Tuna and Sweetcorn Flan

Rating 4-0 out of 5 - Most cooks definitely will make this recipe again

Recipe by  

Tuna is as excellent in a flan (an open pie) as it is in a salad. Don't be afraid of the idea of making a little pastry; it is, in fact, much easier than it at first sounds. This dish can be served hot with French Fries, or cold either as a snack or with a salad.

If you're concerned about the marine environment, many supermarkets now stock pole-and-line tuna, which is caught in a way that doesn't kill other species (like dolphins)

to serve 4:
6 oz
plain flour (all purpose flour)
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon

tuna (in brine)
8 oz

¼ pint

How to Cook Tuna and Sweetcorn Flan

  1. Make the pastry, adding the grated Cheddar cheese before the final mixing in the bowl. Roll the pastry out and use it to line an 8" (20cm) flan dish.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan and gently fry the onion pieces until they are soft (about 5 minutes) then place them at the bottom of the flan case (the pastry). Drain the liquid from the tuna can and fake the tuna into small pieces. Drain the tomatoes and chop each tomato into about 4 or 5 pieces. Place the tuna, tomato and sweetcorn on top of the onion n the flan case.
  3. Beat the eggs and cream together and then add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Pour this mixture over the other ingredients in the flan case and cook the whole flan in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for 25-30 minutes until it is golden and firm (and very, very tasty).

If you can find a small tin of sweetcorn with peppers, the addition of the peppers adds a nice touch of colour to this flan.

Really yummy quick meal (I used ready-made pastry!) The nice thing about this is that you can easily change the ingredients, making it just how you want. I think next time I will add a more varied range of vegetables.
