Salty tuna and mayonnaise, combined with a sweet, juicy canned peach half is a bit unusual, but the combination of flavors works! Serve it as a tapa or a first course. Since the peaches are canned, it is a recipe that can be prepared year-round. It is so easy that takes about 5 minutes to prepare.

Another version, which adds a few more ingredients to the tuna stuffing appears below the recipe, and includes olives, canned salmon and chopped prawns.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (15-16 oz) peach halves in syrup
  • 7 oz (198 gr) tuna in oil
  • mayonnaise
  • 8 walnut halves (optional)

Preparation:

Open the peaches and tuna, and drain both.

Flake the tuna in a small bowl and spoon in a heaping tablespoon of mayonnaise. Mix well, adding mayonnaise if needed.

Coarsely chop walnut halves.

Place the peach halves cut side up on a serving plate. Spoon the tuna mixture on to each peach half and sprinkle with walnuts. Serve cold.

Mari's version:

This version adds a few more ingredients to the tuna filling.

  1. Reduce the tuna by a half.
  2. Add a half dozen pitted, sliced black olives.
  3. Add 3 oz flaked canned salmon.
  4. Add 2-3 prawns (cooked, peeled and chopped).
  5. Mix with mayonnaise.

Mound on peach halves and serve.
