Taste test, and again, and again (arobics tempo here)
Now try some with salt and little pepper
Go pour a fresh cold beer
Oops forgot what tuna tasted like
Taste test again, and again, and again - just one more
Dump in bowl
Taste test again - you never know it might have changed
Flake up tuna real course
Add some REAL mayo a little salt, fresh ground pepper a little pickle relish some dry mustard (not very much just a pinch), or some diced Jalapeños, maybe some wassabi
Smear cream cheese on hot bagel - top with Tuna mixture
I guarantee that one pint jar will only make one sandwitch :food:
Point is try some different things till you find what you like. Other adds, hard boiled egg, potatoes, diced onion, sarachi hot sauce, grated medium aged white chedder. I never make it the same twice - cause I can never remember what I used.
Try adding in a little horseradish. MMM! :food: I like to add sweet pickle relish BEFORE adding the mayo. Then just add enough mayo to make it stick together. Makes the tuna salad less watery (if you actually have any leftover)
Pretty much like the others here, but I add a little mustard, 3x as much of the mayo, grated cheese, sweet relish, chopped up boiled egg, sweet relish, salt and pepper to taste and sliced french or sour dough bread.
Chips are great with it?:food:
I've stumbled onto an amazing recipe (trial and error). I don't really measure the ingredients, but this is a good estimate.
1 pint garlic canned tuna
3 tablespoons sweet relish
1 small handful of chopped pepperoncini (can sub onion - red, walla walla or green, depending on your mood, but I like the pepperoncini's.)
2 tablespoons A1 Tabasco steak sauce (secret ingredient)
As much Best Foods mayo as you like - about a cup for me
And the last secret - butter your bread on the inside.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
1 pint tuna, add bestfoods mayo to desired consistancy, add 1 whole stalk celery chopped and diced 1/4" pieces(about 1/4cup or more), add chopped walla walla or other sweet onion(about 1/4cup or more) fresh cracked black pepper, and a few shakes of celery salt.
mix thouroughly...:food::food::food: spread on favotite sliced bread(i like potato) and open a jar of jalepeno's or yellow chili peppers...bite of tuna, bite of pepper!!!
Step 1: Open jar
Step 2: Drain liquid
Step 3: Grab fork
Step 4: Forget the bread, eat TUNA! out of jar
I have to admit, there are many times I've taken a 1/2 pint of smoked TUNA! to work with the intentions of using it as a topping for my green salad. I end up eating the TUNA! and the salad goes untouched :grin:
Tuna, mayo, mustard, chopped dill pickles & a little pickle juice, sweet relish, chopped onion, chopped celery, salt, pepper and a few splashes of Crystal hot sauce. Other things to consider if you want to add are crumble hard boiled eggs, chopped olives, jalapenos and toasted almonds.
OK, if no one else is going to share the secret, I guess I'll have to be the one. There are lots of great ideas above, but the "make or break" for me is wasabi. Mix it into the mayo or buy wasabi-mayo at Uagimaya. If you use real, fresh wasabi you'll be much happier than if you use the S&W fake stuff, made from toxic horseradish. (Bye the way, wasabi and butter on Dungeness is pretty special, too!)
Being totally ignorant, I just checked out wasabi on Wikipedia. I doubt the real thing would be available in Grants Pass, so I may have to try the imitation. Flavored, colored, toxic (??) horseradish. I'll give it a try.
I did finally get a simple mixture that works well enough, thanks to all above. So I'm enjoying my tuna fish sandwiches. Wish I hadn't given most of the albacore away!!
