Tuna is always plentiful and one of the cheapest fish dishes you can make. This week’s recipe is just so simple and you use one tin of tuna (less than 40 baht), and even sandwich tuna is fine. All other ingredients are freely available and you probably have them already in your own kitchen. It is a nice way to “dress-up” the humble Tuna and makes a filling and savory dish.
|Tuna fish (drained)
|Butter or margarine
|Ground black pepper as garnish
In a pan, over a medium heat, melt the butter or margarine, and then blend in the flour slowly, adding the salt and pepper. Blending slowly avoids lumps in the sauce. Mix until smooth. Gradually stir in the milk and heat while stirring constantly. Continue to heat until the mixture boils and thickens, but do not over-boil. To this white sauce, add the drained tuna fish and stir until well mixed and thoroughly heated. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or even toast along with vegetables if desired and then a decent whirl with the pepper grinder.
