Tuna pot (marmitako)

This tuna pot (called Marmitako in spanish) is a typical dish from north region in Spain. It’s a nice recipe for cold days to get warm soon 🙂


  • 400 gr tuna
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1l fish stock
  • 1 potato

Start cutting a green and a red pepper in squares; chop an onion (and you can see in this video how to do it). On a stewpan add olive oil and when it’s hot add chopped onion and cut peppers. Add salt. Cook them for 10 minutes moving from time to time. Add one peeled potato cut in similar pieces, bring the knive close to the edge potato and then twist your wrist to break the potato. Cook the potato with vegetables for about 4 minutes.

Then add 1l of fish stock, my advice is to prepare fish stock at home, but if you don’t have enough time or don’t feel like bought fish stock gives you also a good result. Let fish stock cook for about 20 minutes, until potatoes are soft.

Cut tuna in cubes and add to the stewpan, cook for 2 minutes and your recipe is ready. Look how its color change after 2 minutes of cooking.
