Sweet Chilli Tuna Melts

23 Oct

This is one of my favorite lunches. Personally, I think tuna and sweet chilli are just a match made in heaven. They compliment each other perfectly. I know most of the time tuna is mixed with mayonnaise but I absolutely, without a doubt HATE mayonnaise. Believe me, I have tried it on several occasions and I just gag. I would love it if I liked mayonnaise, it is so difficult not liking mayonnaise. Pretty much every pre-made sandwich or tuna salad or potato salad has mayonnaise. It makes everything so difficult. Okay, that’s the end of the rant. Very sorry. I hope this recipe makes up for it!

Sweet Chilli Tuna Melts (Serves 1)

2 slices of bread (Any sort of bread such as ciabatta, panini, baps etc.)

sweet chilli sauce

sweetcorn, drained

1/2 can tuna in brine, drained

1/2 bag of mozzarella, sliced thinly

sprinkle of chilli flakes

1 spring onion, finely chopped

  • Preheat the grill to medium/high
  • Pop the 2 slices of bread in the toaster and toast very lightly, just so that it is barely even browned.
  • Spread a thin layer of sweet chilli sauce over one side of each of the bread slices.
  • Sprinkle sweetcorn over the 2 slices in an even layer and then add the tuna, arranging also in an even layer.
  • Next arrange the mozzarella slices so that as much of the slices are covered.
  • Put the 2 slices under the grill until the mozzarella is just melted.
  • Remove, arrange on a plate and sprinkle with chilli flakes and spring onion.
