Tuna and Potato Casserole
- Active Time 25m
- Total Time 13h
This traditional Basque dish has few ingredients but lots of flavor. Dried red bell peppers are the key.
- 2 pounds bonito tuna
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 2 small onions, finely chopped
- 2 green bell peppers, seeded and chopped
- 1 pound potatoes, cut into chunks
- Salt, to taste
- 4 dried red bell peppers, soaked for 12 hours
Remove the skin and bones of the bonito, then cut into chunks.
Heat the oil in a heatproof casserole or Dutch oven over low heat and fry the onions and green bell peppers until they start to soften. Add the potatoes, fry gently, then add enough water to cover. Cook for 30 minutes.
Saute the bonito in a small amount of oil in a skillet. Transfer to the casserole, add a little salt and cook for 10 minutes.
Puree the rehydrated red bell peppers and add to the casserole. Check the seasoning, then remove from the heat and allow to rest for a few minutes. Serve hot.
