Blackened Tuna

Ingredients

1/4 cup blackening seasoning

4 tuna steaks (about 1 1/2 pounds)

cooking spray

2 tablespoons butter

Steps

1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place seasoning in shallow bowl. Coat tuna with cooking spray; dredge tuna steaks, one at a time, in seasoning (coat evenly on both sides). Wash hands.

2. Place butter in pan; swirl to coat. Add tuna, using tongs, and cook 2 minutes on each side (for medium), up to 3-4 minutes on each side (for well-done), or until desired doneness. Serve with Fresh Salsa.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Ingredients

1 pint grape tomatoes (rinsed)

3-4 sprigs fresh cilantro (rinsed)

1 lime (rinsed)

1/2 cup pre-diced red onions

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Steps

1. Slice tomatoes in half; chop cilantro finely. Place both in medium bowl. Cut lime in half; squeeze juice of one lime half into bowl (1 tablespoon). (Reserve other lime half for garnish.)

2. Stir in remaining ingredients. (For a smoother texture, place in food processor or blender; pulse 20-30 seconds or until smooth.) Chill until ready to serve with tuna.

Chuck Wagon Corn

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter

2 cups frozen corn

1/4 cup pre-diced red onions

1/4 cup frozen diced green bell peppers

3 tablespoons diced pimientos

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

Steps

1. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place butter in pan; swirl to coat. Stir in remaining ingredients; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Reduce to medium; simmer 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until corn is tender. Serve.

Aprons Advice

The net carbs on the tuna and salsa are low. Enjoy a nice salad or fresh steamed green vegetable instead of the corn.
