This recipe really inspired me to try something new in reference to making tuna meal. I couldn't believe the amount of crunch and crispiness this dish had. The tuna was nice and moist and with extra lemon added to it; made this a meal perfect for any day of the week. I could see myself making this at least once a month and would give it 4 stars.
