I found an old recipe in one of my vintage recipe boxes that seemed
like the perfect compromise for me. Let me explain, I am a fish lover
and I especially enjoy fish based appetizers. I love oysters, clams, shrimp
and smoked salmon. My husband David will only eat tuna, and never
fresh tuna, only tuna out of a can.
So, when I discovered a recipe for Tuna Pecan Ball, I knew I must give
it a try. Now for the tweak on this recipe, I didn't have any pecans,
but I did have a three pound bag of walnuts just purchased from Costco,
so I made one substitution.
Here is the recipe:
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (6 1/2 oz) can solid tuna, drained
3 T diced green pepper
3 T diced scallions
3 T diced celery
2 t prepared horseradish
1/2 t hot sauce
1/2 t worcestershire
1/2 C chopped walnuts
Combine all ingredients, except walnuts; stir well. Shape into a ball;
cover and chill at least one hour. Roll in walnuts; cover and chill.
Serve with assorted crackers.
This fish board has just been waiting for a recipe such as this :-)
Don't forget the assorted crackers.
It's really yummy and even my picky eater loves it!
