Fiery Tuna Pie

Last week, I organized a seafood night with the people from work. It has been a while that we didn't cook as a group because of the final exam period. Seafood dishes are what we needed to reward ourselves for hard and painful study.

My Mexican friend, Mon made a tuna pie on puff pastry with a twist of spiciness.  If you can't handle the heat, omit the jalapeno peppers.
