Besides being the perfect sandwich for lunch, tuna fish contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids and is an excellent source of vitamin B12. If you are on a fish or seafood diet, tuna fish is worth being on your food list.

Not all fish or seafood salads must contain mayonnaise. You can opt to make this recipe without the mayonnaise, and it is excellent. This recipe is perfect without it. It is light and not messy.

The ingredients you will need are as follows:

  • Canned Tuna Fish: I prefer Albacore wild chunk-style tuna. It comes in small pieces and has a creamier texture,, and best for salads. It can be purchased online, at Amazon, or at your local supermarket. Choose any brand you prefer.
  • Red Onion: a flavorful onion that adds much zest to any sandwich. You can also substitute it with shallots.

  • Noubess Hot and Spicy Sauce, no substitution there. We don’t play around with flavor as we want to achieve total satisfaction. Check out our Noubess Shop.
