Served moments later with a crisp glass of white and some melba toasts, it was a very delicious 'snackette' (as we like to refer to such things). It would make a nice starter too and, as it uses low-fat mayo, is pretty healthy too.
Do you like a pre-dinner 'snackette'? If so, what do you tend to choose?
Tuna and caper pâté
2 heaped tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
juice half a small lemon (to taste)
2 heaped teaspoons capers, well-rinsed
1/2 tsp paprika
handful flat-leaved parsley
1. Place all ingredients except lemon juice and capers into food processor and whizz to combine.
2. Add lemon juice a little at a time, tasting after each addition until the balance seems right.
3. Add the capers and pulse briefly so they are combined but not completely broken up. You want a little texture here.
