Tuna Mousse Terrine with Olives

Rated as 3.17 out of 5 Stars

"Tasty and beautiful, this mousse-like textured terrine is impressively studded with pimento-stuffed olives. It's great for entertaining and looks far more difficult than it really is. Serve it on greens along with crackers or slices of Melba toast."

  • Prep

  1. Slicing crosswise, cut each stuffed olive into 3 or 4 slices. Spray a small 3-cup terrine, or decorative mold with a flat bottom, with non-stick spray. Carefully cover the bottom of the terrine with the sliced olives, making sure that the pimentos stay in the center of the olives.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, heat 1/2 cup of water. Stir in the gelatin until it completely dissolves, stirring constantly so that the gelatin does not burn.
  3. Place the tuna, mayonnaise, ketchup, paprika, white pepper and sugar in an electric blender. Process until smooth. Add the gelatin into the mixture and process again until it becomes a uniform paste. Carefully spoon the tuna mixture into the terrine over the olives until the dish is full to the rim. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When ready, remove the tuna mousse from the mold and serve.

Simple and chic, people will be wondering where you bought it. I might suggest using Chili sauce in place of ketsup...This is a quick one you'll love.

A really easy, lovely recipe that looks wonderful on the plate. I lined a terrine mold with plastic wrap (one sheet of cling wrap draped over the three longest sides, and then smoothed down) so...

Always love to find dips that have a wow factor and this one looked great. Used a glass bowl for the mould and spent ages trying to get the mousse out without ruining it. Guest enjoyed it, but...

that looks super gross.

was looking for a selection of Spanish appetizers - this one is very similar to a tuna pate' recipe that my mom makes, but the terrine treatment was unique -- delicious!
