The ingredients and procedure for making tuna puff resembles bread and butter pudding, albeit less custardy and certainly not sweet. This is a delicious alternative to a simple tuna sandwich, though not as quick to prepare. And it looks quite different from a sandwich. The end result is crusty and moist. Unfortunately the pictures don't do it justice.
Note: the recipe suggests draining the tuna. I used tuna in oil, didn’t drain it and skipped the butter.
