Crab & spam terrine

Cooking with Spam? Why not? It is not the best meat but if you mix it with good ingredients, you can get something delicious. This is what I will try.


1 can Spam (or similar)
1 can crab soup
Some extra virgin olive oil
1 green onion
¼ cup chopped celery
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
3 eggs
12 shrimp
Some freshly ground black pepper

First we will prepare the vegetables. We will chop the celery, the green onion and the garlic. In a frying pan with extra virgin olive oil we will sauté the vegetables, starting with the celery and leaving the green onion and the garlic for the last moment. We will turn the heat off and then we will add the shrimp.
We will pour the crab soup in a container and then we will add the Spam. We will mix it so that we get a paste. Then we will add the vegetables and the shrimp to the container. We will beat the eggs and add them to the container, mixing everything well. You do not need to add any salt. Canned food contains already a lot of salt.
Then we will poor the mix in a terrine mold. And that terrine mold in an oven tray which will contain some water. So we will use a bain-marie to cook our terrine. We will take both the terrine mold and the oven tray to a preheated oven to 350ºF for about 60 minutes. Once it is ready, we will have to let it cool for a while. When it is cool, we will remove our dish from the terrine mold. And you will only have to slice it and serve it. A delicious Spam terrine!

I do like span and cheese panini.

I don’t buy Spam often here because of the high price for imported foods.
