Recipe by StevenHB

I've been making this for years and love it. The original recipe called for 1-2 tsp of salt, which I found to be too much. A full teaspoon of the chili paste (I use Lan Chi Chili Paste With Garlic from my local Whole Foods but you might be able to get it at a local Asian/Chinese grocery) is pretty hot but as I like it. Adjust as you see fit. Different brands will have different heat. I've served this on cucumber slices, in endive leaves, and molded in a ring on a plate. Sometimes I garnish with black and/or white sesame seeds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice the tuna into pieces the size of a raisin.
  2. Combine the diced tuna and all other ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill for no longer than an hour before serving.
