This recipe is inspired by chef Ana Sortun of Oleana restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her version can be found in her cookbook Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean (HarperCollins, $34.95).

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 pound fresh tuna, finely chopped
  • 1/2 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 scallion, white and green parts trimmed and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 6 black olives, pitted and finely chopped
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, split in half vertically, yolks separated and mashed
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Garnish: 6 black olives, pitted and finely chopped, and chives (about 6 finely chopped or 12 cut into 3-inch pieces)

Instructions:

In a small sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook tuna, celery, and scallion in oil until the scallion is softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in curry. In a medium bowl, combine tuna mixture with mayonnaise, parsley, olives, and yolks. Season with salt and pepper. Season egg whites with salt and pepper; fill each center with a heaping spoonful of filling (or fill a pastry bag with filling and "pipe" into individual whites). Top with chopped olives and chives.
