Tuna in a can comes in 3 basic forms. ‘Chunk’ tuna or ‘flaked’ tuna, packed in water or oil, and albacore tuna. Although albacore is a bit more expensive, the reason is it is superior to the chunk or flake form, and enhances the tuna recipes. The texture as well as the firmness of albacore tuna is similar to chicken. You would always want to buy the tuna that is packed in water, just to avoid that oily taste. The water packed tuna also has a lot less calories as well. If you really like fish, fresh tuna from your seafood store adds other possibilities to your menus. Fresh tuna is great either broiled or lightly grilled.

Another way to prepare this sandwich is to mix all of the ingredients (the onion, tomato, cheese and garlic) into a bowl. Use flour tortillas and warm them lightly. Lay a fresh crispy leaf of lettuce on the tortilla. Add the tuna mixture and then roll it up. You can also substitute cheddar cheese for the Parmesan, as well as adding a bit of salsa sauce. Roll up and enjoy.
