Here is an quick lunch option, that is tasty, and also makes for a good “pot-luck” side offering. It uses tinned tuna (and I recommend using oil packed for the flavour), and hard boiled eggs. It is similar to deviled eggs, but with a little less fat as the number of yolks is reduced). I have also found that this recipe works just as well with flaked tuna as it does with chunks.
- Tuna 160 g tin (oil packed)
- Eggs 6
- Mayonnaise 2 Tbs (I used light option)
- Onion 1/2 finely chopped
- Gherkin 1 medium to large finely chopped
- Salt pinch
- Pepper pinch
Hard boil the eggs in salted water for 8-10 minutes. Cool and shell. Slice eggs in half and remove the yolks. Set aside 4 yolks for other salads or recipes. In a bowl break up the remaining two yolks with a fork, and add the chopped onion and gherkin. Drain the tuna and add it to the egg mixture. Add seasoning and mayonnaise and mix well with the fork. Spoon a the mixture into the 12 egg while halves, filling the yolk cavities, and over filling as the tuna mixture allows. Serve as a side, or tapas type dish.
