My Delicious and Easy Tuna Dip is creamy, full of flavour and takes just minutes to prepare! When a homemade dip is this simple and tasty, there is no need for a shop-bought dip. In fact, it will likely be quicker to make it from store cupboard ingredients than go to the store.
1spring onion/scallion - some white and green part, roughly chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste, if neededSee Note 4
to garnish - parsley, spring onions, lemon zest and/or capersoptional
Drain your tuna of any excess oil.
Zest the lemon. Chop the parsley and spring onion.
Place all of the ingredients into a small blender, and blend until the dip has reached a smooth consistency.Check that the seasoning is to your taste. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper if necessary.
Serve the dip, spread in a shallow bowl with a garnish of parsley, spring/green onion top, capers or lemon zest. (Or all of the above!)
Use good quality tuna. I prefer to use tuna in oil for this dip, as it has the best flavour.
When removing the zest, avoid the white pith as it is bitter.
For the best flavour, I prefer flat-leaf parsley.
Check that the seasoning is to your taste, adding some salt, more pepper or lemon zest if necessary.
