F4F, Summer Edition: Spicy Thai-Style Tuna Salad

Fresh Tuna Salad

Ken Hom is one of the most prolific cookbook writers you never heard of (I bet). He’s been pumping out books on Chinese, Thai and other Asian cuisines for more than 25 years now, and he’s been featured on television cooking shows.

He even did “East Meets West” style cooking and writing before Ming Tsai! Just look at his list of books and you’ll see.

Borrowing heavily from his Thai cooking books (Ken Hom Cooks Thai, Simple Thai Cookery), I adjusted one of his recipes to fit my own tastes and to use ingredients I could easily find:

This dish is great for hot weather. It’s easy to make, doesn’t require much cooking (no slaving over a hot stove!), and comes together so fast you won’t believe you’re done when you plate it!

The key ingredient is fresh tuna. Really fresh. Play around with all the other ingredients to find a taste you really enjoy. You may want more or less fish sauce or soy, or perhaps more chile zing (or less, though I wouldn’t know why you would consider that). Try serving it on a bed of fresh lettuce, or with cottage cheese, or even in a pita pocket. However you finally like it, I’m sure this salad will become one of your summer meal favorites

Enjoy the (Snappy Tuna Salad) Heat!
