Spuma di Tonno - Tuna Mousse Recipe
Dips & Spreads,
Prep time: 20 min
1 can (7 ounce or 200 gram) imported oil-packed tuna, drained
2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed
2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons good-quality
1 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, room temperature
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Put the tuna in a food processor and pulse to break up the
fish. With the machine running, add the butter, balsamic vinegar, and soy
sauce and blend until smooth. Then stop the machine and scrape down the sides of
the processor bowl. Add the lemon juice and pulse again. Season, to taste, with
salt and pepper and blend again. Check the seasoning, then add the heavy cream
and pulse to blend. NOTE: Be careful not to over blend once the cream is added or
the mixture may break.
Serve at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
If refrigerated, return the spuma to room temperature before serving.
Serve with breadstick, crostini, or crackers to spread it on. Also excellent served with champagne.
