Polpette Di Tonno - Tuna Cakes
We have been enjoying crab cakes for quite a while now, thanks to our New England friends. In the Veneto region of Italy polpette di tonno, or tuna cakes, have been around forever, but are sadly so undiscovered in the United States. Polpette di tonno are delicious, simple to make, and leftovers are especially tasty. They would commonly be found in a Venetian wine bar as a "cicchetto" or appetizer along with a glass of white wine. They can also be served as a main course. I like to put them on a nice bed of arrugala, nothing else needed. (Except your favorite white wine.) Nothing could be simpler or more satisfying.
