Tuna Panini

This was so crusty, warm and gooey it never even made it to the plate!

I'm not all that fond of fish. The discovery of an allergy to shellfish a few years back took away the few types of seafood that I really did enjoy. I do like tuna on occasion and I suppose there's no better day to enjoy it than Ash Wednesday. In fact now that Lent is here, I'm sure I'll be experimenting with other fish as well in the upcoming weeks.

Tuna (on whole wheat) Panini

1 (6 oz) can of tuna, drained
2 Tbsp reduced-fat mayo
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1 green onion (green part only) diced
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
6-8 grape tomatoes, chopped
pinch of salt and pepper

Combine above ingredients. Assemble panini. Top one whole wheat bread slice with one ounce of 2% cheddar cheese, one third of the tuna mixture, another ounce of cheese, then another slice of bread. Grill on panini press until cheese is melted and bread is nice and toasty.

This is enough filling for three sandwiches. Just right for us!
