You haven’t always got to get in front of the stove to make delicious, high protein and healthy recipes. You can swap the tuna for tinned Mackerel or Sardines.
1 person for a full meal or makes 2/3 snacks
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 0 minutes
1 tin of Tuna (try to used tuna in spring water or olive oil)
6 mini sweet peppers
3 spring onions finely sliced
1 heaped tbsp. light mayonnaise
Optional – finely chopped coriander, salt and pepper to taste
Drain the Tuna and flake into a bowl. Add the finely sliced spring onions and mayonnaise and then season to taste.
Slice the tops off of the top of the peppers and remove any seeds.
Once combined, use a teaspoon to spoon the mixture into the hollow peppers.
Either eat straight away or store in the fridge for up to 2 days to have as a high protein snack.
TIP – Rotating your protein sources is always healthy and as Tuna should only be consumed a few times a week due to high levels of mercury, simply swap the Tuna for tinned Mackerel or Sardines. Remember to keep the bones in these little tins of fish; they are soft and packed with calcium.
