I've used it to make salmon salad...which is the same thing as tuna salad...but I just use the salmon instead.
If the leftover amount is really small, I just add alittle mayo/mustard and mix it really well with the salmon to make a spread. Spread on LC tortilla or a lettuce wrap.

Use it to make salmon patties. I use Char's crab cake recipe and sub salmon for the crab.
Char's Crabby Cakes with Chipotle Aioli
1 1-lb. can backfin crabmeat (procured at Costco in the refrigerated secton) or fresh crabmeat
1/2 cup crumb mix (see below)
1/4 cup Best Foods mayo
1/4 teaspoon White Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
Additional crumb mix for breading
Oil for frying (I used a mix of 2/3 coconut/1/3 olive oil)
Mix together crumb mix, mayo, and egg; stir in Worcestershire and Old Bay. Mix well. Blend in rinsed and drained crabmeat, mixing lightly.
Divide into 6 equal portions and form into thick patties. Put additional crumb mixture on a plate and coat each side of the patties. Refrigerate coated patties for an hour before frying.
Heat oils (to about 1/2" deep) in large nonstick or cast iron frying pan over medium high heat til shimmering. Cook patties, 3 at a time, until nicely browned on each side, about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve with Chipotle Aioli.
Mix 1/4 cup Best Foods mayo with Chipotle Tabasco, lemon juice, and crushed garlic to taste. Chill til serving time.
Crumb mix - I keep this in a Ziploc bag in the freezer all the time. It's great for breading anything from crab cakes to pork chops to veggies for oven or pan frying!
1 cup crushed pork rinds (I love to use the Hot & Spicy kind but plain is fine too) mixed with 2 tablespoons flax meal, 1/4 cup almond meal, and 2 tablespoons Vital Wheat Gluten. Shake well and freeze to use as needed.
You can crush the pork rinds with a rolling pin in a Ziploc bag, or do them in the Vitamix, blender, or food processor until they are a nice fine crumb.
