  • 4 6" round fresh corn tortillas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, for brushing the tortillas
  • 1 150 gr. canned Wild Solid White Albacore Tuna (from Raincoast Trading)
  • 2 medium limes, zest and juice divided
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 medium pineapple, skin and core removed, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium avocado, pit and skin removed, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (leaves and tender stems)
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with non-stick paper and place corn tortillas on it. Brush lightly with olive oil on both sides. Bake for about 5-7 minutes per side, 10-14 minutes total, flipping once. Tortillas should crinkle-up on the sides and just start to turn slightly brown.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl toss tuna (Raincoast Trading doesn't require draining, drain other brands) with zest and juice from 1 lime, garlic, and chopped jalapeño. Season lightly with salt and toss to combine flavours.

  4. In a medium bowl combine pineapple, red bel pepper, avocado, and cilantro. Season lightly with salt.

  5. Layer corn tortillas, tuna, cabbage, and salsa.
