Tuna Pasta

Having been tasted wansuy in various Asian cuisine like Hainanese Chicken , I started to like the flavor that it imparts.  Moreover, wansuy is usually used to flavor sauces for fish recipes.  I’ve been cooking my tuna pasta with wansuy in various different occasions.

A few people also tasted it and so far, I’ve got no bad comment.  This is just a re-post of my recipe that I did few years back.
