Tuna Rillettes

Appetizer addict, yes I am … I’m even considering writing a memoire on this topic, I’m pretty sure I could write a worldwide best seller!! 😉

So, as I am always looking for new recipes to post for you, here are today my super easy to make tuna rillettes!

This recipe is so easy, sooo easy!!

I can make a promise: start a count down of 5 minutes on your smartphone when you start making the recipe, you will finish before the ring tone!! Or else, leave a complaint in the comment section!! 😉

I was saying … tuna rillettes… To spread on fresh or grilled slices of bread, as a dip sauce for any kind of vegetables (I love the combo with carrots), or in a good sandwich with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, etc…

You get it, those tuna rillettes are really delicious!! And if you’re planning to make a buffet, you can make the rillettes the day before (and save the precious 5 minutes I was mentionning earlier!!).

The utensils (as always I make a list but honestly…) :

A cutting board and a sharp knife,

A bowl

And a fork!!! Tadaaaa !!!

Cut it short Emma! The recipe, Chef!

    Très bonne recette ! La prochaine fois je rajouterais un peu plus de St Môret et au lieu de coupé finement l’échalote, je l’a mixerai 🙂 Sinon c’était très bon ! Merci !
