What is it about French that makes so many things sound romantic, or elegant, or complicated? Like this Tuna RILLETTE! which is really a richly spiced tuna salad. No mayo, but cream. Shallots. Curry powder, yes, curry powder and a pinch of allspice. Not your mama’s tuna salad. Instead of just spreading it on bread, I served it Hors d’oeuvre style with some toasted herb and spinach tortilla chips.

P1040082 Pretty tasty! I increased the curry powder and the allspice because we like to really taste the spices. Oh, yeah! Good stuff. Thanks, Dorie, for upping the value of tuna ‘salad’.

Check with the other Doristas and their rillettes.
