  1. In a small bowl, mix together fish sauce, lime juice, and honey. Place tuna in a large, plastic, resealable bag, and pour fish sauce mixture over the tuna. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a wok over high heat. When the oil is very hot, almost smoking, place 1/2 tuna in pan; cook and stir for 1 minute, or until desired doneness. Transfer cooked fish to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining oil and tuna.
  3. Toss warm fish with tomatoes, green onion, red chile pepper, cilantro, and basil. Serve.

Outstanding, an excellent fresh, tasty salad. Use a combination of red, orange, and yellow tomatoes for a visually stunning presentation. The combination of fresh cilantro, basil, green onion, c...

Really really good -way better than it looks like it's gonna be!! And I even used cheap canned tuna! I also added a touch more honey to the dressing, a bit of chile paste, some frozen peas, ca...

Be sure to chop the tuna into fairly small pieces, less than 1".

I added additional lime juice and zest to counter the fishiness.I also added chopped lemon grass and dried pepper flakes for some additional heat. Outcome was excellent.

THIS is a recipe that you will cook over and over again- basic but with flair and loads of flavor. What a crisp, zingy change from bland American canned tuna salad. The seasonings are just right...

My tip: drain the sauce before searing and pat dry tuna with paper towel to aid searing. Add 2 TSP of corn starch to sauce and reapply sauce to tuna after searing.

very simple to make and good (and colourful) to eat even if the sauce smells kinda funny while cooking

This was delicious! It was mild enough to please my parents, and tasted great when I added chili paste to the rice I served it with.
