How to Cook Cilantro & Lime Tuna Melts: Cupboard Cooking

Cilantro & Lime Tuna Melt - CookingWithKimberly.comToday is Day 3 of our One Month Grocery Shopping Strike.  This is what I made for lunch today using my “cupboard cooking” strategies.

I love tuna melts, but wanted to kick it up with an exotic flare…Enter: cilantro & lime!

Instead of making grilled cheese sandwiches, I decided to make a tuna melt open-face sandwich.

You make a basic tuna salad kicked up with cilantro & lime and get it into the oven…

You could also use salmon as a great substitute for tuna, but I suggest using a more tart cheese such as chevre or a gorgonzola to cut the rich flavor of the salmon.

Type: Fish Recipe
Serve With: Soup as a side, if desired
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time:  4 min
Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 can tuna
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise – I use Polish style.
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cilantro – chopped
  • juice of 1/4 lime
  • 3 dashes cayenne pepper
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp sharp cheddar cheese – grated
  • 1 slice bread – I used my Moroccan Spice Bread today (so tasty).

Instructions:

  1. Combine all ingredients except cheese in bowl.
  2. Toast bread in toaster before piling tuna on evenly.
  3. Broil in oven or toaster oven for approximately 4 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  4. Slice in quarters and serve hot.

You will love this recipe – I do hope you try it out for yourself!
