Drain away most of the liquid from the tuna then transfer to a medium bowl and use a fork to separate the tuna into flakes.
160 grams tuna

This recipe benefits for making around 30 minutes in advance so the flavours develop.
Use a good quality canned tuna in olive oil. Pull the tab to open the can slightly, then press the lid gently against the tuna to drain most of the liquid away before transferring the tuna to a mixing bowl.
Keep the tuna mix in a sealed box in the fridge for up to 3 days. It is not suitable for freezing.
