Mexican tuna nicoise

Mexican tuna nicoise

Well, originally we were due to have tuna salad this evening however it was pretty chilly out and I got to thinking what can I do to pep this up, and this is what I came up with and boy was it tasty....
  • 1 red pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 2 tbsp of kankun chipotle sauce
  • 1/4 block of feta cheese (cubed)
  • 4 tbsp sweetcorn
  • 1 jar of line caught tuna
  • Couple of handfuls of pea shoots
  • Handful of sliced black olives
  • 2 soft boiled eggs
  • Drizzle of rapeseed vinaigrette

Spread the kankun sauce over the flour tortillas, place on a baking tray and place in the oven at 200 degrees for around 10 minutes.  Once done remove and leave to one side to cool slightly.  Bring to the boil a small pan of water and boil the eggs for 5 and a half minutes, then rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process.  

Scatter the pea shoots over the tortillas along with the sweetcorn and sliced peppers.  Break up the tuna and place on top of the tortilla and crumble the feta on the top and scatter the black olives over it.  Carefully peel the soft boiled egg and place on top of each tortilla.  Drizzle with the rapeseed dressing (or dressing of choice) cut into the egg so the yolk oozes out and enjoy.

I really hope you enjoy this as much as we did, was something different and spur of the moment and it worked.
