This Paleo Sweet Chili tuna recipe goes well with salads, on any type of potatoes, with vegetables as well as a snack by itself. If you add the flavors yourself instead of buying it already made you’ll eliminate the worries of added ingredients you may not want to eat. I used plain tuna in olive oil. The sweet chili is a combination of honey, herbs, chili flakes and tomato and onion. Serving this on a baked sweet potato makes a very tasty food combination.
Paleo Sweet Chili Tuna Recipe
2 to 4 servings
425 g can of plain tuna, half a large diced red or brown onion, half a large diced tomato, 1 teaspoon dried basil or other herbs of choice, 1 teaspoon dried chili, 1 teaspoon paprika, half a tablespoon honey, 3 tablespoons olive oil
In a pan in about a tablespoon or two olive oil fry the onions for about a minute, then add the tomatoes and leave it cook for a further minute, so they are still chunky.
Add the paprika and honey and mix. Take off the heat and set aside ready to mix with the tuna
Drain the tuna well and put it in a bowl. Add the chili, herbs, fried onion and tomato mix and the remaining olive oil. Mix very well. Add more olive oil if needed. Serve on a salad or baked potatoes.
If you’re having your tuna with baked sweet potatoes you’ll need to do the sweet potatoes first as they will take longer to cook..
To bake the sweet potatoes just wash them very well and bake in a preheated oven, covered in baking paper for an hour at 22o degrees celcius
When they are done just cut them open and drizzle on olive oil and top with the sweet chili tuna. Serve with any vegetables of choice. I had sauteed spinach.
Enjoy the spicy sweetness of this tasty combination
