  • Cod - The meat of this fish is moist and flaky when cooked and is enjoyed particularly for having such a mild flavour.

  • Meatballs - Traditional meal usually made from ground meat rolled into small balls along with other ingredients to bind them.

About Tuna Fish:

Tinned tuna is a fantastic store-cupboard ingredient as you can use it to make so many meals, from salads to sandwich fillers, to sophisticated pasta sauces and creamy savoury bakes. Fresh tuna is also hugely versatile — you can serve it seared, as sushi, or cooked all the way through on the BBQ.

Fresh tuna steaks usually come without bones, although this may differ depending on your fishmonger so just ask if you are unsure. You'll get more flavour using tuna with the bones in, as the bones impart flavour during cooking, but this does make things a little more difficult when you come to eating the fish. If you want to cook your tuna without the bones, ask your fishmonger to remove them for you to make things easier.
