Because I am not a fan of seafood, I pick my fish wisely. This tuna and sardines are a quick and easy way to get fish in my cooking with less of the fishy business. Want to know more about why I am not a fish fan? Feel free to read all about it. This stew reminds me of my secondary school home economics final exams. I made a sauce/stew similar to this. But my exam Stew was made with canned sardines which I Served with rice and plantains and it was Yum!!! The two recipes are basically the same but the tuna fish recipe we are making today works better with yams because of the texture of tuna fish. If the fact that I am not a fan of fish didn't stop me from enjoying this stew with my white gold ( the yam o), then everyone would love this Tuna Stew. There isn't really much to say about this tuna stew besides its delicious flavor profile so lets get started.
