Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter.
  2. In a large (I may use a medium size pot for this) non stick pan melt the 1/4 cup of butter then add the onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic for about 3 minutes, then sprinkle in the flour and mix and cook for another minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Slowly stir in the milk, then return to heat and stir until thickened and the mixture comes to a boil, season with salt and pepper to your liking, stir, then stir in the mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, and tuna, when mixed, add in the egg noodles and mix to combine.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth out, sprinkle on the breadcrumbs then Parmesan cheese, drizzle with the melted butter.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, remove and let rest 5 minutes, serve.
Recipe Notes

The Cheddar cheese is the most expensive part here, for 2 cups, think about 180 Baht. For 6 servings, this is about 88 cents per serving.

Instructions
  1. Cut fish into 1 inch cubes. Place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and transfer to freezer. Chill until very cold (it should feel firm but still give when pressed with your finger), about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sterilize all grinding parts (the stand mixer's grinding attachment, including the dies, or the bowl and blade of the food processor), rinse, dry, and place in the freezer until very cold, at least 15 minutes. Assemble grinder attachment with chilled coarse die. Set a bowl in a large bowl of ice, arrange beneath the attachment to catch ground tuna and keep it cold.
  3. Combine tuna, scallions, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl. Grind mixture in batches, with mixer on medium speed, and plunge gently to press through grinder. Add mayonnaise, grapeseed or olive oil, and toasted sesame oil to ground tuna mixture. Mix gently just to combine.
  4. Form into four 1/2 in thick patties. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired. Grill or pan fry burgers over medium heat until just cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Split and toast the rolls. Assemble with lettuce leaves on the bottom of the roll, top that with a tuna burger, then some tartar sauce, then sliced tomato. Top with the other half of the roll, enjoy.
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I get some fresh tuna, or catch my own.

  1. Mix rice, soy sauce, sesame oil and water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. When rice is cooked, mix in half of the tuna as well as the ginger powder, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds. Set aside.
  3. Fry the egg to your liking.
  4. After the egg is cooked, place the rice in a bowl, place the diced avocado on the side of the rice, and the rest of the tuna on another side, and top with the fried egg. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

An average can of tuna will cost about 44 Baht. For one serving this is about $1.29 for the serving. If you cook fresh tuna yourself, figure 68 Baht for a tuna from Tesco, easily makes 2 to 2 1/2 cups of tuna, then your cost for the tuna for this recipe, 1/2 cup, is 50 cents. Great savings and less waste. This is listed as low cost as fresh whole tuna is easy to get.

Absolutely delicious! I made this on 17 Jan 2017, very easy, very easy to tailor based on your preferences. And I make this often! The milk sauce is perfect. If making this for more than 2 people (even though listed as 4 servings) I would double this. Highly recommended. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then whisk in the flour, then whisk in the milk, whisk constantly to prevent lumps and stir until creamy. Add the tuna, peas, and salt and pepper to your taste and warm through.
  2. As the sauce is warming, toast your bread, figuring 1-2 slices per serving. I went with 4 slices of toast for me in this photo.
  3. When the bread is toasted and buttered, spoon the sauce over the toast and serve.
Recipe Notes

A standard can of tuna will cost about 42 Baht (I use Sealect brand). For 4 servings, this is about 31 cents per serving. If you use fresh tuna that you cooked yourself, you can reduce this even more and not have the added waste from the can.

Variant: Add a couple of fried eggs sunny side up on top.

Shortcut: Tuna.

  1. In a non-stick skillet, heat a good splash of olive oil with the ground cumin and ground coriander until they turn fragrant and start to foam. To this, add the onion and fry until the onion starts to soften. Add the minced garlic and chili and stir until the onion and garlic starts to brown.
  2. Add the drained tuna. Season with salt and black pepper. Stir to combine. Add the rice, tomatoes, chopped coriander, parsley and mint leaves, turn off the heat and toss until well-combined. Adjust the seasonings, add more black pepper (loads!) and the dish is ready to be served!
Recipe Notes

4 cans of tuna will cost you about 120 Baht, a fresh tuna that you buy whole will make about 3 cans of tuna for 68 Baht. I consider canned tuna prepared not processed (I need to make a post about that), however, with fresh tuna caught by local fishermen, it is tuna, 99.9% of the time, no other fish were harmed. Canned tuna on the other hand, many fish, and mammals may have been harmed. For 4 servings, using canned tuna, this is about 90 cents per serving. If using fresh tuna, you can drop this cost a lot.
