What to do with Tuna

Filed under: Food,Seafood — Mindy M. @ 7:34 pm

I purchased an whole albacore tuna down at the docks. The average they had was about 13 pounds, which when cleaned leaves me with almost 6 pounds of fish. I was lucky enough that the fisher men filleted it for me so I only had to deal with portioning out 4 large boneless loins. I cut the loins down into 4 even portions about 1 pound each and froze them. The rest was irregular shaped end pieces that I decided to eat fresh.

Best ever tuna melt

Filed under: Food,Seafood,Snack — Mindy M. @ 6:19 pm

You’d think I was pregnant with the cravings I get…today it was tuna…mmhhmm…So, I toasted an English muffin, mixed up some tuna salad (mayo, mustard, worchestisher, hot sauce, pickles, salt, pepper, onion powder) a slice of harvati cheese (available at costco pre sliced) and toasted the 2 mini open face sandwiches. OH MY…I want another one just thinking about it.

My lady lotsa lox Bagel

Filed under: Food,Seafood,Snack — Mindy M. @ 10:06 am

Rememeber lady lovely locks?  Come on, the cartoon with the girls with long lovely bountiful locks of hair? Still not ringing the bell? she had pixies hiding in her hair that would help her save the day…no?  You must not have been a kid in the early eighties…bad style and weird (but great) cartoons. 
Moving on…this bagel is wonderful, and not at all an origonal, bagels with lox and cream cheese have been enjoyed for years…but here on the west coast it’s just not eaten very often.  and why the heck not?!?! it’s amazing.  I don’t keep cream cheese in the fridge that often anymore because I prefer marscapone (the italian version) but I’m sure either is yummy. 

One bagel (a good one from a bagel shop would deffinitely be a plus)
smear of marscapone/cream cheese
lotsa lotsa lox (cold smoked salmon, you know the kind that isn’t flaky)
thinly sliced red onion
some fresh lemon juice
coarse fresh ground pepper

toast bagel (duh) smear on your creamy goodness (marscapone in my case) top with lox, load ‘er up, squeeze just a few drops of lemon juice, top with onion & dill and grind some pepper on top.  OOOOOOOhhh

*side note*
the lox (a.k.a smoked salmon) from costco is quite yummy and you can portion it out into sandwich bags and freeze it.  It gets a little bit mushier, but ins’t terribly noticeable.  YUM

Parmesean Crusted Salmon

Filed under: Entree,Food,Seafood — Mindy M. @ 2:33 pm

I bought a beautiful piece of wild caught salmon at costco, but I hadn’t gone to the grocery store in awhile so I was short on things to cook it in/with.  I had guests over and needed something to go with ravioli with a red sauce.  I also had some asparagus that I needed to go with the meal.  I started thinking Italian food after opening my fridge I pulled out some of the only ingredients in the fridge, sun dried tomatoes and parmesean cheese.  The following is what I came up with…Quite delicious.

1-2 pounds of Wild Salmon (do not use farmed salmon…ever. please.)
Parmesean Cheese
Olive Oil

Season the salmon with salt & pepper.  On one side press parmesean cheese into salmon covering one side.  Heat Oil in a frying pan until sizzling hot and place salmon cheese side down, flip when browned.  Cook until fish is cooked through and garnish with sun dried tomato sauce.
