Tuna Meatballs w Balsamic Reduction Sauce
When you hear someone say “Meatballs” you think of the traditional beef meatball, but not me! I think of all the other ways I can make meatballs. One of my favorites is tuna meatballs. They are so good and different and unique and delicious. These are a great idea for something different and an excellent way to impress someone you know enjoys tuna!
I take sushi-grade tuna steaks from my fish monger and mince them up into small pieces.
I place them in a bowl and add 1/4 cup of raisins, 1/4 cup of pine nuts, 1/2 cup white wine and 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. I mix it all together by hand and add a little flour until its dry enough to work with to form into meatballs. Once formed I roll the meatballs in a bowl of sesame seeds until coated on all sides. I sit them aside and prepare my balsamic sauce.
Balsamic Reduction Sauce:
medium pot on high heat pour in 1 cup of balsamic vinegar and heat on high until it reduces by half into a thick syrup.
I heat a skillet with 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil and place my meatballs in the skillet and brown them on all sides. sit on paper paper towels to drain excess oil.
place on plate and drizzle your balsamic sauce on them.
When I’m not counting carbs I like to make a plate of chinese noodles and top with chopped scallions and a few of the meatballs! I made this plate for my neighbor! fucking hell it looked soooo good!
