Nutritional values

Marinated tuna brings plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which protect our cardiovascular system, to this dish. In addition, the fish provides a lot of vitamin D, which strengthens the structure and function of muscles and supports healthy bones.

This marinated tuna mixture isn't just for finger food, but is delicious on top of salads as well.
