Moreover, very few lunchbox items can match this innovative version of the classic tuna sandwich. So let Thiessen’s tastier take on the tuna fish sandwich put an end to boring lunches and inspire you to make your own!
The Tuna Fish Sandwich Reinvented
In terms of sogginess, tuna fish sandwiches are the worst offenders. In addition, the flavors are usually one-dimensional, evoking memories of boring elementary school lunches. However, restoring this classic lunchbox favorite is a lot simpler than one might think.
Thiessen not only uses a traditional blend of creamy mayonnaise on her canned tuna, but she also adds additional ingredients for a crispy, savory texture and flavor. Shallots add a sweet yet mild bite to the tuna, while dill, parsley, chives, and fennel fronds add a fresh garden taste that complements the lemon spritz’s bright, citrusy flavor. To accompany her herb tuna, Thiessen chooses a crusty baguette over soggy sliced bread.
