nice and simple! I rinsed the tuna to take out some of the salty flavour. - 21 Jul 2008

My mum used to make this all the time when we were young and I had totally forgotten about this dish until I saw it on the site. I was so happy to find it because it is really good.Thanks so much Amanda! - 21 Jul 2008

Took shortcuts. I was doing lunch for myself and used some tomato puree and gently added boiling water - in place of tinned tomato. Also tried the lemon zest and I added a good amount of lemon juice... have to say - its delish!! - 27 Feb 2009
