I think I tried them all back in my body building days (puffs out chest).

I was so desperate make tuna edible, I used a blender to mix a can in water and drink it (just so I could get it down easier) - I ended up gagging.

However, if you are looking for a high protein meal - this was my favorite . . .

Tuna Burgers

- 1 egg (required make them stick together)
- bread crumbs/crackers
- one can of tuna (flakes)
- your favorite seaonings (I always tossed on some mustard and hot sauce for flavor).

- Mix it up, and then throw those bithces on the grill for about 2-3 minutes per side.

Enjoy.

So did I.  Just now reading this. 
 
You're right about the croquets though, that makes tuna good.  You can also take some bread crumbs and coat the outside of the patties a bit and saute them in a little bit of olive oil.  Olive oil is good fat, right? 
 
Also, if you make tuna salad, I hear that if you substitute thousand island dressing for the mayonaise, you'll never go back.

Yeah, I use Thousand Island instead of mayo.  Kraft, believe it or not, makes an excellent fat free Thousand Island.  Though, of course, it is high in sugar.

 Walden Farms (I think) makes a calorie/fat/sugar free "honey mustard" dressing that mixes well with tuna

tuna, baby tomoates, diced onion, red pepper flakes, garlic. Saute together in olive oil, hit with a bit of cream, toss with pasta and call it a day.

Drain the can and put bbq sauce on it. I didn't wanna do that but I was getting bored with just tuna and the fridge at work had some bbq sauce packets. It was pretty good.

I used to make this for lunch all the time. Quick, healthy, and really tasty. Whole time was maybe 10 minutes. 100% made up...

I would cook a ton of brown rice on like Sunday night. Then during my lunch break I would add a little olive oil to a pain, put in some fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, and pine nuts and let that just start to sizzle(but not enough to even turn the garlic brown). I would then drain a can of tuna and add it to the mixture and let it get nice and warm. Then I would add the rice, a little honey, and some sea salt to taste. Cook until it gets nice and warm all the way through.

I thought it was an outstanding little quick dish.
