It was late and I wanted a quick meal out of the freezer. Passing up the frozen leftover pasta and ice cream, I grabbed the chunk of yellow fin that didn’t end up as sushi and the peas.
The orange zest was nearly omitted but I’m glad the citrus note was there. Just a slight tang in the background, it helps you forget that this meal was an iceberg a few minutes earlier. A small pat of butter melted on the peas, because you can’t eat peas without butter, that would be wrong and the French Canadian woman in me would be very disappointed if you didn’t.
The tuna was still raw in the center, as you can see from the blurry picture. Put a good amount of freshly cracked pepper on both sides. Get a pan smokin’ hot and sear top and bottom of that little fish fillet. Peppery heat and cool center will play your taste buds like a harpstring.
Need not mention… only eat raw seafood that is supposed to be eaten raw, handle with the up most care, and don’t give this to little ones or granny just to be safe.
