2 cans of tuna, bonito or atún claro in olive oil
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 tsp bittersweet smoked paprika (Pimentón de la Vera)
Extra virgin olive oil
Sherry vinegar
1 head of green lettuce, torn into small pieces
8 piquillo peppers
2 tbsp capers
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Salt and pepper


Gently mix the tuna and capers in a bowl to preserve the tuna's flakiness. Arrange the lettuce on each plate and place a few piquillo pimentos in the center. Place a large spoonful of the tuna salad on the pimentos.

Drizzle the salad with oil and vinegar. Sprinkle some pimentón (smoked paprika) on top. Garnish with parsley.

Serve with fresh bread.
