10 Ideas For Canned Tuna That Every Camper Must Try

In 2012, Americans ate a whopping 751 million pounds of canned tuna!

Besides being a staple of school lunches, canned tuna is a favorite camping food. This is because it’s relatively cheap, easy to carry and doesn’t require refrigeration.

However, when we can tuna, it loses its strong fish taste. Unfortunately, this means it doesn’t have much of any flavor.

Which means if you open up a can of tuna and don’t add any seasonings, it’s bland. Not very appealing.

But there are many ways to tune up that tuna. Even if you’re on a camping trip with limited supplies.

We have compiled a list of 10 desirable recipes.
