    I'd post a link if my phone would let me. Use the search here and look for "Fish Trifecta". A 4:1 brown sugar to salt is all you need. Add garlic, ginger, black pepper or what ever spice you like after the brine if you want. Goes like this mix sugar and salt, place a layer in a non-reactive container. Place your tuna on that later. Cover with salt sugar mix, add another layer of tuna, too with sugar and salt, repeat until done. Put in refer for 8 hours. Remove rinse, let air dry to form pellicle, smoke.
