TUNA BITES

TUNA BITES

Good day to all you Galley friends, this week, directly from our camper.  We are enjoying a few days away from our little home by the sea at a camp ground…also by the sea.

I brought with me the ingredients for making some of my protein packed bites…this time made with canned tuna.  They are super easy to throw together. Make a great little road trip or picnic snack and as today…happy hour appetizer.

I tried them out first at home base using canned chicken and baked them the conventional way.

Then again in the Omnia stove top oven.  Perfect each time. And an added bonus… if you don’t feel like making them camping/RV’ing or boating, they can be made ahead, popped in the freezer, then warmed gently  and served with your favourite dipping sauce.

Today at the camp site we enjoyed tune bites, a little tartar sauce (simply mayonnaise with relish and a splash of lemon juice) with a chilled beverage, while the day wound down and we were ready to grill up some supper.

Thanks for stopping by and while you wait for my next post edition here are some more little happy hour treats for you to try…

Galley Kat Notes:

*I found that salt wasn’t necessary for the canned chicken and ham.  They were both salty enough. I suggest taste testing the mixture before adding the egg if you are nervous about raw eggs.
**Tuna Bites: season with dill and serve with Tartar Sauce (a little mayo with green relish with lemon wedges on the side)
**Ham Bites: season with thyme and serve with Honey Mustard Sauce (grainy mustard with honey to taste)
**Chicken Bites: season with rosemary and serve with Sweet Chili Sauce (I love the commercial Thai sweet chili.  Goes with anything chicken)
