Before we start, I just wanted to give you the benefits of the main ingredient.

Tuna supplies a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your triglycerides, lower your blood pressure and increase the health of your immune system. It can be part of a sensible fat-loss plan. As a nutrient-dense food, tuna packs in protein and vitamins with few calories.
