Preparation Method: Tuna and Spinach Loaf Recipe
Lightly grease a medium oblong microwave-safe loaf dish.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl combine cooking oil and onion. Cover and cook on high power for 2-3 minute until onion softens; set aside.
Thinly slice half of lemon, cover and reserve. Squeeze juice from remaining half.
Remove frozen spinach from packet and place on microwave-safe plate. Heat on medium-low power (30%) for 5-6 minutes until defrosted, turning spinach over once. Squeeze spinach to remove liquid as much as possible.
In a large bowl, finely crumble the tuna. By use of hands, finely tear bread. Add bread to tuna with onion mixture, spinach, lemon juice, eggs, soured cream, Tabasco and salt and combine well. Transfer this mixture to the prepared loaf dish.
Covered and cook with grease-proof paper on medium power (70% power) for 12-13 minutes until knife inserted 2.5 cm from centre comes out clean. Rotate the dish halfway during cooking. Allow loaf to stand, covered on heatproof surface for 5 minutes.
Unfold loaf on a warmed serving platter. Garnish with reserved lemon slices and parsley sprigs to serve.
Unfolding the Loaf
