The Secret Ingredient That Will Change Your Tuna Salad Forever
By KAREN HART
A basic tuna salad usually consists of canned tuna of your choice, mayo, a little celery, some lemon juice, and a bit of crunchy onion. However, if you want to add a splash of flavor to your tuna salad, you should consider adding soy sauce to your recipe.
Soy sauce, an important condiment used for many Asian recipes, adds "umami" to whatever recipes you want to make pop. It's the rich savory depth of flavor, coupled with a subtle sweetness, that ensures the addition of soy sauce will knock the socks off your tuna salad.
You should also allow your tuna to take a nice bath in the sauce for anywhere between three hours to overnight and let those fermented flavors work their magical powers. Recipes vary, but you can use 1/4 cup of soy sauce for every six five-ounce cans of tuna in your recipe.
