Dinner in 5 (seriously!)

Lately I’ve talked about being busy.  Probably because my own life feels hectic.  A conundrum I often face is when I am busy I grab what’s convenient…this often isn’t healthy.

(In my opinion) eating fish just feels healthy.  Probably because its benefits are well-known.  But often odor, or taste, or just the fickle-behavior fish can take on during cooking can make it unappealing to take on for a quick dinner.

Enter Tuna Steaks.
I’d enjoyed them before, but one day I was at work early enough for a segment on how easy they were to create at home (otherwise, I likely would Never have tried…segment is here )

Another benefit (besides quick, healthy & tasty) is that they’re pretty budget friendly. At my area grocery store a pound is typically $10.

For those of you who like exact measurements–I apologize. 

Here we go:

30 minutes-2 hours before you plan on cooking
Create your marinade. 
I use soy sauce, a splash of teriyaki, lemon juice, sesame seeds, pepper, salt and a touch of red pepper flakes

When it’s time to cook:
Heat Olive Oil (or Butter, or a Mix) in a pan, then add the fish
Cook 1-2 minutes on each side.  (Tuna cooks FAST–I Told you this was a quick one!)
It will remain rosy & pink (don’t equate its color to that of red meats, it’s fine…besides yellowfin is used in sushi)
