Tortang Tuna with Spinach is a type of omelet wherein sautéed tuna and spinach are added to the beaten egg mixture before cooking. This is a practical way to make stuffed omelet. It is easy to prepare and the result is yummy.
This is a basic recipe. Feel free to add more ingredients. I suggest adding shredded cheese if you want this to be richer. Putting-in chopped mushrooms and bell peppers works too.
I enjoyed this dish for breakfast. I had it just by itself. This is also best when eaten with toast or even rice. I suggest that you try it with sinangag na kanin (Filipino garlic fried rice) and a bit of banana ketchup as a condiment.
A similar dish that you can also consider is called tortang dulong. This involves the use of small fresh fish which are known as dulong. There is a similarity in the cooking process between these two dishes.
