One of my favorite places to eat in my neighborhood is a cozy little family-owned Thai place on the corner of a strip mall where I used to work. It was a popular pit stop for employees on their lunch break, but I worked the night shift, so I always missed peak business hours any time a Thai-food craving struck. Which was perfect, because I’d get the place to myself. I could wake up near closing time with a Thai iced tea or Thai coffee before going into work and slurp down some leftover Tom Kha Gai or Beef Udon on my own midnight lunch break. And if I was feeling particularly hungry, I’d pick up some of their spicy, peanutty Thai Tuna Salad. Mmf. This AIP-friendly version is a modest ode to Thai flavors, served up on a lettuce wrap with plenty of spice despite the lack of red chilies! It’s my all-time favorite way to eat tuna.
