  1. In North Africa this tuna mixture is used to fill savory pastries, but I know in Israel they also use it in sandwiches. And guess what? No tomatoes.

    1 14 oz can tuna
    small bunch of chopped coriander
    juice of 1 lemon
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne or chilli pepper
    2 tablespoons capers, squeezed to remove vinegar
    10 black olives pitted and cut in small pieces
    3 hardboiled eggs, chopped

    Mash all together and you've got a Tunisian/Moroccan tuna salad.
