..A deep sea fishing trip resulted in a freezer full of tuna steaks..One particular recipe I chose left me with a few marinated and grilled tuna steaks which I used to make these tuna lime tostadas/tacos. I just cut the steaks into bite size pieces used flour tortillas and pico de gallo rather than the corn tostadas and salsa. I also added a diced avocado..Served with drunken fruit slushies...No complaints! Read More

My fiancee and I are trying to eat healthier - this sounded like a great option. I prepared according to directions - to be honest - (its just our opinion) we REALLY didn't like it. We love albacore & are NOT picky eaters but I couldn't even finish mine. Dont let this influence you trying it - it seems it was a big hit with others. As for us though we wont be making this again.

While preparing this, I kept saying to my husband that I thought it seemed like it would need something... but they were REALLY good on their own. We ate them on whole wheat tortillas like soft-shell tacos, and added a few toppings like shredded cheese, lettuce, and extra salsa. Didn't use the sour cream. We'll make them again! Read More

My husband thought these were amazing! He really liked the flavor mixture. I cut back on the cilantro a little and added more salsa. Also added some garlic salt to taste. Read More

These are pretty good! be sure to use the albacore tuna or they will be too fishy! you can't even really tell it's tuna if you use the albacore! Read More

This was an AWESOME recipe! I followed it to a T, but I made quesadillas with them! Just lay a flour tortilla on a plate, put some of the tuna mixture on it, cover it with the second tortilla, and fry it in a pan, both sides, until lightly browned. Cut into wedges and dip in salsa. WONDERFUL!! Read More

I loved this but I did have to change it up a little due to food allergies. I used homemade GF tortilla's that I pan fried until crispy as my base. I used the white tune onion cilantro lime salt and pepper as called for. I took out the corn and replaced with mushrooms and black olives and added extra salsa because I love it. Replaced the hot sauce with old bay. Then topped with avocado. This way it was GF corn and dairy free and still something I could eat. Thank you for a recipe that could be modified to my diet and still taste great. I would never have though to try it with out this recipe as a starting off point. Read More
