Tuna Confit Salad


Another brilliant recipe from Yotam Ottolenghi. I love the colour of the spuds boiled with turmeric.

My only changes: used a few jalapenos instead of piquillo peppers (which I couldn't get hold of), didn't toss it (didn't want to break up my gorgeous tuna and beautiful boiled eggs), didn't add extra salt (it's got olives, anchovies, capers and preserved lemon in it, extra salt is ridiculous).

A very delicious summer supper.

I bookmarked some Ottolenghi recipes awhile ago - really need to try one of them sometime!

I wish I was as weary traveller and dropped by your house on the chance supper was on! Looks delicious, especially the potatoes.

Great colour in the egg yolks. Like the turmeric potatoes as well

Cranky - I can recommend cooking spuds that way.

Mother - I was delighted with how those eggs turned out. Perfectly cooked!

Oh how festive that salad looks! I Love the notion of coloring the potatoes with turmeric. Very cool...

Thanks for sharing...

This looks like the perfect salad--I love everything in it. Boiling the potatoes with the turmeric is a great idea too. ;-)

Foodycat said...

Kat - I will have to make it again just so I can have lunch in the garden!

SSS - it's so delicious, like a nicoise on holidays.

Louise - the turmeric adds a lovely subtle flavour, too.

Deb - you could leave the tuna out for your vegan month!
