Grilled Mediteranean Ahi Tuna
Very Good 4.8/5
(56 ratings)

Ahi Tuna (Yellowfin) Steaks Grilled with a Mediterranean Flair. Yellowfin Tuna or Ahi Tuna is usually served either Raw, as in sushi or Seared. or Grilled. When I first had this tuna grilled in spain with olive oil and salt I couldn't believe it was fish at all. This recipe is a bit of a cross between seared italian style and Spanish grilled.

These are fast and tasty. If desired, top with a bit of marinara, mustard, etc. This makes 4 small patties, so I usually double the recipe for my family.

These are really low in fat and carbs and can be served in a bun or with a salad. Very tasty.

Will spread if you use the George Foreman Grill, normal skillet is fine.

Best Tuna Sandwich
Very Good 4.3/5
(17 ratings)

I’m a big fan of tuna salad sandwiches. They’re easy and quick to make, are relatively healthy, and are equally as good as an office lunch or in a picnic basket.

There are three key ingredients at work with this version. First off is the lemon juice and zest…it gives the tuna a light, summery flavor that hits immediately. Second is the toast…if you try it straight from the bowl, it just isn’t as good; you need a warm, dry piece of bread to help the flavors burst in your mouth. Third is the cottage cheese…you don’t taste it at all, but it makes the tuna salad so rich and creamy.

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(196 ratings)

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert!
