Tuna Mayonnaise

This was not a recipe that I would see in my childhood yet it has become common since then. It is very versatile because the Tuna Mayonnaise can be used in several different ways. Simple to prepare then use to fill a sandwich, a baguette or a baked potato.


  • 1 185g Tuna Chunks in water or a 200g tuna steak.
  • 3-4 tablespoons of your favourite mayonnaise
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • 12 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 2 medium sized baked potatoes or bread of your choice
  • A few spring onions, finely sliced
  • Salad of your choice


  • If using fresh tuna steak then fry in a little olive oil for between five and ten minutes until it starts to flake. Place in a bowl and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Canned tuna simply needs to be drained and placed in a bowl.
  • Grind in black pepper to taste then break up the tuna.It can result in fairly small pieces or fairly large ones, depending on your taste.
  • Spoon in the mayonnaise and the tomato paste then mix well. Add a little salt if you feel that it is required.
  • Split between two baked potatoes then sprinkle spring onions over. Serve with a fresh salad for a nutritious meal.
  • Alternatively use in bread of your choice to create a delightful lunch.

Tuna Mayonnaise is a staple feature of many British pub menus because it is versatile and easy to prepare. It should give a good dose of that Omega-3 that is healthy too.
