  • 2 spring onions
  • 4g dill (small handful)
  • 1 Jar M&S Tuna Loins in olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Mayo
  • 1 pack Warburton’s thins
  • Spicy pesto, or chili sauce as needed
  • 8 slices cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 tomatoes
  • 1-1 ½ tsp lime juice (add to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Thinly slice the spring onions. Add the spring onions and dill to a mini food processor along with the tuna and  mayonnaise. Lightly pulse the mixture until the tuna forms a chunky mousse.  
  2. Split open the Warburton’s thins. Spread the pesto or chili sauce on one half, then top with tuna mousse, and two slices of cheese. Repeat until you have 4 sandwich halves. 
  3. Working in batches, place the sandwiches into the Vortex air fryer basket. Select Grill at 205°C and set the timer to 5 minutes. Grill the spicy tunacado melts until the cheese is gooey.  
  4. Thinly slice the avocado and tomato. Place these on the other half of the thins, with a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper.  
  5. Remove the tunacado melts from the air fryer and sandwich them with the avocado and tomato halves.  
  6. Serve the sandwiches hot from the air fryer.
