Tuna Lemon Aioli Bruschetta is a gourmet appetizer that is sure to impress. A bit spicy, a bit tangy, a lot delicious.
Do you ever look at a dish you order in a restaurant and think that it would be too much trouble to recreate? I do it.
If it looks like the work won’t be worth the reward I turn a cold shoulder to the dish and move on. I saw this dish at one of mine and my families favorite restaurants here in Cincinnati, Boca.
My oldest son Jimmy was in town for a few weeks before he heads back to college in D.C and he ordered this as a first course. He asked me a few days later if I could recreate it for him. Always happy to make the guys in my family a food favorite, I looked up Boca’s menu on line and read the description of this dish and came up with a recipe as close as I could.
I really thought it was going to be fussy, but gave it a try anyway. I was wrong this appetizer is really rather simple to pull together. To say it is delicious is a big fat understatement. It is truly a gourmet appetizer, and you must give it a try.
Using a good quality tuna is key here. Just a little FYI, the tuna looks like it won’t be enough, but it goes a long way.
Oh and don’t add salt to this dish, the capers are salty enough that you don’t need it.
