Tuna & Anchovy Stuffed Peppadews

  • Author: Krista


These are a great snack to go along with your bevy and/or game of cards. During Christmastime, I call them “Grinch in Santa’s Hat.”


1 can tuna packed in olive oil (see note)

3 anchovy fillets

2 teaspoons lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

1-14 oz jar sweet Peppadew peppers



Dice anchovies very finely.

Drain and reserve oil from tuna. Combine anchovies, 1 tablespoon reserved oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper together. You may need to add more oil to achieve an appropriate consistency to pack into the peppers.

Pack filling into the peppers and press a caper into the top of each.


You could use tuna packed in water, and add more oil than specified. Keep in mind, the flavour of tuna in olive oil is going to be better.
