Step 3

Grate the yolks with a grater.

Step 4

Crumble the tuna.

Step 5. Prepare the mayonnaise!

In the glass of the mixer, place 1 egg, a little bit of vinegar, salt and the 250 ml of olive oil. Mix it well with the blender/mixer.

“The trick to prepare a good mayonnaise is to not move the blender while mixing. Wait until the mayonnaise gets a good consistency and then you can start moving the mixer slowly. That is the way to get a homogeneous mayonnaise”

Step 6.

Mix the mayonnaise with the tuna. Thereafter add the parsley chopped and mix it well.

Step 7.

With a tiny spoon, fill up the whites of 6 eggs with the tuna mixture. Leave the 2 whites of 1 egg for later.

Step 8. Presentation!

Draw a line of mayonnaise above the eggs. Afterward, cover the eggs with the grated yolks. Then, place half of the olive on top of the eggs. Finally, grate the whites that we left before and cover the eggs with them.

Enjoy your Spanish tapa with eggs and tuna!
