Smoked Tuna Cocktail – Anything Looks Great in a Martini Glass!

Carole's Chatter: Smoked Tuna Cocktail - looks great in a martini glass

As a nod to the retro prawn cocktail, I did this cocktail using smoked tuna rather than prawns.  I hadn't had smoked tuna before and was very impressed with both its flavour and texture.  It was hand smoked – ie no chemicals so that was good.

At the bottom of the cocktail is a bed of shredded lettuce. The flakes of tuna were mixed up with cubes of avocado (with lemon juice on them to stop them browning), chopped red onion, some finely chopped chilli and salt and pepper.
The sauce drizzled over it was Sauce Marie Rose – a mix of ketchup (or tomato sauce as we call it), mayonnaise and cayenne pepper.
The cocktail was finished off with a garnish of chopped spring onion (scallion) – the green top bits.
