This comforting dish is quick and easy to assemble. I was inspired to make it because of the several months of cabin fever longing for some Asian flavours. I looked in the pantry and the fridge and had most items, so I only had to do one small trip to the market to find Coriander and wasabi. It has hints of Ginger and Sesame Oil, wasabi paste and a touch of Coriander that gives it an International flair. Prepare it on a cool day, predominantly for fall and winter months. Preparation is easy, low labour intensified, and great results. It can be served with rice or any other side. Cheers & Saludos! The Capt’n.

A colorful blend of vegetables and Asian seasoning notes with canned tuna.
- 3 cans Chunked light or white tuna in water
- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
- 4 tbsp Soya sauce
- 1 juice Fresh squeeze lime
- 3 tbsp Freshly Grated Raw Ginger Root
- 1 1/2 tbsp Fresh or Dry dill
- 2 cups Fresh or frozen Corn drained
- 1 cup Fresh or frozen Peas drained
- 1/4 cup Fresh chopped Coriander Stems included

- 1 Sweet Yellow Pepper Finely diced, ribs out
- 2 1/2 cups Fine Bread crumbs
Pre-heat oven to 375 Farenheit and set the medium rack.
Lightly grease an 8 x 4 x 3 inch loaf pan. I used olive oil, you could use a cooking spray, if you wish.
Place all ingredients into a large bowl and stir to well mixed.
Pour mixed ingredients into loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes. Broil on high for the last 3 minutes to brown off the top.
Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Turn upside down on serving platter. Cut portions using a bread knife.
Serve with a side of your choice.
I use light meat tuna because it is not a dry as white meat tuna.
Serve with Jost Tidal Bay from Nova Scotia or a light white wine.
