Today we had some awful storms. Luckily we didn’t lose power but our yard is under many inches of water. A reminder that nature keeps going on despite everything else grinding to a halt.
For dinner, I defrosted some Ahi tuna steaks I had bought at Aldi and sautéed them up with some lemon pepper, radishes, red onions, and zucchini. The zucchini was looking a little worse for wear and the radishes were getting soft and it was an easy way to use them up. If you haven’t had a cooked radish, it’s worth trying! They stay peppery but have a softer texture. We also had some of the potato-cauliflower gratin on the side.
We haven’t been using our freezer stash because we’ve been eating meat as they expire but we have a bit of a lull. I have some ground chicken I need to use up but what I have planned involves tomorrow’s produce delivery. It was a treat to have seafood instead! The trick is not to overcook the tuna and leave it a bit rare inside. It defrosts very quickly in cold water so it doesn’t require much planning. I’ve even cooked it directly from frozen.
