Don't let those english muffins go to waste. This Open Face Tuna Melt with Lemon Pepper is very fun, quick and easy to make.
Tuna is high in protein and minerals and while a little high in fat, most of the fat is mono- and polyunsaturated but on its own it is not very flavorful. The lemon pepper and the addition of lemon juice and lemon zest pairs well with the tuna, making for a light, airy and nutritious meal. Our Lemon Pepper is salt free and is hand blended from black pepper, minced onion, lemon, thyme and coriander. It is the perfect addition to any food that you would add salt and pepper, but want a hint of fresh lemon flavor, too.
