    Try this with crab (imitation is easiest) sticks like the sushi restaurants do. Just "shred" the crab and mix with a tiny bit of fat free mayo. You can add a little diced onion and cuke to the mix.. sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and... DEEE LISH!! Yummy! (sort of like the crab delight version) - 7/16/08

    I made this only about an hour ago and I have to say it was delicious!

    I made it for one so I used only a teaspoon of sundried tomato and basil tuna (ONLY 10 CALORIES), half a teaspoon of philly, onion and carrot. it was surprisingly filling and absolutely delicious. I would make it again!

    Yummy! I also add light cream cheese to part of it, and add salt seasonings to the tuna mix. I sprinkle with a dash of seasoning salt also. - 8/25/11
