Kinilaw na Tuna


  • 2 lbs tuna; skinned, deboned, and cubed
  • 1 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 1 large red onion, minced
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup lemon or calamansi juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons red chilies, chopped


  1.  Place the cubed tuna meat in a large bowl then pour-in 3/4 cups of vinegar.
  2. Let stand for 2 minutes then gently squeeze the tuna by placing a spoon on top applying a little pressure.
  3. Gently wash the tuna meat with vinegar. Drain all the vinegar once done. This will help reduce the fishy smell.
  4. Add the remaining 3/4 cup vinegar, calamansi or lemon juice, ginger, salt, ground black pepper, and red chilies then mix well.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  6. Top with minced red onions and serve (you may also add the red onions with the rest of the ingredients in step 4).
  7. Share and enjoy!
