Expert Tips

Although flat-leaf parsley has more flavor than curly parsley, you can substitute the curly variety if that's what's available.

Be careful not to overcook the tuna. You should cook it just until the tuna flakes. Tuna sometimes retains a slightly pink color, even when thoroughly cooked.
