Ingredients

Main Dish
  • 2 – 5oz cans Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna, drained
  • 1 cup Israeli couscous (pearl couscous)
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 2 cups water
  • Kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • ⅓ cup finely diced red pepper
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped cilantro
Dressing
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

Directions

In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and add couscous. Stir constantly to lightly ‘toast’ the couscous for 2 -3 minutes.

Add water to the pan to completely cover the couscous. Add a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and cook 7-8 minutes.

While it cooks, combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl, whisk well to combine and set aside.

When couscous is done, remove from heat, drain and put in a large mixing bowl. Add tuna, onion, pepper, cilantro and some dressing to taste – season with Kosher salt.
