Ahi tuna - I made tuna salad with it! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, it's not as crazy as it sounds. We bought a couple of decent sized pieces of tuna and had one piece for dinner. The next night something else was planned and totally forgot about it the following night. We were doing a house exchange and were then about to leave. What to do? I seared the piece til completely done but not overdone. I let it cool completely and crumbled up in small to not so small pieces. Added some capers, lemon juice, a dab of Dijon mustard, mayo and s&p. We're staying in a dog-friendly motel on the way home and having it for dinner. It was VERY important that I taste it ahead of time, right???????????????? It's the best dang tuna salad --- by only about a million percent :) Granted, it's a bit of a splurge but.... BUT. I will sometimes fix either chicken or shrimp salad as a little hors d' when entertaining. I'm going to add this to my repertoire.
