Ingredients

  • 350 grams jarred piquillo peppers and their liquid sub roasted red peppers if you can't get piquillo
  • 3 roasted garlic cloves
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 3 juicy oranges peeled and cut into sections (after peeling, use a very sharp knife and cut between the skin of each segment so there is no skin or seeds in the salad)
  • 1 four-ounce can of tuna in olive oil or in escabeche drained and broken up
  • 16 hard-boiled quail eggs or 4 hard-boiled eggs (if using large eggs cut into quarters)
  • 4 ounces arbequina olives If you can't find these you can substitute another variety

Instructions

  • Cut the peppers into thick strips, and put them in your serving dish.
  • Pound the garlic, the salt, the cumin seeds and black pepper to taste in a mortar. When the cumin has been well pounded, add the olive oil and as much of the peppers’ liquid as you’d like, which will give the dressing a nice flavor.
  • Sprinkle the spring onions over the peppers, add the orange segments and the tuna. Pour the dressing over the top and decorate with the hard-boiled eggs and the olives.
