Pickled olives and tuna gets along well…

Most of the times, it’s the ingredients in my refrigerator or pantry that decides what I should make. The other day I had canned tuna in my pantry and pickled olives in my refrigerator and I was forced to make something out of it. How about tuna-olives cutlet? Didn’t sound that weird to me, at least I don’t have to add any extra salt to it.

This tuna olive cutlet tasted good, the pickled olives gave that extra kick.
