- 1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
- 1 tbsp. curry powder
- 1 tbsp. spicy curry powder
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1 tsp. cumin powder
- 2 Good Catch Foods Tuna packets

- While your potatoes roast in the oven, prepare your curried tuna filling.
- Into a medium-sized pan, heat olive oil for 30 seconds before cooking the onion for 5 minutes on medium heat. Stir often to avoid burning. Once the onions have cooked down, add the garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, before adding all your spices and seasoning. Cook them down for 2-3 minutes, stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.
- Once your onions and garlic are soft and tender, increase heat to high and add the cashew milk. Bring mixture to a boil, add your two packets of Good Catch Foods Tuna and then simmer on low for 5-6 minutes. Turn heat off and set aside.
- Remove potatoes from the oven, gently cut a hole into the potato once cool to touch and press down on both sides of the cut to create a deep hole to begin stuffing.
- Before stuffing, little dust each potato with some salt and a little pinch of lime.
- Fill each potato with the desired amount of curried tuna and top with fresh chopped green onion, olive oil and cilantro.
