I used Blue Harbor Albacore Tuna in Water, No Salt Added as I like to control the level of salt added to this recipe, but you are welcome to use Blue Harbor Albacore Tuna in Water, with Touch of Sea Salt;
I used Long Grain Rice but you can use any rice you have or like;
You can add other ingredients like: peas, beans, capers, sun-dried tomatoes etc., or you can omit those that you don’t like.
