2 1/4 pounds

extra-virgin olive oil

green onion, finely chopped
fresh red chile pepper, seeded and chopped

Outstanding, an excellent fresh, tasty salad. Use a combination of red, orange, and yellow tomatoes for a visually stunning presentation. The combination of fresh cilantro, basil, green onion, chilis, and tomato makes for a fresh, vibrant look and taste. Sear the tuna in a very hot skillet or wok, and turn with tongs to sear both sides for maximum flaor.
Be sure to chop the tuna into fairly small pieces, less than 1".
Really really good -way better than it looks like it's gonna be!! And I even used cheap canned tuna! I also added a touch more honey to the dressing, a bit of chile paste, some frozen peas, cashews and served over mixed greens. Yummy, inexpensive and healthy!!
THIS is a recipe that you will cook over and over again- basic but with flair and loads of flavor. What a crisp, zingy change from bland American canned tuna salad. The seasonings are just right, and guests loved this dish and have asked me for the recipe. Try it!
My tip: drain the sauce before searing and pat dry tuna with paper towel to aid searing. Add 2 TSP of corn starch to sauce and reapply sauce to tuna after searing.
I added additional lime juice and zest to counter the fishiness.I also added chopped lemon grass and dried pepper flakes for some additional heat. Outcome was excellent.
very simple to make and good (and colourful) to eat even if the sauce smells kinda funny while cooking
This was delicious! It was mild enough to please my parents, and tasted great when I added chili paste to the rice I served it with.
