Tuna With Mustard and Tomatoes

This is another in my series of bachelor recipes for single guys, especially single guys who hate to cook, are broke and don’t have many ingredients lying around.
2 cups rice
2 cups water
2 cups stewed tomatoes
12 oz tuna steak or slab
1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp stoneground mustard
1 tbsp Basque fish sauce
2 chopped olives
1/4 tsp marjoram
Pepper, lemon pepper, basil, herbs, etc, to taste
Heat 2 cups water to boil, then pour in rice. Reduce heat to low and cover until done.
Pour ingredients into large frying pan and stir fry until desired consistency is reached. Add marjoram, pepper, spices, etc at the very end. Put rice on plate and spoon the tuna tomato mixture over the rice.
This actually ended up pretty good. You might think that’s a lot of teriyaki sauce but it worked out just fine. Teriyaki goes great with tuna and you can use lots of it and get away with it. If you don’t have Basque fish sauce, use any white wine.
One might think that the olive oil was excessive too, but it worked out just fine too. Usually, you only need 1 tbsp olive oil, but sometimes you can go higher. The mustard was about right too – 1 tbsp seemed too little and 2 tbsp seemed too much. Marjoram goes well with any tomato dish.
This is a good dish for guys who don’t like to cook, don’t have much money and don’t have much food lying around. You can buy tuna in little packets ready to cook and eat. Rice is really cheap. I got the tomatoes for free from some church surplus food giveaway. They had huge tins of them and they were begging people to take them so I grabbed one.
I’m welcome to suggestions from any of the amateur chefs out there to how I might improve this recipe.
