Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL)
vegetable oil
1
onion, finely chopped
1
jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
1
small green pepper, chopped
1 tbsp (15 mL)
each jerk seasoning and all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL)
milk
2 cans (170 g each)
Clover Leaf Flaked Light Tuna Packed in Water, drained
1/2 tsp (2 mL)
hot sauce (or to taste)
1/4 tsp (1 mL)
each salt and pepper
4
10-inch (25 cm) roti, chapatti or whole-wheat tortillas
1/2 cup (125 mL)
chopped tomato
2 tbsp (30 mL)
finely chopped fresh coriander leaves or green onion

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the onion, jalapeno, green pepper and jerk seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Sprinkle over the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Stirring constantly, pour in the milk and bring to a simmer. Stir in the tuna, hot sauce, salt and pepper; simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce is thickened and tuna is heated through.
  3. Divide the tuna mixture evenly between the roti. Sprinkle with tomato and coriander. Fold in sides of roti and then roll up from the bottom to encase filling. Makes 4 servings.
  4. Tips:
    1. Omit the jalapeno and reduce the hot pepper sauce to taste to limit the spiciness of the filling.
    2. Sprinkle the tuna filing with shredded Cheddar cheese before rolling to add flavour and provide additional calcium.
