Tuna is high in omega 3 fatty acids which is thought to help significantly reduces the risk of heart disease, as well as being high in many vital vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, vitamin D, and potassium. Kitchen tip - take the tuna and salsa out of the fridge out of the fridge 5 minutes before serving on the tostadas to ensure that they are room temperature, so the flavours taste more vibrant.
