Spicy Tuna Fish Sandwich

Recipe by  

"This is similar to classic tuna fish salad but with a kick. My boyfriend made this when we were out of relish and decided to substitute with jalapenos. It was awesome! I added the relish back in to give it a sweetness along with the spiciness."

Two slices of bread for four sandwiches just doesn’t work (at least not in this house). Made two servings today using a 4-oz can of albacore tuna fish, two slices of toasted bread, and my homemade pickled jalapenos...it was a big sandwich, and we split it for lunch. We liked the flavor that the jalapenos brought to the tuna salad but did not care for the sweet pickle relish. I’ve never seen cheddar cheese crumbles in the store, so I just chopped up some cheddar and did add a little salt to the tuna salad. If I were to make this again, I’d skip the sweet relish and just roll with the jalapeños and cheddar, adding a little chopped onion and celery. I think this would be a good candidate for a delicious tuna melt as the recipe author suggests.

I love all of these ingredients, so made it as my lunch. I doubled the jalapenos & added hot dog relish for some mustard "kick". I left out the cheese (crumbles?). Next time, I would add a lot more jalapenos, and this seemed to cry out for chopped dill pickles, onion and celery - in other words, my standard tuna salad with jalapenos added. I like some crunch to my tuna, which this just didn't have.
