I'm posting this recipe for ZWT 5, it comes from "Dine Around The World", a lovely cookbook a friend gave me many years ago. It states "This typical summer dish comes from the exquisite cuisine of Madeira." Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the mid Atlantic Ocean . It is a popular year-round resort, noted for its Madeira wine, flowers, and embroidery artisans. Please note that this dish requires overnight chilling in the fridge after assembly.

- 3 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 tablespoon chopped anchovy
- 1 tablespoon chopped capers
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Fabulous!! We loved this recipe I made this Saturday, as I was having my family over for Sunday lunch. I served this along with a bunch of antipasti dishes, a large green salad and a rustic crusty loaf of bread. It was perfect and totally delicious. I am one of the biggest haters of anchovies even though my brothers love them, but I made the recipe using both the paste and anchovies and you could not even pick up the strong taste. I think they actually made the dish better. I did leave out the teaspoon of salt from the juice to pour over the roast as I felt the paste was salty enough. The tuna topping was awesome and I served the rest in a bowl on the side for everyone to take more, my brother put it all over his salad as well as the meat. A really great dish Karen and makes for a great meal to share with family on a lazy Sunday afternoon, with a good bottle of wine whilst soaking up the sun. Cheers :)
