“'Steamed' in Bahamian food isn't done with water. Instead it is when food is seasoned with onion, green pepper, and either tomato paste or ketchup. This is a great Bahamian recipe using canned tuna. Great with white rice.”

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic; cook and stir until limp. Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the seasoned salt, rosemary and ketchup. Simmer, stirring constantly, until slightly brown. Mix in the tuna, and cook for about 5 more minutes to blend the flavors before serving.

I decided to try this for a change of pace and to use some canned tuna that was a little more strongly flavored than we like for sandwiches. As I was making it, I started having strong doubts that this could POSSIBLY be any good, and was already formulating possible scathing reviews in my mind! :P Imagine my surprise when I took the first forkful and it was actually GOOD! I used diluted tomato paste instead of ketchup, since I was out of ketchup, and it was fine; I also put it over some white rice. It was very easy to make. My only complaint is that the recipe vastly overestimates the amount of food that results...there's no way it makes enough for 6! I would double whatever the recipe calls for in order to feed the number you're shooting for, unless you're planning to serve it with several sides.



It tasted pretty much like tuna & ketchup. Not worth the ingredients in my opinion.



This was a really really easy and quick recipe. It's also pretty good, much better than I was expecting at first, actually. I did add some diced tomatoes as well, and served with white rice and a side salad. A reasonably healthy dinner done really quickly.
