It has been a hectic week with all the projects in our plate that I still haven’t made the post about the sandwich spread I made last Friday. And our internet acted up again, which made working SO darn hard! But hey, I’m not here to rant about our crappy connection. :0
I’ve been dying to tell you all about the uber-easy-to-make and quite filling spicy tuna spread that we had for lunch last week. I was contemplating adding finely minced chilies in the mixture but thought better of it. That would have been going over-the-top-spicy! And it might not have been edible then, so I stuck with my trusty ground red pepper instead (I went pepper berserk and added the whole 3gram pack in!).
The result was a mildly-hot tuna spread that went great with the sweet pickle chips we added. The sweetness of the pickles actually took some of the heat off but the crunchiness more than made up for it. I might go with the red chilies next time. *wink* So for your middle-of-the-week sandwich craving, try this recipe:
Spicy Tuna Sandwich Spread
- 1 medium-sized onion, finely minced
- 1 can (180grams) Tuna flakes in vegetable oil
- 1 cup or a 220ml pack mayonnaise
- Ground red pepper, to taste
- Ground black pepper, to taste
- Salt, to taste
- 1 jar (325grams) sweet pickle chips (optional)
1. In a small pan, pour tuna contents and let simmer for 1 minute. Sprinkle some ground red pepper and black pepper for a little zing.
2. Add in the minced onion and simmer for another minute.
3. Remove tuna from pan and place in a medium-sized bowl. Pour in the mayonnaise and mix them all together. Season with salt to your preference.
4. Best served with toasted whole wheat bread and a smattering of sweet pickle chips. Yum!
Doesn’t that look scrumptious? You can even see the little dots the red pepper made! LOL
