Step 1: Begin by draining 1 can of tuna in spring water, then adding the tuna to a saucepan. Heat on a low heat and mix with 2 tbsp of water until the tuna is hot. Don’t use tuna in brine as it will be too salty. Whilst heating break down the chunks somewhat.
Step 2: Now pour the heated tuna into a mixing bowl, along with 1 tbsp of fish sauce, 1 tbsp of lime juice, 1 tbsp of roasted crushed rice, 1 tbsp of chilli flakes, 1 sliced shallot and 1 tbsp of chopped spring onion. Mix everything together thoroughly, then add in 1/4 cup of mint leaves. Stir one final time, then pair with some butterhead lettuce leaves.
Step 3: To serve, simply wrap some of the tuna mixture in a butterhead leaf, and eat!
