You may have seen my recent lament about cleaning the refrigerator
“Just cleaned my fridge. Something creepy just escaped. It ran out the door, screaming something about invading Cleveland”
Among the items buried in the back of the freezer was a thick tuna steak, which we bought about six months ago to make Orange Chipotle Seared Tuna. It’s a great recipe. I highly recommend it.
Whenever I find good quality fish at a good price, I buy extra and freeze it. Of course, I do run the risk of forgetting those bargains as they make their way to the back of the freezer.
So here I was with this slightly freezer burned piece of tuna that I really didn’t want to throw away.
How could I save it?
Searching the interwebs, I found several recipes for Olive Oil Poached Tuna.
I added the poached tuna to whatever veggies I found in the fridge, topped it with shaved Parmesan, and made this, rather satisfying salad…
The tuna turned out great! The salad was delicious!
