Sesame Tuno with Broccoli

I'd heard so many stories about canned Tuno (some loving the taste, some hating it). But, I'd also heard that frozen Tuno has a more pleasant taste and texture, but it can be difficult to find. One day I found it in a health food store in NYC, so naturally I grabbed (and paid for ;) a tube. My idea was to slice it into "steaks" but the tuno crumbled as I tried to slice it while it was stil frozen.

Even though it wasn't the texture that I wanted, it tasted incredible when seasoned and cooked! I nibbled on a small piece without any flavorings (and still partially frozen), and it did taste fishy. I never loved tuna fish, so I can't say if it was really close to tuna fish or not. But I would certainly buy another tube of frozen Tuno to make this recipe again:

Served 1, but can be easily double (or tripled, or quadrupled)

1/4 cup frozen Tuno, shredded
2 spears frozen broccoli, thawed (I microwaved it for a minute)
2 tbs teriyaki sauce
1 tsp dark sesame oil
1 tbs sesame seeds
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup cooked bulghur or couscous

Heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add tuno, stiring occasionally until Tuno begins to darken slightly. Add broccoli and teriyaki sauce until teriyaki sauce reduces slightly, about 5 minutes.

Mix garlic powder with bulghur. Place on dish; spoon tuno mixture ontop of bulghur. Arrange broccoli on plate. Add sesame seeds to broccoli, tuno and bulghur. Eat!
