What to do with a can of tuna!

Solomon Islands is the land of canned tuna...

It is one of the food staples here and a big industry.

So very easy to come buy some good quality cans of tuna.

I've always thought canned tuna was your pantry desperate measure of what to put on a sandwich...
But since living here and trying to figure out something interesting to do with it, I've discovered it's a
delicacy to many!

This lead me to a fantastic and easy Italian pasta recipe.

Here it is...

Linguine con Tonno, Capperi e Olive

Linguine with Tuna, Capers and Olives
(Julia Della Croce)

Serves 4


1 x 175g can tuna packed in olive oil, drained and flaked
125ml extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
125g mixed green and black sharply flavoured olives
3 tbsp drained small capers
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
5 anchovy fillets in olive oil, drained and cut into small pieces
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
500g linguine
Salt, to taste

1.  In a serving bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce, tossing thoroughly to distribute
them evenly, then set aside.

2.  Cook the linguine until al dente, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Drain the pasta, rinse it
rapidly and toss with the sauce in the bowl. Serve immediately.
