Ingredients:  
4 cups of cooked flaked fish, can be tuna, halibut, salmon,sole, trout, even crab, lobster or shrimp.
1 1/2 cup peas (can be frozen, but do not under any circumstances use canned!!) 2/c shredded cheese. Again the cheese you use depends on the seafood. I use cheddar with tuna, halibut, and sole, but I use a mild white cheese (Like gouda,or monterey Jack) with the salmon, crab, shrimp or lobster. 1 c celery sliced, 1 to 1 1/2 c mayo, 1/3 cup sliced onions (I use green onions) 3/4 c bread crumbs, 3 TBS sesame seeds,salt and pepper.
1 can of refrigerator crescent rolls
Cucumber Sauce: Mix together 1/2 cup grated squeezed dry English cucumber with 1/2 cup each sour cream and mayonaise, 1 tsp chopped chives and 1 tsp chopped dill. Season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

Personal Notes:
My Mom has always made tuna casserole this way. I never had the other kind with the noodles in it. It wasn't till much later that I started playing around with the recipe, mainly because Dirk was keeping me in all manner of fish. It's fabulous with halibut, and decadent with crab. It's great even if all you have is tuna. Sole produces a delicate dish, and the salmon is robust and hearty. Experiment to see which is your favorite!!
