It's spicy and super-addictive! Serve with lettuce as lettuce wraps. Great with crackers and pita bread, too.

I would recommend ditching the salt. The soy sauce is plenty. Read More

This was very very good! This is a fresh way to make tuna salad plus I love Asian food. I followed the directions as was written and I ate mine on an English muffin with lettuce and toasted. My husband ate his on toasted white bread with lettuce. He loved it also. The only thing I would do different next time is add lemon zest and lemon juice. I think that would add a nice fresh flavor to it. I have a lot left over so I may go ahead and add the lemon zest and juice to it now. Read More

Very good. A little spicy, so I'll adjust that next time. I put it on lettuce wraps to serve. Read More

Great for broke college students! I hate the fishy taste of regular tuna salad and this is creative completely different flavor. It's seasoned thoroughly enough that your friends won't complain about the smell when you eat it in front of them. It's become one of my staple recipes. Read More
