    IOjaw's Note:

    Canned tuna is more commonly called “sea chicken” on island. This recipe is almost like a smooth tuna pate. It can be used as a dip or spread. It even makes a great snack or light entrée when used as a topping over rice. NOTE: On Okinawa, dill pickles are still limited to very few grocery stores. I found that the juice is a good substitute if a smooth final consistency is desired.

      Delicious tuna spread! I didn't have any white onion so I had to use onion flakes and garlic powder instead of the paste. I loved the taste the pickle juice gives the dish. We ate this for lunch with crackers while watching some football on Sunday. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
