  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Rub the potatoes with the oil and season with salt, then transfer to a baking tray. Bake for 1 hr 15 mins or until the skin is crispy and the flesh inside is tender. Alternatively, microwave the potatoes for 5 mins on high, then rub with oil and season, before baking for 30-35 mins to crisp up.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise and horseradish, then mix with the tuna, spring onions, sweetcorn, cheese, chilli and most of the dill. Stir in a squeeze of lemon to taste.
  3. Cut open the cooked potatoes and season; top with the tuna mix. Serve with the radishes and salad leaves, scattered with the remaining dill.
