher than the other types of tuna, but this
tuna is the most expensive canned tuna compared with other types of tuna.
Albacore tuna is labeled as white tuna on the cans and it has mildest flavor
thus you may want to substitute it with chicken meats in the recipes sometime.
         
Bonita tuna: This tuna has the
highest fat content and strongest flavor and it is usually sold as canned
product. When you take a canned tuna at groceries store but you do not see any
labels like ‘white tuna’ nor ‘light tuna’ then it is highly possible the canned
tuna in your hand is skipjack tuna or bonita tuna.

mercury level in canned tuna fish and many people recommends that you need to
limit consume the tuna meats up to 2 cans per week. Canned tuna labeled as
light tuna has lower mercury level white tuna (albacore) and that’s why you need
