Plays: 7276

Yes, the classic tuna melt, it's one of the rare instances where cheese and fish combine deliciously. And in this video, Chef John shows you how to make an amazing one. There are several keys here, but the first is to use good tuna. Your melt will only be as good as the tuna you use. The tuna salad combines quality tuna with diced onions and celery, capers, chile paste, some mayonnaise, and the secret ingredient, a little fresh mozzarella! You’ll give your bread a good buttering and toasting before topping the slices with lots of delicious tuna salad. Grate on some sharp cheese, like Cheddar, and broil until unbelievably beautiful. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Tuna Melt. Serve with dill pickles and potato chips. See more Chef John videos >>
