This recipe was given to me by my brother, Jerry, who lives in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. His seafood dishes are to die for, and this one will have you lining up! It makes about 4 lbs. and last up to seven day. It is my number one request to take to a party. Fresh Tuna and Capers makes this an outstanding dish for any get together. After having this wonderful dish you will never eat canned tuna again!
