I actually used pickled scapes (Pickled Garlic Scapes or Garlic Whistles) instead of fresh since they're not in season right now but otherwise followed the recipe as directed (well, and I used Szechuan chili sauce rather than the chili paste with garlic as it was what I had on hand). Delicious and different tuna salad. Thanks CG!
