Savory fish-flavored muffins might not be so familiar in the United States, but they are worth a try--and they make fork-free appetizers to go with cocktails. These muffins have chopped tuna steaks, grated parmesan, fresh parsley, chopped pistachios, and grated orange zest baked into the batter. They are best served still warm from the oven, either as is or split and filled with tuna-liver pate (found at specialty shops and online), as here.

Ingredients

  • 170 grams flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 100 milliliters olive oil
  • 100 milliliters milk
  • 50 grams parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley (minced)
  • 1 orange
  • 100 grams tuna steak (chopped)
  • 30 grams pistachios (chopped)
  • liver pate (tuna)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grease and flour a muffin pan.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and 150 grams of flour.
  4. Add the baking powder and a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  5. In a saucepan, heat the oil and the milk to a simmer.
  6. Add to the egg mixture, stirring continuously.
  7. Add the cheese, parsley, orange peel, tuna, pistachios and mix well.
  8. Pour the mixture into a muffin pan up to 3/4 full.
  9. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and fluffy, remove from the oven.
  10. Allow to cool and remove from the molds, cut in half, spread with tuna paté and replace the muffin top and serve.

The idea of putting tuna and pistachios together in a muffin form was new to me and I enjoyed giving them a try. I might try to add chopped walnuts and apples next time and I think it would be even better!
