How to Make French Toasted Tuna Sandwiches

French Toasted Tuna Sandwiches
Tuna is so easily available in canned form that people in many parts of the United States have never tasted fresh tuna. Different varieties are caught off the Pacific coast and off the coast of Florida. Fresh tuna can be baked or broiled with a variety of sauces or eaten raw in Japanese sushi or sashimi. Because of tuna's low calorie and no fat, its perfect for low fat and low calorie diet as a sandwich filling.
