My all-time favorite is the classic Century Tuna Flakes in Oil. Now’s the perfect time to experiment after years of my “heat then eat” habit. Don’t worry, this won’t need a high level of cooking expertise. Even a kitchen noob like me received praises for trying this recipe.

By the way, this is only one of hundreds of recipes that you can cook using [canned] tuna. Check out two of my no-fail tuna recipes – Pasta Carbonara with Sausage and Tuna (a creamy carbonara recipe) or Clara Ole Cheesy Tuna Pesto (a pesto dish with a twist.) Tuna is also great for making sandwiches and salads. Plus, don’t forget that it’s a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Century Tuna Sisig Recipe

I’m the only one who enjoys spicy-hot food at home so I usually skip chopping the chili peppers. You may also add minced ginger and fresh ground pepper. Oh, if only there’s a sizzling plate available in the kitchen! Having said that, I might consider buying a pair of ’em plates for me and hubby.

I hope you enjoy [cooking and eating] this Century Tuna Sisig recipe. I look forward to hearing how it goes!

    This is interesting! I also have a version of this. the only difference is that I use the chili corned tuna instead of the flakes. I’m gonna try this one at home. 🙂
