Combine the tuna with the lime juice mixture just before serving to maintain the bright red color of the fish--a must-do if you like tuna rare. If you want "cooked" tuna, soak it in 1/2 cup lime juice (enough to cover) for 1 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until opaque. (The fish will turn a grayish brown.) Drain, and stir in remaining ingredients.
