Century Tuna Sisig

I love Century Tuna! Whether enjoying it straight from the can or experimenting with various recipes, it's a gastronomic love affair for years now. I also love its many variations from the Solid or Chunks in vegetable oil or water to my ultimate favorite - Flakes in Oil (Hot and Spicy)! One of my most successful recipes, if I do say so myself, would be the Century Tuna Sisig. I just love how appetizing it can always be and I keep on experimenting with the recipe every time I make one.
Here's my simple recipe for Century Tuna Sisig.

  • 2 cans Century Tuna Solid/Chunks in Vegetable Oil or Water, 180 grams each
  • 1 can Century Tuna Flakes in Oil Hot and Spicy, 180 grams (optional for those who want it hot & spicy)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 medium onions, minced (I like it with more onions but you can adjust it)
  • 1/3 cup vinegar OR 2 teaspoons tamarind mix 
  • 2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
  • Chilies, sliced (optional)
  • Oil

How to make Century Tuna Sisig
  1. In a pan, saute garlic and half of the onions.
  2. Add canned tuna. (You may drain the vegetable oil or water if you want but I usually don't. If you will be also using the Hot and Spicy variant, add it later)
  3. Mix-in vinegar or tamarind powder and soy sauce and boil/simmer until almost dry - around 10-15 minutes or so. Adjust flavor to suit your taste
  4. Add around 2 tablespoons of oil and the remaining onions (again I like it with more onions). 
  5. If you will be using the Hot and Spicy variant, use it (tuna and oil) instead of the oil in the above procedure.
  6. "Stir-fry" for about 2-3 minutes or until you get the desired "crunch"
  7. Serve (on a sizzling plate) and enjoy! 

The above recipe is just a guide for usually, I don't measure the ingredients. I just throw-in the spices and adjust it to suit my taste- and it always comes out delicious. So its just a matter of taste as you experiment on your own canned tuna sisig.
