    Anyone have some recipes out there other then Hosen sauce and italian dressing, and pineapple marinade for on the grill. I prefer my tuna grilled not into broiling or sushi. I actually love sushi but do to my crohns the doctor says it is in my best interests not to eat sushi so there ya go. And has anyone tried making jerky out of YFT.

    I have some tail pieces that I want to make some jerky out of. I have had tuna jerky before just never made it.

    catfish.. there are several good tuna recipes.. I like to use a little soy and some crushed cascabel peppers..on a real hot grill. I tried to stirfry some the other day in a little oliveoil,soy, fresh garlic.. I cut the tuna in 1in wide strips.. and it was awesome.
    As far as jerky.. there was a thread on the 2coolfishing board about it.. I have never tried it but heard it was good.. I just started canning my tuna and I will never by starkist again..

    If you haven't already checked out foodnetwork.com and make a search for grilled tuna, it might be something to try. Last time I looked it was 276 recipies for tuna dishes. good luck Bruce

    I've been canning my tuna for about 3-4 years now and every time I give someone some I tell them it will make them throw rocks at Starkist and Charlie.....;)


    They usually agree...:rolleyes:

    Yeah.. I have been putting jalapenos in mine.. I need to make a run south and get some chili piquins... and try a batch with them.. It is so much better than commercial tuna.

    I can mine also, can't say i'll ever buy another can of the store bought. The store bought lacks the flavor of mine.

    Bret..... I haven't looked in a while but I usually have a bush or three growing here on my place. I'll look to see if I have some going and maybe I could send you some. Do you like the reds or greens? Or both?

    If not, I'm going to Progresso Monday. I'll never forget the time I chopped up a couple of them and threw them in some pinto beans I was cooking ......wrong!

    What size pressure cooker do you guys use for the canning. I never have canned tuna or any fish. I was looking on ebay and it seems the All American pressure cooker (cast aluminum) is the best. They have 24, 30, and 40 quart sizes. Do you guys just use the glass canning jars?

    I prefer to vacuum pack and grill it within 6 months, but I'm open to canning. I have four tuna trips planned before the end of the year. That means, with my luck, I might get to go on one of them.

    I use the same jars as for veggies, etc. I can tuna in either pint jars or 1/2 pint jars. The 24 qt would be way big enough. I use an old Sears 16 qt. that holds 7 pint jars and even more 1/2 pints. It needs a gauge because you have to make adjustments to keep the pressure at around 10 pounds.

    Glad to read you're finally getting the time to go out and fish!

    I use pint size jars and have two pressure cookers. I am not sure of the size of my biggest. It is fairly large. I can stack pint size jars (glass) inside of the cooker. Like Bret, I use peppers, olives or whatever I want to flavor the fish. I started canning my albacore I brought home from SD years ago. I need to get back in the swing of things and start doing it again.
