I like fish, it is something I would like to eat more of, but other than a few rather straight uncomplicated bland recipes, plus its eternal expense, I do not often have some. When I first met by BFF from across the pond she introduced me to “Tuna Fish” as a super tasty lunch-able delight, there are three ways in which it can be enjoyed; First we have the ‘proper posh’, then there is the ‘posh’, and lastly there is the ‘cheats’ version.
The first two have the same preparation steps. You hard boil an egg or two [depending on quantity you want to end up with], deshell, slice and dice, add the drained can on tuna chunks, finely slice a spring onion, slice and dice a gherkin or cornichons, dribble in a splash on the vinegar, add a touch of dill and black pepper, a few tea spoons of mayonnaise and mix to a pate type consistency. Pop in the fridge to cool and settle.
Now Proper Posh is served on toasted bread with lettuce leaves, where as posh is just spread on bread.
Cheats version is to empty can of tune into a bowl, add a few tea spoons of tartar sauce and mix.
You get no prizes for guessing which version I have had for lunch today.
It reminds me of lazy sunny Sundays, crumbs in the bed, silly girl-talk and those halcyon days of contentment. Did fait bring a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye.
