Recipe

This version of the diner classic is enlivened with the tangy flavors of red pepper, lemon, and ketchup.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: &Nbsp;15 Mins
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 English muffins
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 6-oz (170g) cans albacore tuna, drained
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 6 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 large, thin slices of sharp Cheddar cheese, halved diagonally

Directions

1. Position a broiler rack 6in (15cm) from the heat and preheat. Split the muffins and toast.

2. Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the red pepper, scallions, and shallots. Cook, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Add the tuna, breaking up the chunks with a fork. Cook for about 1 minute, until the tuna is heated through. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the ketchup, 2 tbsp of the mayonnaise, and the lemon zest.

3. Spread the remaining mayonnaise over the cut sides of the muffins. Spread 4 muffin halves with the tuna mixture and arrange the cheese triangles on top.

4. Grill until the cheese melts. Top with the remaining 4 muffin halves. Serve at once.

Notes

Good with a selection of your favorite pickles.
