Gastronomical Satiety: Tumultuous Toasted Tuna

I can cook, quite well actually. Or so I think until I go to one of my neighbour’s soiree’s and I’m put to shame by the culinary genius on display there. So I may not be a cuisine connoisseur like her, or even a culinary queen like her, or a food guru like him…but I have my moments.
I will not offer any of the usual renditions, as many of them may have already been done and no one really wants to know how I make Akni or Chicken Curry.

So instead I will post my whacky, weird and whimsical recipes that are usually either made up on the spur of the moment or are improvisations of recipes stored in the archives of my mind from some or other show I must have watched at some point in time.

Today’s recipe includes the following ingredients:
1 Can of Tuna
1 Small Onion
Olive Oil
1 Small Tomato
Feta Cheese
Parsley (Fresh or Dried)
Ground Peppercorns
Bread and Butter

Drain the Tuna from all the liquid in the can. Fry the onion in a little olive oil and drain completely once its golden brown. Add the fried onion, peeled and diced tomato, 2 tablespoons of Mayo, 1 finely diced/crumbled disk of feta cheese, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of ground pepper, a few diced up sprigs of parsley and a pinch of salt to the tuna. Mix well for 2 to 3 minutes and place a generous portion on buttered bread for toasting. Toast until golden brown and enjoy.

Ingredients to be used at one’s discretion and according to preferences.


  1. Lekker!
    Now next time, take a pic or two and you can do a guest post on

    I really want to inhale some of this tuna right now.

  2. I had this about an hour ago minus the tomato - it was good and I just made it up last night so its the first time I got to taste it :) The feta kinda melts when its toasting & becomes creamy mush...yummy! :D

    I forgot to state that the onion has to be chopped and diced before frying.

    My camera is still being repaired by Sony, after breaking it on the ship :( But will definitely take pics in future

  3. Yummy! This sounds divine. I will have to try this toastie out!

    Thanks for the cool link, by the way :-)

  4. Mj doesn't do seafood. I can't say yeuck because my mum will shout me and put me on a guilt trip as she reminds me of starving kids in somalia. Poverty is bad here as well- i don't think we need to import starving images. Hmmm.

  5. Food guru :D . I love that! We need to do a collab soon chica

  6. I've always maintained that I don't eat cockroaches from the sea, anything with tentacles as well as things that stay pink AFTER you've cooked it.

    But I've made the exception for Tuna, Hake, Kingklip and Haddock. And I actually like them :P

  7. So Azra,When are you cooking for me?

  8. Mini, when I'm not stuck with Financial Reporting according to IFRS and Contractual Law assignments :P

    PS. Are you a boy or a girl? And how old are you? SO I can figure out a menu :P

  9. sounds yummy. I do one with apple, banana, and some roasted sesame, mustard and sunflower seeds. brilliant on wholwheat toast.
