A long time ago, David and I were down in the keys and we stopped at a little restaraunt. They had a smoke tuna pate appetizer, and it was insanely yummy. I've spent a long time trying to duplicate it, and today's recipe is about as close as I think I'm going to come.
1-2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened or melted
* To taste. I think I like it with more spices vs. less.
Slightly drain 1 can of tuna, leaving the tuna moist but not completely dripping. Place cream cheese mixture and tuna into a Magic Bullet or blender. Blend until it's the consistancey of pate. Serve with crackers and some fruit.
