Great recipe.

I just added some chilli flakes to give it a little kick!

Quick & easy to make. Olives would make a tasty addition.

Very tasty, and easy to do on a budget. I didn't have rocket so I used radicchio, which was delicious.

A fantastic dish, cooked it for a lovely night in with my boyfriend,

to make it even less calorific I used a mere 2 tbsp of olive oil instead of 4 and replaced the tuna in olive oil with tuna in spring water (tuna in brine is also fine).

I also used only half a lemon as a whole lemon makes it rather sour for me. Chilli flakes can be added to the frying pan with garlic for a little added heat.

Really quick & easy. Also add a red chilli. Great Friday night meal when you don't feel like cooking.

Very nice. I added some chilli to give it a bit more flavour. A good store cupboard, after work recipe.
