If you get bored with the same old – same old tuna sandwich combos, here is something to add some oomph to your lunch.
Taramasalata almost the exactly the same calories as mayonnaise. It is made from salted and cured fish roe (usually cod) mixed with olive oil, lemon juice, and a starchy base of bread or potatoes. Some varieties include garlic, spring onions, or peppers.
- Tuna 1 tin (I prefer oil packed chunk)
- Taramasalata 2 Tbs (slightly more if you want creamier consistency)
- Shrimp (small precooked and shelled) 150 mg
- Black Ground Pepper pinch
- Capers (optional) 1 tsp
Drain the tuna and fork into a medium bowl. Drain any excess moisture from the shrimp (prawns) and add to the tuna. Add the pepper and capers (if used) and then stir in the taramasalata until evenly mixed.
Serve with iceberg lettuce and tomato slices in a sandwich or wrap. It makes 2-4 servings.
