Servings: 6 people
- 2 cans skipjack tuna
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 white potatoes cleaned, peeled, and diced
- 2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1 piquillo pepper chopped
- 1 tablespoon capers
- 1/2 cup manzanilla olives
- 1 tablespoon pickled red peppers
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 teaspoon latin spices (sazon latino)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 egg beaten
- 2 pie crusts
In a skillet saute the potatoes with the garlic. Then add the canned tuna and combine. Continue cooking and add the piquillo peppers, the capers, the pickled red peppers, and the olives.
Season with the spices and add the tomato puree — cook for 10-15 minutes, and set aside.
Use a pie glass pan and add the pie crust. With a fork make some punches for allowing the dough to cook thoroughly.
Add the tuna mix you made, preferably cold or at room temperature. Close the pie with the second layer of pie crust. Beat an egg and add eggwash for a golden finish.
Bake the pie at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown. Serve immediately and pair with a salad.
