    Tuna Juice Salad Dressing or Marinade

    I'm not a fan of tuna, nor of the juice however it is an economical option if you're on a budget.

    I suppose you could use the juice to make a salad dressing or even a marinade for Tuna steaks.

    Just add oil if needed, a little lemon juice and your favorite herbs or seasonings, maybe even some capers too.

    Good on you for trying to save it though...draining it does seem like a waste.

    Tuna fish juice

    Any suggestions appreciated. (I don't have pets, by the way.)


    I can't really use it for anything except a little flavor for my dogs food. The funniest thing I know to do with it, pour tuna juice in a ziplock bag . Freeze it and when someone makes you really mad, throw the tuna cube onto their doorstep. I did this to some nasty neighbors who sat on the doorstep heckeling everyone walking past. They stopped once it was stinky. Spoiled milk works too. Best part an ice cube has no fingerprints and they really don't know how the stink got there LOL

    changing the tuna

    Awk--I love tuna but I think it really stinks up the kitchen.
    However, the raccoons that adore my garbage disagree. I threw the rinsed out can in the recycling last night and about 11pm, two of them were doing a happy raccoon dance--batting the can between the two of them.

    My cat LOVES the tuna water. Everytime he hears me opening a can he comes running. Also, Target has web coupons for 0.50 off Starkist tuna. They do NOT specify size, can or pouch.

    Cat may actually get real tuna for dinner if this comes out cheaper than his regular can food.

    Is it okay to give so much salt to dogs and cats? The water tuna is packed in sure tastes salty to me.

    Hey, my mate buys expensive ramen noodles (Yes, there really is expensive ramen!) that has fish in it. Pewee! That stuff runs me out of the dining room. Maybe I could save the tuna water and cook cheap noodles in it for him.

    I pour ot over my cat's food. I don't buy cat's food. I give the cat our leftovers. She would eat even plain bread if I pour tuna juice on top.

    Great salad dressing idea. I have just mindlessly poured mine over the dog food bowl and hurriedly jumped out of their way as they try to knock me over to get to the dishes! I will try your idea the next time we do tuna!

    Perk, that's a great idea on the casserole. Now that my freezer is on the way I plan to stick casseroles in the freezer so the tip is timely. I do tuna salad sandwiches farily often, and those I don't want all wet. I like the salad dressing idea too.

    I love Tuna Casserole. The last time I opened a can of tuna my husband just stood there and "meowed". Isn't that just plain mean?!

    I think if you are using the tuna in a casseroll there is no reason you should drain it.. so why do I?

    hmm, I think I will skip it!

    I give it my cat as a treat... she loves it! Its the only time she sits in the kitchen and cries at my feet is when I open a can of tuna.
