Recipe Ingredients for Mediterranean Tuna Panini

18 ounce chunk light tuna, drained
1 1/2 tomato, chopped (plum)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and chopped (3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons minced red onion
2 teaspoon capers, rinsed and chopped
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 Freshly ground pepper, to taste
12 slices whole-wheat bread
2 teaspoons canola oil

Recipe Directions for Mediterranean Tuna Panini

  1. Have four 15-ounce cans and a medium skillet (not nonstick) ready by the stove.

  2. Place tuna in a medium bowl and flake with a fork. Add tomato, feta, artichokes, onion, capers, lemon juice and pepper; stir to combine. Divide the tuna mixture among 6 slices of bread (about 1/2 cup each). Top with the remaining bread.

  3. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place 2 panini in the pan. Place the medium skillet on top of the panini, then weigh it down with the cans. Cook the panini until golden on one side, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, flip the panini, replace the top skillet and cans, and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 3 minutes more. Repeat with another 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining panini.
