Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.


  1. Place the tuna in a food processor. Add the capers, mayonnaise, milk, and lemon juice, and mix for a few seconds until a smooth consitency is obtained. Add a little extra milk if the sauce is too dense to your taste.

Following the tradition, this dish could be garnished with radish or carrot's rounds for a nicer presentation.
