Spicy Thai Tuna Sandwiches
Serves: 4
With a creamy thai-inspired sauce and the addition of crispy carrots and cilantro, this isn't your regular, everyday tuna sandwich!
  • 2 (6 ounce) cans chunk light tuna in water
  • 2 Tbs. plain Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 2 Tbs. light mayo
  • 1 Tbs. chili garlic sauce (*see note)
  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper (*see note)
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup matchstick or shredded carrots
  • 8 slices bread
  • mayo or greek yogurt for serving
  1. Open the cans of tuna, drain and flake into a medium sized bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the greek yogurt, mayo, chili garlic sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, ginger, salt and crushed red pepper. (*See note about spice level)
  3. Pour mixture, starting a little at a time over the tuna. Depending on how thick or thin you like your tuna, you might not use all of the sauce. Gently stir to combine, you want to have chunks of the tuna remaining.
  4. Carefully stir in the cilantro and carrots. Spoon mixture onto the bread making two sandwiches or four open face halves. Spread mayo or additional greek yogurt on the bread before spreading the tuna, if desired.
You can adjust the level of spice if desired. For a spicier sandwich, increase the chili garlic sauce and crushed red pepper. For a less spicy version, reduce the amount of these two ingredients.
