tuna recipe - charlotte's tuna melt

Serving Size: 2

Makes: 4-6

Submitted by:



1 Large jewel sweet potato (thoroughly washed and sliced into 10 1⁄2 inch pieces)

1⁄4 TSP Pink peppercorn salt (or Himalayan sea salt)

1 TSP Organic olive oil



1 (5 oz.) Can of Safe Catch tuna

1⁄2 Cup Fresh mozzarella cheese, diced

2 TBSP Fresh scallions, chopped

1 TSP Freshly chopped sage

1 TSP Flavor God Garlic Lovers (or favorite spice blend)

2 TBSP Mayonnaise

1 TBSP Harissa red pepper sauce



2 TBSP Shredded parmesan

2 TBSP Cilantro leaves, chopped


Toss potatoes with olive oil and salt. Place potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 35-37 minutes or until potatoes are tender (turning once).

While potatoes cook, combine all ingredients for the filling (make sure you don’t break up the tuna too much- you want to have nice pieces of tuna in the filling).

Remove potatoes from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 400°. Top each potato with 1 Tbsp of filling. Return potatoes to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese has melted.

While the potatoes cook, stir together cilantro and parmesan cheese. Finish the potatoes with 1⁄2 tsp of parmesan cheese mixture and return to the oven.

Bake for an additional 7-10 minutes or until the parmesan cheese is melted and the crust is a golden brown.

Serve immediately with romaine lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and organic olive oil.
