English Muffin Tuna Melt

All I can say is, "Delish!"

Ingredients:

  • 1 (5 oz.) can albacore tuna in water, drained
  • 2 English muffins, split
  • 3 Tbsp. mayonnaise, or more to taste
  • Ad
  • 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. celery, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 very thin slices tomato
  • 1/4 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:

Preheat broiler.

Lightly toast the muffins on both sides.

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl. Top the muffin halves equally with the tuna mixture and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Swiss cheese. Top each with a tomato slice, then sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Sounds like a very tasty recipe. I would use canned salmon in place of the tuna. Sadly today our fish is not as good for you as it once was due to mercury. Canned salmon is not farm raised, no chemicals, no pollution to the environment.

Actually, Elsablue, farm raised salmon has 1/3 less the amount of mercury than the wild salmon used for canning does. Mercury has always occured naturally in the water and air so you can't completely avoid it no matter what the type of fish is including cod, lobster and even anchovies. You just need to be wise and know which fish has how much mercury and limit your fish intake each week.

And although albacore does contain more mercury than salmon it is still well within the safety zone as long as you limit it to about 6 oz a week. I do like the thought of switching for the flavor difference using salmon for this recipe though ;-)

I made this last night, My husband and I both loved it. Had to use canned tomatoes, as don't have any fresh, but didn't hurt a thing. Will fix this again and again.
