Tuna Tacos FAQs

Can I use another type of fish?

Sure! Other canned fish like sardines, salmon, or mackerel would work great in this recipe. Just toss them around a bit in a cast iron skillet and follow the direction above.

These tacos are very customizable and will rival any other canned fish recipes you are able to find.

Would a canned tuna taco recipe work with fresh vegetables?

Yes! You can really liven up your fish filling, by adding some shredded salad leaves like cabbage, lettuce, or even homemade coleslaw.

How could I used cooked vegetables in a tuna taco recipe?

If you are looking to up the veggie content in your tuna tacos, adding cooked vegetables to the filling is great idea.

To bulk up the fish filling, sauté some diced bell peppers, celery, thinly sliced carrots, or diced asparagus. Then add the fish.

Can I use something other than Mayo for tuna fish tacos?

If you are looking to keep it as close to the recipe as possible you could swap out the mayo for Greek yogurt, or if you are a little more open to variation try leaving it out entirely and using guacamole as a topping. If you wanted to go with an Asian fish tacos vibe, try whisking up a dressing made of soy, ginger, and chopped scallions.

How can I make canned tuna tacos spicier?

Unleash the chili peppers! Pickled jalapenos work really well with canned fish; or, sauté a finely chopped fresh habanero in the oil before you add the fish.
