Tuna Panini Filling

Assalamu alaikum

If you are a foodie and prefer a variety for meals or even a filling snack then you might enjoy a bite of Tuna filled Panini.

Great for picnics, outings with family or just for work lunch.

“and eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allaah) likes not Al-Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)”

[Qur’an Surah al-A’raaf 7:31]

Equally enjoyable and fulfilling for the hungry stomachs of young and old


1 tin/ 112g Tuna Chunks

1/2 tin sweet corn

1 Green Chilli

2 Medium sized Red Onions

Pinch of salt

Pinch of pepper

3 tbs Mayonnaise

Cheese (optional)

Tomatoes (optional)


Tuna Mix:

Empty the Tuna chunks in a bowl (without any water/brine)

Add Sweet corn as much as you prefer

Add finely chopped green chilli and red onions

Add salt, pepper and mayonnaise and mix well.

1. Slice the Panini bread through the Middle

2. Place it on a stove at medium heat, turning each side until warm, keep for longer if you prefer it to be slightly crispy.

4. Place the Tuna mix on the Panini and top it with cheese of your choice and cover with top half of the panini

And ta-daa you are ready to munch instantly or pack it for later

If you are not a Tuna person like me then it can always be replaced with meat or cheese and other vegetables.

Panini filling recipes are endless so fiddle around with the ingredients and make a filling of your taste.

Enjoy and be thankful for the countless blessings Allah has bestowed on us. Be greatful to Allah. Remember those less fortunate than you.

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach; for the son of Adam a few mouthfuls are sufficient to keep his back straight. If you must fill it, then one-third for food, one-third for drink and one-third for air.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2380; Ibn Maajah, 3349. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1939)
