How To Make Tuna Sandwich
Here's how to make tuna sandwich:
Start by opening a can of tuna and draining the excess water. Spread some mayonnaise on one slice of bread and put as much you like. We prefer to have a small spread for mayo as a good base. Because we will be adding some home-made spicy sriracha with mayo sauce later.
Place the tuna on top of the mayonnaise. Use a fork to break the tuna into smaller pieces if it is in large chunks. Then place the letteuce on top of the tuna and spread a bite for spice and sweet sauce.
If you are using tomato and onion, slice them and place them on top of the lettuce. But we like a big lettuce and a slice of cheese to go with it. As if you want you can create a cheese melt tuna sandwich for later. For some taste, gently sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on top of the vegetables.
And then repeat, the process. Press down gently on the sandwich to help it hold together.
You can also add other ingredients to your tuna sandwich, such as cheese, avocado, or pickles. Feel free to get creative and make the sandwich to your liking!
