Nice flavor to these paninis! Loved the blend of flavors! Used tuna in water and added a bit of olive oil. Added a bit more lemon juice. Thanks rickoholic83!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice rolls in half through the middle. Pick out some of the bread from top and bottom halves to create a slight depression.
  2. Combine tuna, onion, celery, capers, lemon juice and a pinch of red pepper flakes; mix well.
  3. Spoon 1/2 tuna mixture onto each of the roll bottoms.
  4. Cover with spinach and roll tops.
  5. Top paninis with a bacon press or another platter with some heavy canned goods placed on top.
  6. Let stand 15 minutes for flavors to blend.
  7. Note: If tuna canned in olive oil is not available, replace it with 1 6 oz. can solid light tuna in water, drained, and add 2 T extra-virgin olive oil.
