Chef Charlotte Langley's "Tunacado" recipe

Serves 2–4

Preparation time 15 minutes

Cooking time 1 minute


  • 1 tin of Scout Tuna Garden Pesto
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 medium-sized tomato, sliced
  • 4–6 pickled jalapenos
  • ¼ cup aioli
  • Flatbread
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  1. Mix the tuna garden pesto with the aioli until it reaches a very smooth texture, almost like tonnato sauce.
  2. On your flatbread, spread the avocado slices evenly so you get some in each bite.
  3. Add sliced tomatoes and pickled jalapenos.
  4. Smear tuna on the other side, and for a fun twist on the Tunacado, drizzle a little hot sauce of your choice.
  5. Press together and griddle in a panini press until super crispy and toasted.
  6. Wrap in parchment paper and enjoy!
