    SkinnyMinnie's Note:

    The recipe is from the wonderful Booby Flay! A fresh tuna salad sandwich just can't be beat, and I bet the Lemon-Habanero Mayo is makes this dish. I haven't tried this one yet, but DH is begging me to make we'll see ;)

      Hello SkinnyMiniie, this recipe was fabulous! What we did with the scotch bonnet pepper was to leave it whole to allow the sauce to be integrated with it - that way it imparts a nice little bite and then we slice it for those who want that extra wonderful zing! This I did by putting the whole pepper in the lemon syrup while it was cooling. Then removed it and subbed it with a new one that wesliced. I learned this from an old Haitian lady who visited my mothers house everyday and would regale us with colorful stories about her culture, customs and foods and ways of preparing them. We used ciabatta rolls and flaked the tuna and with the sauce and the peppery arugula - we had a sandwich fit for a king. Thanks so much for posting another great Bobby Flay recipe, Diane :)
