A tuna recipe can deliver you a nutritious and healthy meal as well as a lot of flavor. The healthy part is due to Omega-3 which contains fatty acids essential to life and protect people against diseases. Also if you use canned tuna in your recipes and the product has been stored properly and the can isn’t damaged, it has a shelf life of at least four years. But the best part of tuna is its taste and its versatility, allowing you to prepare endless variations of delicious dishes.
