Recipe by Sheila Queen
This is a Great Seafood Appetizer. It is easy and cheap to make but taste like a million. I assure you it is a crowd pleaser.

Made as directed except manufacturers don't make tuna in the 6 oz can now. Because of the smaller can (5 oz), I decreased the liquid smoke by 1 tablespoon. I let it marinate for about 2 hours then completed the last steps. We found the liquid smoke to be overpowering. I think next time I will do 2 tablespoons and see where that takes me. Still, overall this is a good, inexpensive dip. Thanks for sharing.
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna in vegetable oil
- 5 tablespoons liquid smoke
- 3 tablespoons Mrs. Dash seasoning mix (the one with the green cap)
Directions See How It's Made
- Drain tuna of as much excess liquid as you can.
- You may use the new tuna in a pouch if you desire.
- Once tuna is drained, place in bowl, add liquid smoke and mix well.
- Cover container and let set 30 minutes to overnight.
- The longer it sets the better it will absorb the smoke flavor.
- Remove tuna from fridge and add Mrs.Dash, mix well.
- Next add mayo 1 tablespoon at a time until you achieve the desired consistency.
- Since this is meant to be eaten with crackers you want to keep it thick but creamy. (I usually use about 5 tablespoons).
- You can also add chopped boiled eggs and extra mayo to this recipe to create an interesting tuna salad for sandwiches.
