Steamed Tuna

Denise.Belfon's picture
Steamed' in Bahamian food isn't done with water. Instead it is when food is seasoned with onion, green pepper, and either tomato paste or ketchup. This is a great Bahamian recipe using canned tuna. Great with white rice.
Ingredients
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Green bell pepper 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), thinly sliced
  Onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), thinly sliced
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), chopped
  Seasoned salt 1 Teaspoon
  Dried rosemary 2 Teaspoon
  Ketchup 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Canned tune 18 Ounce, drained
Directions

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic; cook and stir until limp. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the seasoned salt, rosemary and ketchup. Simmer, stirring constantly, until slightly brown. Mix in the tuna, and cook for about 5 more minutes to blend the flavors before serving.
