I love Tuna. I think it gets a bad reputation but I think it's so delicious and perfect to keep in the fridge to eat with crudites or to throw on top of a salad or sandwich for quick lunches. And with this recipe, I tried to pack as much flavor as possible in to make it super tangy and delicious as some Tuna can be a little bland.
I grew up being a pescatarian so Tuna was part of my diet on the reg. And as long as you make sure to pick high quality, wild-caught tuna, you should be ok to consume it regularly.
I like to use the Tonnino or Ortiz Tuna. But Wild Planet and Genova also have delicious, tuna I would highly recommend.
Here is my recipe, a great weekly staple to keep in your fridge.
You will need:
2 Jars of good quality tuna
1/4 Cup mayo
1/2 Small shallot (or one large)
Zest of one lemon
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Handful of parsley
Handful of dill
2 tbsp Capers
Drizzle of olive oil
Dash of hot sauce
Crackers, cucumber, carrot or celery sticks for dipping. I like Ella's Flats seedy crackers.
Pop it all in a blender together and pulse until combined. Place in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to serve on a salad or as a dip. Can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.
