Tuna Pâté

Pâté: a mixture of cooked ground meat and fat minced into a spreadable paste. 

Spreadable meat?  Oh gross, right?  I recently saw a recipe for salmon bisque.  Looked good enough to try.  I like soup and I like salmon.  Let's marry them and see what's what....


It reminded me of cat food, regurgitated and thrown into a soup with some spices!


I thought I was done with creamy seafood, but...

I stumbled upon my tuna pate when I was trying to create an E tuna sandwich.  I have been pregnant and then in a baby fog, so my THM rules are a little muddled.  I bent them here and there, so now that it's time to go back to being strict I got a little confused.  I was in the process of making my E lunch and wanted a Tuna sandwich.  Well, as I got started, it dawned on me that tuna is mixed with mayo to have that 'tunafish sandwich taste'.  Darn!  Now what?  I put the canned tuna in my food processor with a little s&p, lemon juice and a couple wedges of Laughing Cow Lite Cheese.  Something magical happened when I blended it.  A Pâté of some sort.  And it's delicious!  Not at all like regurgitated cat food.  

Tuna Pâté

1 can of tuna in water, drained
3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese
(that's 4.5 g fat)  
a few squirts of lemon juice
S & P

Blend in food processor until smooth

A complete lunch of Tuna Pâté, Joseph Pita Crackers and a small bowl of tomato soup (pg 293) with broccoli.

You could try this with canned or pouch salmon, but after my seafood bisque experience, I won't be going there!  

Since we are all fancy and French today....
Bon Appétit!
