Hey guys thanks for your replies.

The tuna I used 2 weeks ago and which tasted nice was "Princes" Tuna steak in sunfower oil. Then the one which tasted bad a week ago was "Asda" tuna steak in sunflower oil. The one which tasted horrible yesterday was "Princes" tuna steak in sunflower oil. I noticed this taste differences before when I had tuna. But it has only come to my attention.

Could it really be that its been in the shop for to long? I mean caned food is supposed to last for years.

EDIT: Hmm could it be a mayonaise and tuna combination that gave it that horrible flavour. Last yesterday I used hellman's extra light. And the other time it was horribe just hellman's ordinary I think.

use the water-packed tuna. the sunflower oil may have been competing with the mayo (really just another "oil").

Altho I think I grew up eating mom's tuna salad sandwiches with pre-water-packed tuna and Miracle Whip and lived to tell the tale.

mish, I think the pouch stuff is OK, but I believe you get less for your dollah. Fancy packaging and all, you know.

I agree tuna can taste different even tho it is the same brand and type. The tuna can be mush instead of chunk... the chunk can be solid or flaky bits. Makes it taste different to me. Recently I have been buying the tuna in the pouch and have the same complaint. Quality control is sorly needed. You are right it never tastes the same either.

Yes the packed, air tight packed tuna is pretty good. But as others have stated, there is nothing better than the real thing, leftovers are the best for salads. Good luck!
