Appetizers » Tuna Meatballs
Damien DiPaola of Ristorante Damiano in Boston's North End creates high-quality tuna meatballs served with a sweet and tangy sauce. Damien combines sushi-grade ahi tuna with dried, soaked currents, pine nuts and a salty cheese blend. The meatballs are seared over high heat to yield a golden, crispy outside, but rare interior. Serve with Damien's agrodolce (Italian for "sour and sweet") sauce of tomato, vinegar, tangy capers, with sweet brown sugar and red onions.
