One Skillet Wonder: Ahi Tuna
Trader Joe’s has some of the best chopped vegetables I have ever found. They are fresh and delightful in salads or just about any meal. They are particularly handy in the one skillet way.
Ahi tuna steaks, 1/4 pound per person
Chopped vegetables: carrots, peas, celery, cabbage, onions, etc.
Sliced broccoli florets
Butter – 3 slices
Olive oil – 3 table spoons
Old Bay seasoning – 2 table spoons
Garlic salt – to taste
Cook all of the butter and vegetables in the skillet at a medium high temperature, searing the vegetables until they are tender
Add oil and increase the temperature to high
Add the tuna, placing it directly on the skillet, smother with the vegetables
Turn the tuna after about 3 minutes, again exposing the tuna to the hot skillet
The vegetables should steam around the tuna as it cooks.
Remove from the skillet and put on a plate, serve while hot
