This version of the diner classic is enlivened with the tangy flavors of red pepper, lemon, and ketchup.
The Illustrated Kitchen Bible: 1,000 Family Recipes from Around the World
|4 English muffins||2 - 6 oz (170 g) cans albacore tuna, drained|
|1 tbsp olive oil||2 tbsp ketchup|
|1 red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped||6 tbsp mayonnaise|
|4 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced||Grated zest of 1 lemon|
|2 shallots, finely chopped||4 large, thin slices sharp Cheddar cheese, halved diagonally|
Position a broiler rack 6 inches (15 cm) from the heat and preheat. Split the muffins and toast.
Heat the oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the red pepper, scallions, and shallots. Cook, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Add the tuna, breaking up the chunks with a fork. Cook for about 1 minute, until the tuna is heated through. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the ketchup, 2 tbsp of the mayonnaise, and the lemon zest.
Spread the remaining mayonnaise over the cut sides of the muffins. Spread 4 muffin halves with the tuna mixture and arrange the cheese triangles on top.
Grill until the cheese melts. Top with the remaining 4 muffin halves. Serve at once.
