Chili-lime & Carrot Tuna Boats

By SueAnna Harrison

This was inspired by my favorite Caesar salad at Panini Bakery in Nye Beach that uses whole romaine leaves as the “bowl”.

Tuna lettuce wrap


  • 1 can Oregon’s Choice Gourmet Albacore tuna 7.5 oz (lightly salted or no salt added)
  • Carrot-ginger-miso dressing (from Trader Joe’s)
  • Thai Chili Lime Almonds (Trader Joe’s)
  • Pistachios
  • 2 whole romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 carrot (shredded)
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Basil
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

Open 1 can of Oregon’s Choice Gourmet Albacore tuna (don’t drain the fish oil!) and flake with a fork into a bowl. Add the carrot-ginger-miso dressing, mix well and set aside.

On a plate place 2 whole romaine lettuce leaves. Add the tuna to the inside of the leaves and shred a carrot over the top. Garnish with the nuts, cherry tomatoes and basil. Grind fresh cracked black pepper over the top and enjoy!
