Tuna and clementine cream pâté



If you like tuna spreads this is how you can have it home-made, healthier and yummier. Usually given a tang by adding lemon juice, we gave it a more tropical-tang using clementines :). Also infused with Mediterranean herbs and flavors, it made for a very satisfying starter (and whole meal actually). 
Inspired from here (but adapted it with the clementine twist).


Last year: My mom's Romanian Bird's Milk



Ingredients:


  • 2 tuna cans in water (300 g drained, total)
  • 1 Philadelphia cream cheese (light version) box
  • 2 clementines
  • 1 teaspoon of each: thyme, basil, rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1 small onion (shallot)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Mince the shallot and fry it in the olive oil:


Put the tuna and capers in the food processor:


Add half of the cream cheese and fried onion:


Mix well, then add the rest of the cream cheese, the clementines (peeled and seeded if necessary), herbs, salt and pepper (decide how much after tasting):


Mix again until it's all made into an even paste. Transfer in a serving bowl and have it next to warm crusty bread. Dig in! :)
