Fresh Tuna Salad

READY IN: 25mins


  • 34
    lb fresh tuna steak
  • 2
    tablespoons crab boil (liquid)
  • 2
    tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning (more or less, to taste)
  • 3
    celery ribs, diced
  • 12
    vidalia onion, diced
  • 13
    cup mayonnaise (Hellman's)


  • Fill a large pot with about 1 quart of water and add the liquid crab boil.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add the tuna and boil, on medium, for about 15 minutes, or until the tuna starts breaking apart easily.
  • Remove from the heat, drain, and place the tuna in a large bowl.
  • With a fork and small paring knife break apart, or shred the tuna, however you prefer it. We like a combination of shreds and little chunks.
  • Then toss in the celery and onion.
  • Mix the mayonnaise and the Old Bay and stir into the tuna.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings. Sometimes I will add salt, pepper, hot sauce -- you decide how spicy you want it.
  • You can serve it at room temperature or chilled.
