      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    4. Lay a slightly damp linen cloth or a dampened and wrung paper towel on the bench or over a board, pour the tuna mixture over and wrap it into a salami shape: tie it with kitchen string like a parcel, in both directions.

    6. Place the wrapped roll in the Varoma dish and steam 30 min/Varoma/ speed 1.

    7. Let it cool down well before unwrapping it. Serve it at room temperature or cold, sliced next to a salad and accompanied with Thermomix Mayonnaise.

This recipe is for 4 servings calculating 100 g tuna per person.

Can be reduced, or increased up to 500 g of tuna if steaming in the Varoma, in order to fit in the Varoma dish. For larger quantities, mix it in the TM bowl, then bring a large pot of water to boil with celery stalks, carrots and onion to taste. Add salt or vegetable stock and cook simmering for 30 min.
Great dish to prepare a day ahead. Easy bring-a-plate option for a summer picnic or a buffet.
