Fast source of omega 3s! For a kind of tartar sauce, I mix 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/2 a tablespoon of soy sauce, and a little relish.

I want to try this recipe, but I will likely use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce, since soy sauce contains wheat and isn't paleo. Other than that, it sounds good

Made this, specifically wanted something without bread crumbs. Used Tamari Sauce instead of soy sauce, but would try the coconut aminos next time. Was afraid the almond meal would give it a slight almondy flavor, but didn't notice it at all. Totally forgot to add the salt and pepper, d'oh! I would have liked it with a little more zing, so maybe next time I will use a spicy salt and perhaps some chopped jalapenos. But it is a very easy, quick recipe to prepare. A food processor really helped to mix it up too, by hand I couldn't get the tuna chunks small enough to absorb the liquid. Family of 4 ate them all up. Would make again.
