One of the best things about living close to the beach is having fresh seafood at your fingertips. What a find with fresh, wild caught tuna in our local Publix!

For this dinner, here’s what you will need.

What You Will Need:

Wild Caught Tuna Steaks (make sure they are wild caught, a lot of farm raised fish are raised in unsanitary and inhumane conditions that can be harmful for you and your family)

Meyer Lemon

Butter

Garlic

Old Bay  Seasoning

Cilantro

Sweet Potatoes

Brown Sugar

Hearts of Romaine

Cucumber

Carrots

Shredded Cheese

Croutons

What’s Next:

We love to grill our fish, but you can always bake it too. To prepare your fish for their date with the grill, first roll out some aluminum foil. Place a few slices of butter onto the center of the foil and a few slices of lemon over the butter. Once prepped, place your fish on top.  Sprinkle the Old Bay Seasoning (or your favorite fish seasoning) along with some S&P (salt and pepper). Sprinkle some fresh minced garlic and cilantro over the fish and add another few slices of lemon and butter. Wrap up the tin foil around the fish like a tent and seal all of the edges firmly to hold in the steam. Place on the grill for about 10 minutes.

For the sweet potato portion of the meal, it’s simple… preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Place the sweet potato in the center of a piece of tin foil and pour over some EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), S&P and butter. Roll up the potato burrito style in the foil with all its yummy rolled up with it. Place in the preheated oven and set your timer for 20 minutes. When the timer goes off see if a knife will slide into the potato easily. If not, REMOVE from tin foil and put on a plate in the microwave for about 4 minutes to finish the potato. Cut open and add butter and brown sugar. YUM!

The salad part is the easiest. Chop your romaine and place into bowl. Add carrots, sliced and diced cucumber, cheese and croutons. Garnish with your favorite fruit and salad dressing.

Hope you enjoy this dish as much as we did!!
