(Some Guy)   So I've got cream cheese, canned tuna, and various spices and juices. Thinking of making some type of spread -- maybe with with basil and lemon juice. Any suggestions? (LGT an example.) One idea: Grilled cheese with tuna cream cheese spread inside   (thebusybaker.ca) divider line

Tuna, cinnamon, rosemary, and cranberry juice would be a combination.

Tuna Dip - also makes good sandwiches

1 8-oz brick cream cheese
1 can tuna (6 oz?  normal size) - drained
3 or 4 green onions, chopped.
Enough mayo to make it the consistency you want - 1/4 cup or so for dip, less for spread
2 packets of true lemon or a Tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
Curry powder - I use about a teaspoon or so
Pinch of salt and a couple grinds of pepper, to taste

I love this stuff.

Go for it.

I got a slab of fresh steelhead trout on sale yesterday, slathered it with honey, dill, and turned it into three meals.  Seared it quickly over high heat and left it rare.  The first meal was over spicy rice with peppers and mushrooms.  Standard traditional stuff.

The leftover portions I gently reheated and served over a sesame bagels with cream cheese.  If you've got canned tuna, use canned tuna and try something interesting.

OK... I'm not a fish person (thanks, Mom! With your poisoning me with bad fish when I was 4), but hear me out...

Ignore the actual tuna (also ignore the cats licking the screen) and save the juice. Add actual food to it... such as anything citrus or vodka (which is a fruit, dammit). Melt butter, because why not? Drink Vodka.

Alright... real idea...

Take juice from can, add, yes, a splash of vodka. Add a lemon or lime or orange or whatever is sitting on that pretty bowl on your table (what? I'm the only one?). Add garlic. Add whatever fresh herbyou have laying around the house. Add it slowly to creme fresche or sour cream or the brick of cream cheese.

Spread on bread.

Add said bread to hot skillet dripping in butter.

Feed cats.

Remove awesome sandwich from pan - serve with a bit of canned tuna (assuming the cats didn't finish it off) as a garnish.

Drink vodka:)

What? What are you drinking? Can I have some?

Cinnamon and rosemary are the 2 things that will overpower even canned tuna.

Gods help me, I watched that. And then went down the rarebit hole.

But, I did learn 2 things... 1) A metal spoon can discolor canned tuna in a double-boiler (?). (I only use a double-boiler for melting chocolate so I can cover my baking mistakes. Which resemble hockey pucks in both texture and taste. Truth in baking!)

2) I may have to apologize to my mother for poisoning me with fish. I think she did me a favor.

I saw somebody up above suggest fill, that's a great idea.  The key is to balance the fat with acidity.  Lemon juice is good, but s mix of lemon and lime is better...

The important thing in this recipe is separation: do not let any of the incregedients touch one another.

- Put juices and spices in cupboard.
- Using a fork, eat half the can of tuna now, sipping some of the juice. Save remaining half for later meal.
- As a dessert and a snack until the next meal (you did save that 1/2 can, didn't you?) eat the cream cheese. If it comes as a block, eat it like you would a chocolae bar, otherwise use a spoon.

This is true for so many things, except cat food, which is where the canned tuna should be.

Make yourself a curry tuna sandwich on the bread of your choice, preferably toasted, but you can even grill it in a pan/toaster oven or (HAHAHAHA AN AIR FRYER!).

Tuna, drained but save the tuna milk.
Veggies you would like in it (green onions, onions, celery, radish, cucumber, garbanzo beans, sunflower seeds, raisins, farking whatever...)

Put tuna in a bowl.
Put the chopped stuff into the same bowl.

In a different bowl, mix a shlorp of cream cheese with a drizzle of tuna milk, mix and repeat until it has the consistency of sour cream.
Sprinkle/mix in curry spices and mix, make it the way you like it.

Put that in the first bowl, mix it up, taste and adjust.

I'll let you handle the bread part...

Why all the funny's? This is exactly what I'd do. Any other recipe would be just gross.
Also, I can't be the only person who eats cream cheese that way.

Make hot tuna-dip...mix the cream cheese with the canned tuna, with a bit of green onion or fresh parsley if you have it.  If you have fresh dill, even better! OMG so good.  include the tuna juice from the can to allow better mixing.

spices/herbs to add: if you have dill, use more onion and possibly small chopped sweet pickles or a bit of mustard.  black pepper, too

if you are going the parsley route, finely chopped celery goes well, and add garlic and possibly chili pepper if you like that.  Smoked paprika can also be epic in this sort of thing.

heat the mix to allow the flavors to blend and smooth out the dip.  Add your favorite acid tiny bits at a time until the flavor "pops".  This can be lemon juice, vinegar, lime juice, whatever.

Serve in a bread-bowl or in a small chafing dish with crackers or your favorite dippable starchy item like pita chips etc.

I mashed cream cheese in a bowl with fresh dill, some garlic and basil, a bit of lemon juice, and chopped onion. It's in the fridge -- will see how it tastes in the morning!
