I have been struggling trying to figure out how to go about this “food blog.” I love other people’s blogs, but mine is seriously off to a rocky start. I can’t think of anything to cook and I really can’t think of much to say about what I fix for dinner. Friday night my friend Sam came over for dinner, and I explained I was doing this blog and that I really need something good to blog about. Obviously her first reaction was to laugh at me because I was taking pictures of my food.
We decided to grill some fish, I bought some tuna steaks that day and Sam bought some salmon, already marinated, and some crab cakes. I found a recipe on foodnetwork.com for an Orange and Rosemary marinade, I believe it was one of Rachel Ray’s 30 Minute Meals. It sounded amazing so I decided Marc and I would be having Orange and Rosemary Tuna Steaks. It was really easy orange zest, rosemary, garlic, salt, pepper and oil and vinegar. Mixed it all together let the steaks set for about 15 – 20 minutes. Marc does the grilling in the house, one time I tried and the smoke alarms went off…never again! So I am not sure how long he grilled them for, but it only seem like a few minutes, I like my tuna pretty much rare anyway.
We also put some asparagus in foil and roasted that on the grill. Along with Sam’s salmon and crab cakes.
The tuna steaks came out amazing! Sam even passed up her salmon for our tuna.
