“Canned tuna is more commonly called “sea chicken” on island. This recipe is almost like a smooth tuna pate. It can be used as a dip or spread. It even makes a great snack or light entrée when used as a topping over rice. NOTE: On Okinawa, dill pickles are still limited to very few grocery stores. I found that the juice is a good substitute if a smooth final consistency is desired.”
