Tuna Kebabs are made with canned tuna (which is already shredded) and preserved in water. They go well as starters or breakfast and are absolutely delicious. I serve them with some green coriander chutney for the best taste. It is an easy recipe to prepare and a healthy snack for your kids and all age groups. All in all it is an appetizer which will be a treat for your eyes as well as your tummy.
The fish is a powerhouse of essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamin A, B6 and B12, and as such is beneficial for health.
