Let’s start with the egg and tuna appetizer.

Separate the yolks from the whites by slowly pushing the egg yolk out into a plate or bowl. Make sure that you don’t break the egg whites.

Mash the egg yolks, then add the tuna (without the oil), mayonnaise, and capers.

Cut the capers into fine pieces before placing them in. Stir them altogether until all ingredients are mixed well.

Scoop a teaspoonful and place them on the egg whites where the yolk used to be.
