Here u go Honey!
For canned tuna, here are some suggestions:

1. Lemon pepper, 1 T good olive oil, chopped red onion, capers, chopped black olives, 1 T shredded asiago cheese
2. Olive oil or lowfat mayonaise, grapes, chopped celery, chopped red onion, chopped peanuts, a dash of curry powder
3. Shredded carrots, raisins, olive oil or lowfat mayonaise
4. Layer lowfat cream cheese with tuna salad and sliced olives
5. Basic Tuna: 1 can tuna, drained and flaked; 1/2 cup mayonaise; 1 T chopped sweet relish; 1 tsp chopped fresh dill or 1/4 tsp dried dill; 2 T chopped red onion; 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper.

For fresh tuna:

1. Coat tuna with cracked peppercorn and kosher salt. Sear on both sides for 3 minutes and serve rare with a wasabi dipping sauce.
2. Brush fish with melted lowfat margarine, lemon juice, chopped parsley.

That looks so yummy! My mom is diabetic so I am going to see if I can substitute some of the ingredients for sugar free products for her.
