When I am not on the road I work out of my house whilst multitasking between growing a beard and shushing our pugs.
For whatever reason squirrels and any human dropping off a package are apparently akin to Freddy Kruger in the pug world. So when I don’t have any leftovers I am always poking around the fridge trying to whip up something fast and decent.

I keep a couple of cans of tuna on hand and decided to whip up one of those tuna salads with a little pasta thrown in. Of course I have my Wickles Pickles, Dukes Mayo and Tabasco on hand. So I drained the cans and emptied the into a bowl. Started boiling a small pot of noodles and cooked them al dente. I wanted a little chew to them.

Mix in some Dukes Mayo and Wickles Pickles and a few dashes of Tabasco. Chop up any veggies you have on hand like celery, green onion, carrots, radishes etc… Mix in and add Kosher salt to taste.

I like to also throw a curve ball spice into the mix like a pinch of curry or cumin or Soy. I simply lay it on top of a bed of lettuce and top with a few oyster crackers.

It’s a great way to get your mercury in a hurry. 🙂

Please consider always using natural caught and processed Tuna. No Nets

Today for lunch I was wanting something simple, flavorful and low carb. I had an avocado and some romaine on hand but they were on the back end of their freshness. Whipped up these little tuna boats and topped with a tiny bit of Sriracha chips for some crunch.

Directions:
1. Pretty simple… Press the water from your cans of tuna. Put in a bowl and mix it in with Duke Mayo (use the amount you like in your tuna salad).

2. Mix in the shredded / diced carrots, jalapenos, purple cabbage. Kosher Salt and Pepper… taste and adjust accordingly.IMG_9214

3. Slice your avocado and cut the bottom of your Romaine lettuce. Put some avocado in the base of your lettuce leafs. Top with your Tuna Salad. I hit each boat with 2-3 glugs of Tabasco sauce and then topped with some crumbled Sriracha Chips for color and crunch.
