  • 3 oz Blue Harbor wild Albacore tuna 1 pouch - I suggest with a touch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon peas eg frozen, defrosted
  • 1 tablespoon corn eg frozen, defrosted
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice approx


  • Drain any excess water from the tuna and mix in a small bowl with the mayonnaise and pepper. Stir through the peas and corn and set aside.
  • Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and peel each half. Squeeze on a little lime juice to each side and rub in (just so it’s lightly coated).
  • Stuff each half of the avocado with half of the tuna mixture and serve, eg with a little simple salad on the side.
