I love just a few fishes that I will eat. I do not like fresh tuna and have not eaten it but I love
canned tuna with oil/in water. My husband always said I am weird. There are more these kinds of large fish which I will not eat them. I am repelled from their smell while cooking. Well, this is just me and please do not get unhappy and disappointed.
I love to prepared dishes with canned tuna but I still fresh tuna on sushi and sashimi or pan fried for him. I came up with this salad because I have a one or two each stalks of celery, apples and bell peppers.
