Griddle Recipe for Tuna and Fruit Salsa. Tuna is a dish that many people get from a can or a plastic pouch as a quick meal. It is the perfect, healthy meal on the go when served in this manner. However, many supermarkets or fishmongers will sell tuna streaks, which elevate this humble fish into a proper meal that is tasty in its own right and is considered healthier than red meat.

Salsa is usually something that one spreads or crams into a tex-mex meal and consists of tomato, jalapeno, and onion. However, all varieties of salsa consist of just about any plant-based ingredient known to human beings. The condiment has spread from its Hispanic origins and can be put on a variety of dishes. A fruit-based salsa can add a hint of sweetness to a fish dish such as tuna.
