How to Make Tuna Puff Pastry
Start with adding the water, butter, and salt into a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add in your flour all at once and start stirring.
Once the mixture forms a ball and detaches from the side of the pot, remove it from the heat.
Add all 3 eggs in one at a time while beating the mix. Keep beating it until it’s thick and smooth.
Take spoonfuls of this batter and line each spoonful on a buttered baking sheet. Bake these shells for 25 to 30 minutes in the oven at 400 degree.
Once it finishes baking, let your shells cool on some baking racks. They’re ready for their filling now.
How to Make Tuna Puff Filling

Then add in the mayo, the drained pickle relish, and some minced onion and mix.
For the best consistency make sure that everything is mixed evenly.
Note: This should be enough to fill about 24 of your puff pastries.If tuna isn’t your favorite, feel free to switch out the main ingredient filling. Crab is a wonderful option to replace the tuna for in this recipe. It’s equally as delicious as the tuna.For the vegetarians, you can also switch out the tuna for a spinach dip filling, which will work just as well!
How to fill Tuna Puff
Put all the tuna filling into a pastry piping bag, and fit with a piping tip.
Once your puff shells are completely cooled, poke the tip into each puff and fill with your tuna filling.
Make sure you’re filling it with just the right amount of tuna mix!
Note: Too little, and you won’t have a good balance of flavors. Too much, and the filling might pop out of the shell and make a mess.
