Creole Tuna

091

Rummaging through the pantry, I couldn’t help but notice the leaning tower of tuna cans staring back at me. But I’m so over tuna noodle casserole and tuna melts. I wanted something different to do with the tuna. And I found it. It sounded really odd at first, and I was hesitant but I had all the ingredients on hand so I took it as a sign.
