Fishing For Compliments? Make This For Dinner And See What Happens!

My mom used to make a tuna casserole that was fairly standard fare. Basically it was a white sauce with a can of tune and a bunch of frozen peas mixed in. She served it over rice and it was the only kind of fish my dad would eat.

We would have occasional fish sticks, but we weren’t a big fish eating family. Whenever my dad went fishing with my brothers he did a catch and release so he wouldn’t have to eat his fish.

I still make that recipe creamed tuna with peas recipe, but this might be a nice catch.
