    Optional:
    You can make this a steak sandwich by substituting a 1-inch thick Sirloin steak for Tuna. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. For more spice, add more Chili Flakes to pickled Onions. For less heat, add less.
    2. Let the Onions sit in the pickling liquid for 15 minutes in the refrigerator until they turn bright pink.
    3. To pick a Lime with more juice, pick a heaver lime.
    4. You can use any protein in this sandwich: Chicken, Steak, Tofu.
