Meanwhile, proceed with the tuna. Wash the parsley and chop it. Put the tuna on a plate and grate the lemon zest over it, squeeze the lemon juice, add ground pepper and 1 tablespoon of oil. Season the tuna in the marinade and make sure it absorbs the juice.

Tips

The potatoes can be steamed, microwaved, or boiled. The important thing is that they remain fairly firm, and do not break up too much when you mix them.

You can enrich the dish with fresh vegetables, such as tomatoes, carrots or green beans, and you can omit the onion if you don’t like it.

You can also use canned tuna, or keep some frozen tuna in the freezer and use at your convenience.

Instead of tuna, you can use mackerel fillets. If you don’t like mint, you can put basil, thyme or oregano.
