Turkey Tonnato

Have any of you ever made this dish? I am making it next weekend for friends, and wonder what you would serve with it? I have a couple of ideas, but would welcome suggestions.

I don't eat canned tuna, so I doubt I would ever make this...however, I did a little search on the Internet and found one recipe that listed some things to serve with it:

The Italians make a great canned product in olive oil. Nothing wrong with it. I hate canned tuna in water and albacore is garbage.

Totally agree. It's a totally different product and well worth the extra $. I use the Italian tuna on pasta, pizza, salads. Good stuff.

I only use the good stuff as well. Can't stand the tuna in water, etc. I do eat the turkey with a tuna sauce. it's delicious and not as "funky" as you might think.

I don't buy a lot of canned products to begin with, so no matter the country of origin, I doubt I would buy canned tuna. I don't really care for the taste, color, texture, or smell of canned tuna. I do, however, like fresh tuna steak.

Hey


Tonnato is a brilliant dish!! It can be done with almost any lean cut of meat, obviously the Italians use veal but turkey, venison, beef fillet, lamb backstrap, even kangaroo would work. All the fat and mouthfeel comes back through the creamy tuna mayonnaise sauce.

Serving with I'd recommend quite acidic sides to cut through the richness like confit tomatoes, baby new potatoes with lemon or even a fresh herb salad with a vinaigrette.

My only tip with the dish would be to crumb and fry the turkey like a schnitzel and to blitz the tuna into a mayonnaise with lots of cornishons (pickles) and capers. The extra crunch and fat of the turkey will go brilliantly with the tuna mayo, and the caper and pickle will help to lighten and season the tuna (a lot like tartare sauce).

Tonnato's a great dish!

:)
