Tuna and Caper Wrap

This tastes as good as it looks

Apparently, variety is the spice of life. If you’ve become bored of your regular lunchtime sandwiches, then try the Hairy Dieters’ Tuna and Caper Wrap for some new inspiration. This will only take you about 15 minutes to make, so do try and make on the morning you intend to eat it so your wrap tastes nice and fresh.

The light mayo and low-fat crème fraiche give this a bit of a ‘naughty’ feel, but at only 236 calories per wrap you can tuck-in without any guilt. For other sandwiches and wraps ideas, click here.

  • 1 can of tuna in spring water
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp low-fat crème fraiche
  • A dash of Tabasco
  • 1 tbsp capers (chopped)
  • ¼ red pepper (finely chopped)
  • 2 spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp coriander (finely chopped)


  • 2 large wraps
  • 2 large lettuce leaves (shredded)
  • ¼ cucumber (finely sliced lengthways)
  • A handful of mint

Cost per portion: Approx £1.36* (based on Tesco’s prices, Feb 2022)


Drain the tuna and put it in a food processor with the lime juice, mayonnaise and crème fraiche and blitz until smooth. Stir in the rest of ingredients and check for seasoning.

To make wraps, cover each wrap with lettuce, then follow with cucumber. Put the tuna mix on top, then add the mint. Fold up the bottom of each wrap to stop everything falling out, then roll the whole thing up tightly. Cut in half on the diagonal. If you are not using immediately, wrap in foil or baking parchment for later.
