 Tuna Tonnato

If you like sushi, you need to try making this dish. Thinly sliced fresh tuna is topped with a wonderfully delicious, but simple to make sauce. This sauce is traditionally used with cooked veal, but we sure like this light and healthy update!

Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients:

1 can (3 1/2 ounces) oil-packed tuna

3 tablespoons capers, drained, plus more for garnish

2-3 anchovy fillets, chopped

1/4 cup mayonnaise

Juice of 2 lemons

Salt and pepper

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

12 ounces fresh tuna, sushi quality, thinly sliced

Hard boiled egg, baby greens, parsley, red onion, optional, as garnish

Preparation:

1. To make the sauce, puree the can of tuna, capers, and anchovies in a food processor until combined. Add the mayonnaise, lemon juice and oil and process until creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

2. Arrange the thinly sliced raw tuna on a platter and top with the tuna sauce. Garnish with sliced hard boiled eggs, baby greens, minced parsley, and red onions, if you like.

    I like tuna out of the can, but I’ve never had raw tuna. I’m not a big fan of raw fish, but I do like cucumber rolls!
