The combination of the savoury from the tuna, the sweetness of the ripe sweet plantain and the freshness of the herbs and lime is just classic Venezuelan creole cuisine.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).
Step 2
The first thing we need to do is a classic sofrito so we cook in a hot pan with some Olive Oil (to taste) or vegetable oil the Red Chili Pepper (1) and White Onion (1), Once they are soft, grate the Garlic (4 clove) and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
Step 3
Then add the Canned Tuna (480 gram) which has been previously drained of any liquid or oil, and mix well. Season with Salt and Pepper (to taste) to taste and leave to cook for another 5 minutes. Then set aside to cool down.
Step 4
In the meantime slice the Plantain (2) and fry in abundant Vegetable Oil (to taste). Place the fried plantain over some kitchen paper to absorb the extra oil.
Step 5
While the plantain is cooling down chop Fresh Cilantro (1 handful) and Dried Dill Weed (1 handful). Add it to the tuna with the juice of Lemon (1).
Step 6
Once done, we can start to put together the dish by oiling a baking tray and making the layers of plantain, tuna and Feta Cheese (150 gram).
Step 7
Add the Free Range Egg (9) to a bowl and beat well, they will act as the bonding agent of the dish. Then add them to the bake, with a spoon separate the side a little bit so the eggs can sip through to the bottom. Leave the tray to rest for 5 minutes so the eggs can also sip through in the middle.
Step 8
Bake in a preheated oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot and enjoy!
