Recipe - how do you make it

Smos tuna is the Flemish version of the Dutch tuna salad. Smoshing means messing, spilling but also fiddling, which in this case results in a tasty scoop salad. There are no quantities indicated with the dish. Rumble yourself, as long as you process the tuna in large pieces.


Recipe - steps

  • 1 Turn equal parts of mayonnaise and crème fraîche into a light mayonnaise.
  • 2 Season the mayonnaise to taste with some salt and pepper.
  • 3 Spoon the pieces of tuna with the carrot grater, pearl onions and gherkin through the mayonnaise.
  • 4 Spoon the smos on roasted sandwiches and garnish generously with cress.
