My last tuna-inspired keto recipe was a spicy tuna/guacamole combo. I thought it would be a crowd-pleaser over at /r/ketorecipes. But for some strange reason, my spicy guacamole tuna salad didn't get the fanfare it deserved. Now some bloggers may have just thrown in the towel after a recipe flop - but not me! Nope. I went back to the ketogenic drawing board to mount a glorious comeback! Sure, tuna salad isn't as sexy as other keto-friendly recipes like PB bread or ketogenic chocolate mug cake. But KetoFlu.com doesn't do sexy recipes. It does lazy, all-American low-carb foods that taste like heaven. Plus this has f'ing Sriracha in it!

Feast your eyes on the Sriracha Tuna Fish Salad Volcano. It's a mound of mayonnaise-drenched tuna fish with a well of delicious Sriracha hot sauce inside. If you don't love this recipe, you'd better check your pulse.

  1. Looks kind of gross but I do love mayo drenched tuna, so I will have to try this. This has the dubious honor of being the first #keto pin on my newly created Keto board! Great blog by the way!

  3. Seriously good! I'm eating it right now. I had to sub fresh cilantro for the dried (used 2 tbsp) and I won't ever be able to eat tuna without it again. Thanks again!
