Tuna & caper pate


  • Place the tuna with a squeeze of lemon juice, the butter, cayenne and a little ground pepper in a food processor. Briefly pulse until smooth and taste for seasoning. Then add the capers and pulse for 30 secs to distribute (not mash). Taste for seasoning again. 
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl, smooth out the top and tightly cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
