One year ago I visited a small, hidden pub in Yorkshire where I was served a jacket potato with the nicest tuna mayonnaise topping I had ever had. So, naturally, I decided that I needed to recreate the experience. After some time in the kitchen, experimenting with seasoning and added ingredients, I came up with a simple recipe for the perfect tuna mayonnaise.
You will need:
- 1 can of tuna in spring water
- 1 red onion
- Mayonnaise (light or regular)
- Mixing bowl (I have used a colander in the past but have found that you lose a lot of the mayo!)
First drain the tuna and add it to the mixing bowl (this is where the colander would come in handy!)
Next dice the onion and approximately 8 slices of cucumber (depending on the size of the onion). Personally I like the amount of cucumber and onion to be equal so I try to use the same quantity of each. Season to taste with both the salt and pepper.
Now add the mayonnaise (the amount you add is completely up to you), until you get a consistency that you’re satisfied with.
Finally mix it all together – voila! A perfect tuna mayonnaise.
Serve on a crisp, hot jacket potato – my absolute favourite!
