Friday lazy evening sandwich..... Open tuna melt variation

Another Friday sandwich recipe, I love these because I don't feel hugely guilty when I eat them and they take such little effort to make, it's shameless but absolutely perfect for those lazy Friday afternoons after a busy week when all you really want to do is sit and do nothing infront of the T.V - 20 minutes and your supper is ready. Not that I am encouraging alcohol drinking, but it happens to be perfect pre-drinks food.

 
Open Tuna Melts
 
black olive ciabatta
400g tuna in brine
3 tbsp rinsed capers
1/2 lemon
5 tbsp flat leafed parsley
black pepper
6 tbsp mayonnaise
150g grated cheese
 
1. Heat the ready to bake ciabatta, as per package instructions. In a large in mixing bowl place the tuna, capers, zest and juice of the lemon and the parsley, season with black pepper and stir in the mayonnaise.
 
2. Preheat your grill to a medium setting, split the warmed loaf horizontally and then in half, top each 1/4 with the tuna and grated cheese and bake under the grill for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted, bubbling and golden. Serve with a crisp green salad.
