Crostini di Tonno e Pepe Arrosto
Tuna and Roasted Pepper Crostini
(Crostini di Tonno e Pepe Arrosto)
 
 
Ingredients:

24 1/4-inch-thick diagonal slices cut from a long thin loaf of Italian or French bread

For the Tuna Spread:
One 6-ounce can Italian tuna packed in olive oil, not drained
3 flat anchovy fillets
1 garlic clove, minced and mashed to a paste with a pinch salt
1 teaspoon drained capers
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 red bell peppers, quick-roasted, peeled and cut into 24 strips
1 tablespoon drained capers
Freshly ground black pepper 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

On a large baking sheet arrange bread slices in one layer and toast in middle of oven until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Prepare the Tuna Spread:
In a food processor puree spread ingredients until blended well and season with salt and pepper.

Toasts, tuna spread, and roasted peppers may be prepared up to this point 3 days ahead, toasts kept in an airtight container at room temperature and tuna spread and roasted peppers chilled, covered, in separate bowls.

Bring tuna spread and roasted peppers to room temperature before serving.

Top toasts with tuna spread and roasted pepper strips and sprinkle with capers and pepper to taste. Makes 24 crostini, serving 12.
