Mock tuna snacks

RatingDifficultyBeginner

Recipe author: Irene Margolis. So many people have asked for the recipe for the "pate" on the crackers I served at the Fry's AGM a few years ago, so I decided to add it to our recipe repertoire. It is my adaptation of the recipe for "mock tuna" on the Fry's website. I did 3 different lots, and none of them were an exact recipe, so this is the basic idea, play around and have fun!
It is really delicious and will satisfy everyone!

Prep Time30 minsTotal Time40 mins

 1 Fry's vegiloni, finely grated
 ½ cup B-well mayo
 ¼ onion or spring onion very finely chopped
 1 or more chillies very finely chopped (to taste)
 1 ½ tbsp tablespoon of finely chopped parsley
 40 ml freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
 herb salt to taste
To assemble:
 1 Block Irene’s Gourmet Meltme or Mozzarella style cheese, cut into small squares or triangles
 1 punnet mini cherry tomatoes
 Fresh edible flower and herbs to garnish
 1 Packet vegan friendly crackers

Method:
1

Mix all the pate ingredients together to form a paste, you can add a little water if it is too thick.

2

Taste and adjust if necessary – (salt, lemon, mayo)

3

Fill a piping bag with an extra large nozzle to pipe it onto crackers of your choice. (If you don’t have a piping bag, you can spoon the mixture onto the crackers)

4

Spread the crackers on a serving platter.

5

Pipe a generous amount onto each cracker

6

Garnish with a Meltme or Mozzarella squares or triangle, a mini tomato and some fresh herbs and/or flowers

7

Serve immediately so that the crackers don’t become soggy.

Variations:
8

Reduce the mayo and add some olive oil

9

Play around with different herb options – fresh is always better – Thyme & sage work well.

10

If you need to make it in advance (an hour or so), place a slice of cheese on the cracker before piping the pate on, this will prevent the cracker from becoming soggy

11

This pate is also delicious as part of a sandwich or toasted sandwich, too!
