Thon Rillettes: A Staple Food in French Supermarchés

12 May

Thon Rillettes is my absolute favorite food in french grocery stores. It is similar to a pâté except with tuna and it tastes delicious on bread especially french baguettes.

Tuna Rillettes

from Steph is Cooking
Ingredients:
1 can of natural tuna – around 4 oz
1 tbs of chives
1 small shallot
1/2 ts of French mustard
2 tbs of fresh cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1) Drain the tuna
2) Smash the tuna with a fork
3) Shop the shallot very fine
4) Add all the rest of ingredients
5) Season with salt and pepper
6) Put in the fridge for at least 1h

I always have trouble cooking in France because of the different measuring ingredients so I decided to translate this recipe into french.
