Thai Tuna Lettuce Wraps + Spicy Ginger Carrot Cucumber Pickle

I am a big fan of build-your-own meals. You know what I’m talking about right? Recipes where you get to mix and match flavors and toppings to create your own personal bite of heaven.

THIS recipe is just that. Using Blue Harbor Fish Co White Albacore Tuna, these Thai Tuna Lettuce Wraps are a new go-to for me.

 

Blue Harbor Wild Albacore Tuna

 

To bring out the best flavor we created a quick Thai-inspired Spicy Ginger Carrot Cucumber Pickle. Anyone can create this in their own kitchen for a punch of flavor and crunch. Trust me, you don’t want to skip this part.

The fresh carrots and cucumbers are tangy and sweet, with a hint of red pepper and ginger for spice. This fast-pickled topping is perfect with the Blue Harbor tuna.

Blue Harbor tuna contains three ingredients. Seriously. THREE. Tuna, water, and sea salt. (They also offer a no salt added variety.) You will love the mild, clean flavor.

The best part? Blue Harbor tuna contains sustainably-caught wild Albacore tuna. This means that they are 100% line caught using methods to safeguard seafood supplies for the future. Click here to learn more about Blue Harbor Fish Co. products.

      Once I had all of the ingredients prepped, I had this for lunch one day, and then opened more tuna and had it for dinner the next night. So good.

  1. Gloria Duggan says

    What a delicious and healthy lunch idea. Love the lettuce wraps…and the flavour profile here sounds amazing. Since they are so healthy…no guilt needed if you devour 2 (or 3)!!

    • Teri says

      Thank you, Gloria. These really are one of my favorite recipes that I’ve created on the blog. And really isn’t a recipe so much as a flavor combination like you said. So good.

    • Teri says

      This tuna is really so good. The flavor is mild and fresh, you should look for it. (And in the pouches = perfect for lunch. The quick pickle is so easy, my favorite part is the ginger.

    • Teri says

      The first time I went to a Thai restaurant, that is what we had…the chicken wraps with the peanuts and the sauce, cilantro, etc. That is what inspired me to create this version with tuna.

  2. Deepika says

    This recipe looks so tempting. I love the Thai flavours and I am sure these wraps are delicious. By the way, I love the way you have your site designed. Buy this-Cook that is innovatively incorporated in the place of Ingredients and Method. 🙂

  3. Noel Lizotte says

    I’ve been trying to eat lighter at lunch and this seems like a perfect thing to take in my lunchbox. It’s got plenty of flavor so I’m not going to feel cheated!

    • Teri says

      Perfect for lunch. They are filling and so full of flavor. But not heavy. And they are fun to make and eat. So yum, I hope you love them.

  4. Helene says

    I love the touch with the almonds and the fact that it got some zing! Looks like a wrap I would enjoy as a lunch and most probably I would have at least 4 of those =D

    • Teri says

      I had to have some crunch. Originally I was going to use peanuts and keep it as close to traditional Thai cuisine as possible but I was out. Almonds to the rescue.
