An inventive way to give life to a plain potato.

Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins
Serves: 4

Tuna, Lime & Coriander


4 medium size potatoes (175g-225g/6-8oz each)
2 x tins tuna in springwater
1 lime
1 handful fresh coriander, leaves picked, stalks chopped
(optional) 1 red pepper


1. Scrub the potatoes, then dry and prick each one several times with a sharp knife.

2. Microwave Method: Cook one potato (225g/8oz) for 6 minutes on full power (800W), turn half way through cooking. Allow to stand for 1 – 2 minutes before serving. If cooking more than one potato at a time you need to increase the cooking time accordingly.

3. Oven Method: Rub a few drops of olive oil into the potato skin, place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 on a baking tray with salt sprinkled around the potato. Bake for 1¼ hours or until soft.

4. When potato is ready, open the tins of tuna, in a bowl mix with lime juice and fresh coriander. Serve the mix on top of the jacket. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
