I was looking for a tuna loaf recipe and found Carol Junkins 'Tuna Cakes~Flavors of Cape Cod.' I made few changes and additions, and on Carol's suggestion, here it is.

Loaf will be on the dry side, since it's tuna and therefore, no fat, so you may want to serve with tartar sauce, a dill mayo, or any of your choice.
