Red Pepper Tuna Melt

2 pointed red peppers (or bell peppers work just as well)

1 tin tuna

1 red onion

2oz sharp cheddar (grated and keep a bit aside to top before baking)

2 heaped tbsps. mayo

1 tbsp. chilli flakes

Salt and pepper

Serves two.

  • Preheat oven to 200°c
  • Combine the tuna, onion, mayo, chilli flakes, grated cheese, salt and pepper together.
  • Halve pepper and remove seeds and the internal membrane. Stuff with the tuna mixture.
  • Place in an oven-proof dish (I don’t usually grease it, but you can if you need to) and sprinkle over remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15mins until golden brown and hot throughout.

This is great served on its own or with a garnish of fresh rocket. If you use the pointed peppers it makes the finished product look a bit like a fish.
