    My recipe is:

    • Deliciously fishy


    Why should your recipe win?
    My recipe should win because it is healthy and easy to make. The tuna fish contain healthy fish oil and omega3 which is good for the body. The cherry tomatoes and basil provide colour, flavour and vitamins. It is good for brian, skin and heart too.
