Smoky Tuna Pilaf For One


Smoked Tuna Slices from John West make a delicious addition to this rice pilaf.

Prep time:5 mins

Cook time:15 mins

Serves: 1


  • 125g can John West Tuna Slices-Smoked in Olive Oil
  • 1 cup water
  • Turmeric (see instructions for quantity)
  • 1/3 cup long grain rice
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup frozen Birds Country Harvest Eye Peas, Corn & Capsicum


Step 1

Pour the liquid from the John West Tuna Slices into a small saucepan. Add water and a shake of turmeric and bring to the boil. Add rice and garlic, cover and simmer for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Stir in frozen Birds Eye Country Harvest Peas, Corn & Capsicum, cook for 3 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

Step 3

Remove from heat and season to taste, gently fold through tuna slices, cover and stand for 1 minute before serving.

Tasty Tip!

Turmeric is used to colour the rice, use only small amounts – even ¼ of a teaspoon would be too much in this recipe. For added ‘warmth’ to this recipe add a little ground chilli or paprika.
