Since a local landmark is “Barnacle Bill” — an open air seafood market that specializes in on-site smoked salmon — and some tuna as well, it seems only right to come up with recipes that use them! After some reading and working through recipes by others — here is my first try. It’s full of all sorts of flavors I usually have not associated with tuna salad — this is not the apple-pickle-mayo stuff I grew up on.
12 oz smoked tuna, flaked
1/3 c minced kalamata olives
1/4 c sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 c finely minced celery
1/4 c chopped chilis in adobo sauce
1 T adobo sauce from the chilis
2T lemon j
2T olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Excellent on toast, or stuffed into various fresh veggies….
