Who knew that a humble staple like a can of tuna could be transformed into such a snazzy lunch or brunch? The Asian flavor is subtle, making the fresh albacore tuna the star!

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the red onion, red bell pepper, peas, ginger, carrots, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir together, and then fold in the tuna.

  • In a small bowl, whisk the sesame oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, and Sriracha®. Pour over the tuna mixture and toss gently, trying not to break up the tuna.

  • Add a tablespoon of vinegar to a pan of lightly-salted water and bring it to a gentle simmer, not a hard boil (you'll see little bubbles in the pan). Crack each egg into a ramekin. Stir the water in a wide circle (like a whirlpool), and then slide in the egg; repeat for the second egg. Poach the eggs at a simmer for 4-5 minutes for soft yolks. Remove the poached eggs with a slotted spoon to a paper towel and allow to drain.

  • To serve, top half of an English muffin with half of the tuna mixture, place a poached egg on top, and then sprinkle with the chopped cilantro and black sesame seeds.

Cook's Notes:

Another nice topping on the poached egg would be a drizzle of light peanut sauce and some chopped peanuts. For a lower carb version, you also could eliminate the English muffin, serve the tuna mixture and poached egg over a base of fresh baby spinach leaves and thinly-sliced cucumbers.

Really nice flavours. I used left over salmon and turned out amazing. I also used a toasted bun as I didn t have any English muffins. This recipe has a lot of flavours. I would make again. Read More

First off, I omit the english muffin. This makes it a perfect recipe for losing weight and fits into my healthy/eating clean diet. I make a bottle of dressing using this recipe, and I prep all of the ingredients at the beginning of the week. This way all I have to do is cook an egg and combine the prepped ingredients for a fast, easy meal. I give it five stars because it checks all of the boxes for flavor, being quick, inexpensive and healthy. Read More

This is a tasty way to eat tuna! It has SO much flavor going on I didn't think to add salt. I did toast my English muffins first. I had a little too much liquid in the sauce -even after draining the tuna - so I think maybe another can of tuna may be needed. Read More
