Our friend, Samantha, served this as an appetizer the other night at her house. It’s one of David’s most favorite dishes so I had to make it again. If you are going to a dinner or a party sometime soon, offer to bring the appetizer and wow your friends with this one. The guys at Rex’s Seafood will even dice the tuna for you (if you ask nicely and they aren’t too crowded).
The proportions for the online recipe and the one in her Barefoot Contessa Family Style cookbook are wildly different (aka, 50 servings using 3 ¾ lbs of tuna vs 6-8 servings using ¾ lbs tuna) so plan and measure accordingly. Serve on water crackers. Delish!
