Alon Shaya’s Tuna Bruschetta with Hard Boiled Egg


2 large eggs
8 slices (about 5 inches wide) Ciabatta bread or baguette
8 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons garlic aioli (recipe below) or mayonnaise
1 5-ounce can tuna, drained and flaked
8 peeled cherry tomatoes (from a can)
8 teaspoons olive tapenade (recipe below)
4 leaves basil, torn into small pieces
Coarse sea salt to taste

For Olive Tapenade:
10 each canned cerignola olives, pitted
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 filet canned brown anchovy
1 teaspoon capers, rinsed

For garlic aioli:
¼ cup lemon juice
2 egg yolks
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1½ teaspoons salt
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¾ cup canola oil



Preheat broiler.

Bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Place eggs in boiling water and let simmer for 9 minutes. Remove and place into ice water to cool down. Peel and cut each egg into quarters.

Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil. Place the baking sheet into the preheated oven with the broiler setting and cook until toasted and golden brown.

Remove and spread the aioli or mayonnaise evenly between the toasts. Flake the tuna on the crostini, then place the cherry tomatoes and egg wedges over the tuna and sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Drizzle a little olive tapenade over the toast and garnish with basil.


Finely chop olives, anchovies and capers. Place in a bowl and whisk in the olive oil.


Put the lemon juice, egg yolks, garlic and salt in a blender; blend until completely combined. Combine the oils in a cup; with the blender on (let it run for a few seconds before you carefully remove the top), pour the oil in a slow, steady stream and continue to blend. It will thicken and is done when it looks like pudding.
