I spent the day pulling molding off the walls in one of our bedrooms; the baseboards and the molding around the door. Other than the rug burns on my knees, I enjoyed the process. It felt good to pull out the old to prepare for the new. Oh, the possibilities!
This was a good week for a simple French Fridays with Dorie selection. We made an appetizer called Tuna Rillettes. According to The Food Lover’s Companion, rilettes is a pâté-like spread usually made from pork or other meats, including fish. I had a wonderful pork rillettes recently at Campo here in Reno.
Tuna Rillettes couldn’t be easier to make. Chunk light tuna, sliced shallot, curry powder, a pinch of allspice, crème fraîche, and salt and pepper are placed in a small food processor and whirred until it is fully blended and becomes a nice spread. After a rest in the refrigerator, spread on crackers and enjoy!
Yum, this was good! I enjoyed it as an appetizer one day and for lunch the next. The subtle curry flavor was delicious. I did an experiment on my husband: I asked him to guess the main ingredient. He couldn’t figure it out, but did enjoy the rillettes very much.
Have a great weekend!

I like that. I am going to give this a try. I am always looking for a snack ideas instead of cookies. Thanks for the recipe.
If your hubby couldn’t discern the curry, maybe I should have made Bill give it a try 🙂 Glad you enjoyed!
This recipe really does transform the tuna, doesn’t it? I really enjoyed these rillettes. And you made them looks so pretty. Everyone was worried about photographing them, but I think they turned out to be quite photogenic.
Thanks! Sometimes the inspiration for my photos comes easily, and this was one of those times.
I agree. you did a great job showing these off!
I want to know what you’re doing with the bedroom! 😀
Its quite a treat after a hard day’s work at renovation! Very lovely pictures!
I am happy you liked it too! I fell in love with tuna all over again with this recipe!
I enjoyed this too. The curry added something special to the spread. I can’t wait to make it again.
We really enjoyed this one…I thought the flavors were quite subtle, too! Glad it was a winner for your family!
Your dish looks delicious. And your project sounds exciting!!
I loved how easy this was.
House projects are such a pain – but aren’t the end results wonderful?
Your Tuna Rillettes look really good, much smoother than mine. I am glad everyone enjoyed it.
