marinera murciana


A traditional Spanish tapas originating from the Murcia region, this delight is similar to a Russian salad, the difference being it is served on boat shaped bread sticks called rosquillas, topped with an anchovy. Hence the name of the salad Marinera, meaning sailor.


  • 3 small potatoes

  • 200g jar of pickled mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans, etc.)

  • 4 tins of tuna chunks

  • mayonnaise

  • rosquillas


  • Boil the potatoes and let them cool.
    In a bowl, lightly mash the potato without pureeing it and add the jar of vegetables and the well-drained tuna.

  • Add the mayonnaise and mix all the ingredients in an enveloping way so as not to crush them.

  • Mount the salad onto the bread stick (rosquilla) on the side of the knot.
    Top the salad with an anchovy to complete the marinara.
