Looks like this has a Mexican twist with the cumin in it. ALthough, I know cumin is used in a lot of different ethnic cuisines. I'm not sure if I would like cumin with tuna, but it made me think about cilantro and that would be great for me. Some folks hate cilantro, and I wasn't a fan at first, but it grew on me.

I am from California and this is one recipe that I have never heard of. I guess I'm a lil partial to the way my mother makes hers because this one was not for me.

Then why give it a five-star review?
