My husband is not open to any fish other than salmon. He ate this dish without knowing what was in it. When he said he loved it, I told him that it was tunafish 🙂
This is yet another healthy dish with omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D. And who does not love a wholesome, healthy and delicious dinner?
500 gr. Tunafish (fresh, but I used canned tuna in olive oil)
8 small sardines (I found these italian sardines, they are lovely)
1 lemon (zest and juice)
Fresh red chilli (deseeded, cut in juliennes )
Salt and pepper (freshlygrounded)
Extra virgin olive oil
This is a simple and inexpensive dish, and I LOVED it.
Take the tuna out of the boxes and make flakes of it in a bowl. Crush the basil to a paste with salt and pepper, mix it well with the zest of one lemon and the juice. Now add 2-3 tbs of EVOO. Use this mixture to marinate the tuna.
In a pan add some EVOO and the sardines, fry them till they melt away. Now add the finely chopper garlic, chillies and the capers. Fry on low heat for 2 minutes, add tomatoes and tunafish. Cook for 5 minutes and put aside. Cook some pasta, then take the tunafish and mix it well with the pasta. Add some chopped coriander.
As you can see, this was easy breasy! The taste is sharp and tangy, the tunafish comes out smooth and lovely!
