Add a touch of luxury to your baked potato with Mike Robinson's Mediterranean-inspired tuna mix


1. Halve the baked potato lengthways and carefully scoop out some of the potato from each half.

2. Gently break up the tuna and place in a bowl. Add in the flageolet beans, tomatoes, capers, olives and chopped egg, and mix gently.
