    Phenomenal! I've been looking for this recipe for a while. This is the closest one I have found thus far-- it's like going to the Safeway deli in Kailua and picking it up!  -  27 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent fresh flavor. Didn't have the seaweed so I crumbled up a little nori instead. The tuna is easier to dice if you partially freeze it first. I put in a little wasabi as well.  -  03 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really good recipe, but I just nixed the nuts and just served as is not in lettuce cups.  -  07 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
