Have you tried making tuna sisig using a can of tuna flakes? This recipe should be able to guide you on how to make one at home. This simple sisig version is something that you can quickly make for pulutan. It can even be enjoyed for lunch or dinner with rice.
The best tuna sisig that I had is made from fresh tuna. However, this does not mean that canned tuna is not good enough. I think that this sisig version is really good too. In addition, it is quick and easy to make.
I remember making this mostly during my college years. Budget was tight during those days, but it never stopped me from making the most from what I had. Sometimes, I even think that this is better than the real deal when we are talking value for your money.

Hi Vanjo! I’d like to ask if pwede po maglagay ng ginger sa recipe na ito since yung iba pong recipes na sisig (e.g. bangus sisig) may ginger din. Is there a difference po? Super thankful po ako sa website niyo kasi natuto po ako magluto dito. Ingat po kayo parati—
