Tips  

You've heard of omega 3s and you may know that tuna is a super source. Omega 3s are a special kind of heart-smart fatty acid that helps to reduce risk of heart disease.

Rice-paper wrappers, made from rice flour, water, and salt, are brittle, dried flatbreads that are sold in Asian groceries and some supermarkets. They must be reconstituted in hot water before using in wraps and other recipes.
