It was during this 30 minutes that I helped a friend plana baby shower for another friend. We worked out menus, assignments, food ideas and a theme. We decided to host a fun little tea party and we split up duties among four of us. Fresh flowers, fresh fruit, sweet pastries and I chose to make little tea sandwiches. I came up with an idea to jazz up some tuna fish with wasabi, and these were the hit sandwiches of the party. In truth, there was only one other sandwich, which I also made, so of course there wasn't much choice, but you get the idea. This sandwich has a bit of a kick from the wasabi and horseradish and the filling tastes great paired with cucumber and avocado as I've done here, or just with the bread itself. It comes together so fast, which is why we love tuna in the first place, and the addition of the heat just makes it a lot more interesting and flavorful.
Wasabi Tuna Fish Salad
Serves 4 to 6
2 cans of 5 oz tuna fish (skipjack tuna has lower mercury, is line caught, and is really high in omega 3)
⅓ cup finely chopped red onion
⅓ cup finely chopped celery
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons wasabi
1 teaspoon fresh horseradish (if you don’t have horseradish handy, just add an additional teaspoon of wasabi)
salt if needed
Open cans of tuna and drain water. In a medium bowl add tuna, red onion, celery, mayonnaise, wasabi and horseradish. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
Serve on soft bread, with optional addition of sliced cucumbers and avocado.
This is best enjoyed by taking a huge bite!
