Healthy Tuna Sisig

My husband and I love sisig, specially pork sisig.   That’s why I often cook and experiment on this dish.  In fact, there are 5 pork sisig recipes in our food blog ( But in this  entry we won’t be talking about pork sisig.  In this entry, we would like to share a healthier version of sisig – the tuna sisig.

My husband, though he likes pork sisig, he doesn’t want it to be too fatty and oily as much as possible.  What can you expect with pork sisig, right?   So when I cooked  this tuna sisig for him – he fell in love with it :-)  Actually, I never thought I’m going to like this dish because my concept of sisig is fatty pork, but I did.  This tuna sisig tasted so good.   It’s meat is succulent and flavourful, giving the dish a nice mouth feel and rich taste .  It’s simply delicious and a lot healthier compared to pork sisig.

Our tuna sisig is easy to prepare and cook.  And the most important thing is that it is deliciously healthy :-)  It’s less than 250 calories per serving, and it is high in protein, and healthy fats.   Like the pork counterpart of this dish, it can also be eaten along with your favorite alcoholic drinks.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet shall be a lot more useful than ever before.


    It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly donate to this brilliant blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle

Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and
    checking back often!


    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    Although it can do all of the shredding itself, there are some reasons to work with professionals. The legislation will impact on any business or organisation that manufactures, assembles, imports, re-sells, retails, disposes of or receives these items for disposal. For this reason alone if you have an office that is either upgrading your computers or you are closing your business recycling your computer equipment through a qualified recycler is the only good option.

    If, instead of tuna, I used salmon, would it matter?

    • Brandon Goggil

      No wouldn’t matter, I bet salmon would be great sisig
