I've made some good stir fry's as well as a lot of grilled fish & veggie dinners over the last week. Nothing out of the ordinary per se, mostly pulling from recipes I've already posted.
Last night I decided to spice things up just a tad, and marinate my tuna steaks before quickly searing. I grabbed a handful of ingredients from the pantry and whisked up this little mixture:
1 Clove pressed garlic
Organic Blue Agave
Flax Seeds (gave a similar feel to sesame seeds which I did not have on hand)
I whisked those things up in a bowl and poured it over my tuna. I let the tuna chill/marinate in a covered Pyrex baking dish in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
While the fish was getting all tasty in the fridge I sauteed one small chopped yellow onion and a whole bag of snap peas in garlic and a dash of soy sauce. Once those had a nice brown going I got my grill pan hot and seared off the tuna.
The timing worked just perfectly with the TJ's quinoa I added as well. That (like the brown rice) just goes right in the microwave in a bowl for 3 minutes, stir it up and do another 3. I put the tuna on just as I was getting the quinoa going for the first three minutes, and flipped it over when I fluffed the quinoa for the second three minutes.
All in all it was a Dahlicious meal, plenty of veggies and protein (quinoa is packed with protein) and the marinade added a nice little flavor to the tuna.
Hope yall had a Dahlicious Monday too!
