Happy New Year 2014!!! I hope everyone had as much fun as we did this year! And to kick off this year of blogging, here is a nice recipe that I made as an entree for the NYE Dinner. It’s from a small recipe book, and it’s a tuna salsa that turned out delicious.
If you’re like me, than you must not really like the sound of eating a paste made of tuna… But this recipe cuts its pregnant and dry taste and make it … well, delicious.
So, here is the recipe:
- 2 cans of tuna in oil
- 1 can of white beans
- garlic, a clove
- salt, pepper, garlic powder
Heat some olive oil in a deep pan (I used a wok) and add the garlic clove to fry a little. Meanwhile, separate the white beans from the can from their juice, but do not throw it. Add the beans to the pan and let it cook for about 5 minute. After that, add the juice you saved and water or chicken soup if you like it ( I don’t). Also, season it as you desire, salt, pepper, garlic flakes, paprika. It should cook for about 20 minutes or until the sauce becomes thicker. In a blender add the tuna and progressively add the cooked beans.
Start with 3 spoons and add more after tasting it, until you get the flavor you desired. If the paste becomes too thick, add some of the liquid from the frying pan, and season it as desired.
My husband loved this “salsa” and I could also eat tuna with pleasure. I am thinking about making this on a regular basis.
I also made from phylo dough (store-bough) some nice bite-size snacks. Just cut the dough in 5×5 cm squares, season them and throw them in the oven until cooked. They were the best thing ever!!
