    Amalfi Tuna Salad with Poached Eggs

    This glorious warm leafy salad with crispy garlic croutons makes a lovely relaxed weekend lunch. It's simple to make and ready in just half an hour. For the best flavour, use Waitrose Lightmeat Tuna in Olive Oil; they are large meaty pieces of full-flavoured fish and are exclusive to Waitrose.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • ½ pack Waitrose 6 Garlic & Cheese Slices (from the chiller cabinet, with the garlic breads)
    • 2 medium free range eggs
    • 190g jar Amalfi Fillets of Tuna in Olive Oil
    • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
    • 110g bag Waitrose Aromatic Herb Salad
    • 2 tbsp Waitrose Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Lemon Fresh Dressing


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Place the 3 garlic and cheese slices on a baking tray and bake for 6-8 minutes until golden. Allow to cool.
    2. Meanwhile, drain the tuna fillets, reserving the oil. Place the tuna and red onion in a large salad bowl and arrange the salad leaves on top. Tear the garlic and cheese slices roughly into croutons and scatter over the salad leaves.
    3. Place the reserved tuna oil in a small jug or jar and add the dressing. Whisk or shake well to mix the salad dressing.
    4. Bring a small pan of water to the boil. Break the eggs into a cup, one at a time, and carefully pour them into the boiling water. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the eggs to continue to poach in the hot water for 5 minutes. Drain and reserve.
    5. Pour the salad dressing over the salad and toss everything together lightly. Divide between two serving plates and top each one with a warm poached egg. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
