    Yes. You can make spicy tuna by adding spice.

    It can be, but you can 'pep' it up with a dressing / mayo mix.

    Tartar sauce is good, as is diced scallion, diced red bell pepper in with the mayo.

    One of my favourite sandwiches is  ;-  wholemeal bread spread with hummus, flaked tuna, thinly sliced red radish & a sprinkle of salt, Yum! I want one now!.

    Yes. That's why you add things to it.

    I would call it subtle, instead of bland.

    It is bland, if the tuna is packed in water. 

  • If you are asking in reference to someone who has been told to eat a bland diet for medical reasons - as long as it is water-packed tuna, it would be considered bland.

    It is a mild tasting fish but I would not call it bland. 

    It is important that it not be over cooked or it will be very dry. 

    I like it seared BRIEFLY on each side if it is cooked at all. 

    Since it is a mild fish many sauces can be used with it.  I think it goes best with soy sauce, ginger, citrus type flavors although heavier sauces will compliment it as well. (teriyaki, hoisin and others)

    Pretty much, but you can do lots of things with it.

    Kinda. You gotta spice it up.
