"This is I believe an old Tyler Florence recipe. It's so old, I can't find it listed in his recipes. I have modified it from the original too. I just love the delicate flavor. You can add hot sauce, however, I think the taste would be altered too much. Try it both ways. I grind up the tuna in my food processor. (Make sure you clean it right away as the tuna becomes like glue)."

I made these for my friend and I for lunch today and they were excellent! The Asian flavors were great. I did substitute low sodium soy sauce for the Worcestershire sauce. It worked great and really blended with the other ingredients to give that awesome Asian flair that I love so much. I also put in a drop or two of sesame oil. Yum!

These were great . . .the only thng I did differently was used soy sauce instead of worchestershire. We're dieting, so served as a 'tuna cake' with a wedge salad. Thanks for posting!
