Pretty fair fare tonight!

Tonight we had SeaPak's Seasoned Ahi Tuna Steaks with spinach and peas and carrots. I'd planned to have salad, also, but we're out of salad stuff...
tuna, heart healthy, low carb
The tuna steaks were excellent but although a serving is listed as one we each wanted more! I'd only prepared two, though, so we sucked it up and just ate our tuna and vegetables.

The tuna comes pre-seasoned and although the seasoning is good, its a little on the salty side for me. Next time I'll rinse some of it off the fillet before baking.

One of the nice things about this meal is that it took less than 20 minutes, from beginning to end, to prepare. It's also heart healthy, low in carbs, and although it isn't what I'd call dirt cheap, it was quite reasonable. The box of two steaks costs slightly less than $5 and I can't even get greasy fried fish for that price around here.

Will we have Seapak's Seasoned Ahi Tuna Steaks again? You bet we will! And pretty regularly, too. :)

Looks really good! I've had some of those pre-seasoned meats before and yes, they are extremely salty.

You've figured out your new camera pretty quickly. The picture is awesome!

Laurie, the tuna was excellent. We just went grocery shopping and spent (gulp) $104.40!! It's expensive to eat low carb & healthy! We didn't buy those tuna steaks again but did buy some other fish varieties. We're experimenting to see which ones we like and don't like. So far, we like 'em all. ;)

I'm still getting used to the camera but as time passes its a little easier. Thanks. :)

I love tuna steaks, but they are so expensive here. I'll have to look to find that brand. The best is when my boss goes fishing and brings the stuff back fresh. OMG...heaven on a fork!!

Jolie, fresh is definitely best! Frozen is the best I can do for now but the Seapak brand is definitely tasty and of good quality. Let me know if you try them.
