Tuna is a tasty and healthy protein that can be prepared in many ways. For example, you can make grilled tuna fillet, tuna burger, tuna salad, or even a casserole dish. To season this fish, try making a marinade, preparing a powdered seasoning, or preparing several recipes that incorporate canned tuna.
Method 1 of 3: Preparing a Tuna Marinade
Step 1. Prepare a soy-based marinade
Doing so will help flavor the tuna fillet and keep it moist during cooking. Mix, for example, 230 ml of soy sauce with 120 ml of lemon juice and two cloves of garlic in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Alternatively, you can place the ingredients inside an airtight bag
Step 2. Add tuna to marinade
After preparing the marinade, add the tuna to the bowl or plastic bag. Fully immerse the fish in the liquid so that all sides are seasoned.
Step 3. Refrigerate the tuna in the marinade
Place bowl or bag in refrigerator for 15 minutes to 4 hours. If you like, turn the tuna over once to coat both sides well with seasoning.
The tuna is now ready for cooking
Step 4. Try different marinade flavors
Tuna can be prepared with different types of marinade, for example with orange juice instead of lemon juice or teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce. Search online for a variety of mariana recipes and try them out until you find your favorite.
Method 2 of 3: Preparing a Powdered Seasoning
Step 1. Dry the tuna with a sheet of paper towels
This will help the spices penetrate better. Alternatively, if you're grilling the fillets, brush a little oil before adding the seasoning. Doing so will prevent tuna from sticking to the pan.
Step 2. Make a simple seasoning with salt and pepper
In a small bowl, mix a teaspoon of salt with 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. If you want a sharper flavor, use cayenne pepper or pepperoni flakes. Also try garlic powder or sea salt for extra flavor.
Step 3. Prepare a black tuna seasoning
You'll need paprika, oregano, thyme, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Mix everything in a bowl. Try the seasoning and adjust the amounts until you reach the desired flavor.
Search online for spice recipes or try using whatever condiments and herbs you have at home
Step 4. Season the tuna fish
To do this, sprinkle the seasoning onto a cutting board and press both sides of the tuna onto the seasoning. If you like, you can also sprinkle the seasoning directly onto the fillet on each side and rub it lightly by hand.
The tuna is now seasoned and ready for consumption

Step 1. Make a tuna salad
The most common way to eat canned tuna is to prepare a salad. Usually, all you have to do is mix the canned tuna with mayonnaise and some chopped vegetables or vegetables, such as carrots, chives, cucumbers or tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Tuna salad can be served as a filling for a sandwich or with a salad of leaves. It's a simple but tasty meal

Canned tuna is also used to make a hamburger, which you can eat with bread or on a plate, with tartar sauce and squeezed lemon.
