A tuna sandwich can fill the gap any time - lunch box, tea time, party time - any occasion.
One tin of tuna will make sandwiches for four people - four rounds of two slices of bread.
Empty one 7oz/200g can of tuna into a bowl to make four sandwiches.
Add a tablespoon of mayonnaise.
Add a few twists of pepper and a shake of paprika if you like.
Stir the tuna mixture well with a fork.
Butter your bread and put a layer of finely sliced cucumber on the bottom slice.
Top with the tuna mixture and put the second slice on top to make a sandwich.
Cut the sandwich into four - I like triangles, some people like squares - it's a matter of choice.
You can see the lovely juicy tuna oozing out of the sandwich here!
Make sure that you have some paper towel nearby so that people can mop their hands - seafood sandwiches are often messy because mayonnaise is used quite a lot to bind the fillings.
Whilst fresh tuna is classed as an oily fish and so counts as an oily fish serving, canned tuna isn't. The canning process destroys the oils in the tuna - here's a pubMed article about tuna fish and the various cooking methods, explaining their findings into how much of the healthy oils are lost during the canning process.
However, canned tuna is full of protein and it's extremely tasty - it's also one of the fish that people who say 'I don't really like fish' will eat. It has no bones, it's meaty in texture and will go into many different dishes.
