Tesco finest Albacore whole tuna steak 200g

I can't really eat tinned fish any more because I once went on a carb-free diet that involved so much tinned fish that it put me right off. Still, tinned tuna is a store-cupboard staple that provides the basis for lots of cheap, cheerful, and healthy meals.
