Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle

Chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces

2 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiling water with a large pinch of salt and cook over a high heat for 10-15 min or until fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and return them to the pot

3 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

Meanwhile, re-boil a kettle

Chop the red gem lettuce in half width-ways and discard the stem

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half

Chop the black olives roughly

4 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

Add the drained potatoes to a baking tray and crush them gently with a fork

Sprinkle the capers over the crushed potatoes

Drizzle everything with olive oil, season with a pinch of salt and give everything a gentle mix up

Put the tray in the oven for 15-20 min, or until golden and crisp

5 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

While the potatoes are cooking, add the eggs to a pot of boiling water with a pinch of salt over a high heat (salt prevents the eggs from cracking)

Boil for an initial 4 min

After 4 min add the green beans and boil for a further 3-4 min or until the beans are tender

Once done, drain and run everything under cold water

6 Tuna Nicoise With Crispy Caper Potatoes

Meanwhile, combine the Dijon mustard and white wine vinegar with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large bowl – this is your Dijon vinaigrette
