"I had this at a tapas bar in Spain way back and was able to figure out how to mimic it. It's an easy way to clean out the fridge and pantry. And, perfect for a low carb diet. I was introduced to this as a tapa. But you could always pair it with a salad or other veggie side dish for dinner."

Very intersting spice blend makes this a amazing tapas. What a nice spin on canned tuna!
