One of the classic mom dishes going back into at least the fifties is the good old tuna noodle casserole. Moms have been making this for generations of unsuspecting kids in an attempt to get them to eat fish I surmise none the less some of these were questionable at best, others ok, and a few like the following recipe just downright it didn’t matter that there was fish in it – it was good. One of the ways to get kids to eat tuna casserole is to make sure it has cheese in it this is a big way toward faking them out that it is mac and cheese.
Another way to make a big improvement to the standard tuna casserole is most people use the chunk light tuna which is a lower grade. Because it is much cheaper than solid white, but there is a huge difference in the quality and fishiness taste of the two. Solid white is so much better it is like any other meat you usually benefit in the quality department and the taste department upgrading the meat you use in your recipes. Now this isn’t always the case. Sometimes like when using it in your crockpot the cheaper meat can actually be better because the fat content lends better to the slow cooking process.
If you want to make one big change in your recipes and improve the overall response you get to your cooking in general upgrade your ingredients to a better grade of almost anything. The same can be said for the difference between many generic brands and a name brand and in fact some name brands I insist on because the level of quality is far superior to that of a generic where the quality control isn’t always as good. Now if you are on a budget and who isn’t these days one of the things you can do is search out new source of product in your area in mine we have a meat wholesaler that has a store in its plant and the prices and quality of meat are far better than that of any of our supermarkets so for less money I can buy better grades of meat.

Tuna goes beautifully with Asian flavors, and most people have tried tuna with soy sauce, sesame seeds, or another oriental flavoring, but what about wasabi? Although this condiment is often shunned for being too fiery, it has an unusual flavor and you can combine it with other ingredients to make something less potent but still delicious.
Wasabi is similar to mustard, in that it can burn your nasal passages. The heat from chilies is experienced on your tongue, in your mouth and at the back of your throat instead, so they are spicy in a different way. Wasabi is similar-tasting to horseradish although not from the same family, and in the following recipe it is combined with soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, oil, fish sauce and lime juice to make a piquant and tasty vinaigrette which is great drizzled over your hot grilled tuna.
As for the tuna, it is best to choose sushi-grade fish, since ahi tuna is seared on the outside but practically raw in the center. This is not the cheapest fish you can buy but it is worth it, to make a special meal. The tuna is flavored with coriander seeds and black pepper (use white pepper if you want) and then seared all over, so when you cut it you can see the outside is cooked and the middle is not.
