Tuna Tonnato (Italian Tuna Sauce) with Fishwife Smoked Albacore Tuna

What is Tonnato?

Tonnato is an Italian sauce traditionally made with canned tuna, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and capers. The name "tonnato" is derived from the Italian word "tonno," which means tuna. The sauce has a smooth and creamy consistency with a tangy flavor profile. It is often used as a dressing for cold or room temperature dishes, such as sliced veal, poached chicken, or even vegetables like tomatoes. Make it for your next dinner party and accept all of those compliments that are sure to follow!



    • Blend all ingredients for the tonnato sauce in a blender until smooth. The mixture should be thick, but easily spreadable.
    • If not, adjust with lemon juice or water. Taste and adjust for salt. Serve over pan fried veal or pork, sliced tomatoes or grilled veggies!
