Wanting to do something different with the tuna in my cupboard, I threw together some ingredients that I had left over from a sushi party. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Serve on lettuce leaves or make a sandwich with white bread (wheat bread tends to compete with the flavors).

I absolutely LOVED this! I used wasabi powder because that's what was in the cupboard ground ginger (ditto) and added both a little at a time until it was how I wanted it. Also I didn't need 1/2c of mayo - just a couple of heaped tbsps. I used the tuna salad to top a couple of split toasted buttered English muffins - the contrasting textures worked extremely well. I really really enjoyed this and can't wait to make it again for lunch tomorrow! Thanks! (PS I did indeed make it the next day. I made it into a regular sandwich for husband - on white bread as recommended - and while he still really enjoyed it he said it was MUCH better on the toasted muffin. I have to agree!) Read More

As is it still kinda tastes like generic tuna salad and I absolutely LOVE sushi. In all fairness I added pickled sushi ginger instead of fresh. Not sure if that made a difference. I will try it again with Japanese salad dressing as another reviewer stated because I do think this one has potential. Thanks Read More

Quick and easy. I added jar minced ginger instead(in the fridge) threw it on a salad and sprinkled with rice vinegar as a dressing. Instant healthy lunch! And it helped my sushi craving. Read More

This is a great lower-carb way to enjoy a sushi-like experience. I concur with Katie B that adding rice vinegar (possibly seasoned which includes a splash of sugar and salt) makes a nice touch. Next time I'll try it with pickled ginger for even more authentic sushi taste a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top (mostly for show) and/or a drizzle of Japanese style spicy-mayo. Add wasabi slowly tasting as you go. Read More

Awesome idea! I didn't use that much mayo and used wasabi paste some rice vinegar and some soy sauce. Then I grilled it. This recipe makes my tuna sandwich so much more exciting! Read More

My boyfriend really wanted to try this but I don't like tuna! We compromised by using shredded crab instead of tuna. Another great variation: the same sandwich with melted cheese on top. Read More

This is my new favorite tuna salad...and I eat a lot of tuna! You can customize it to suit your individual tastes and it works perfectly for low-carb lettuce wraps! To make it even simpler you can buy the Wasabi Mayonnaise at your local grocery store! Read More
