For the tuna crunch

To serve (optional)

  • grated cheddar or mature crumbly cheese
  • coleslaw (to make your own, find a recipe below)
  • sliced spring onions
  • cucumber slices
  • radishes
  • crunchy dressed salad leaves


  • STEP 1

    Pierce each potato a few times with a sharp knife. Rub with a little oil and season the skin with salt. Heat the oven or air-fryer to 200C/180C fan/gas 4 and cook for around 1 hr 20 mins in the oven or 45 mins in the air-fryer – you can reduce this time by up to half if you microwave the potatoes for 5 mins beforehand. They should be crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, make the tuna crunch. Combine the drained tuna with the celery, onion, pepper, mayo, mustard, lemon zest and juice. Season with plenty of black pepper.

  • STEP 3

    Cut a cross in the top of each potato and add 1 tsp of butter to each one. Serve with a bowl of the tuna crunch salad, and a selection of your chosen accompaniments on the side.
