Thai tuna salad

I do love i) salads, ii) fish, and iii) Thai food, so this dish has always been a particular favourite.

As a quick, light lunch or a speedy supper it takes some beating.




Serves 1


  • 1 small yellow pepper, de-seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli – the bigger and hotter the better
  • about 1/4 of a cucumber, quartered lengthways and then thickly sliced
  • about 60g shredded white cabbage
  • about 40g shredded carrot
  • a 95g can tuna in water, drained
  • a handful of fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • a handful of Thai Basil
  • the juice of a lime
  • about 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • a small handful of cashew nuts


  • Place the prepared pepper, onion, chilli, cucumber, cabbage, and carrot into a salad bowl.
  • Flake in the tuna. Add the Thai Basil and the coriander (cilantro). Mix well.
  • Add the lime juice and the fish sauce. Mix well.
  • Scatter over the cashew nuts. Serve.
