What a nice half-way-around-the-year reminder of my "Paleo on 100 dollars a month" challenge.
A friend called and mentioned that her friend's son went out fishing near San Diego and caught this huge tuna. She was offered some, but was unprepared for two details.
First, she was given a ton of it.
Second, she found she doesn't like tuna.
Did I want to take it off her hands? Sooooooo, here I am, after an unsuccessful market run looking for suitable epi-paleo eats on a budget, and an entire platter of freshly-caught tuna just drops into my lap, right before dinner. Already perfectly seasoned. She told me to keep the platter, too.
Since it was already seasoned in a rich blend of garlic, lime and some kind of Middle-Eastern seasoning blend, I decided not to eat it raw. I didn't have to do anything except plop the huge slabs of tuna in a pan and lightly steam it until it was cooked enough to flake.
Mmmmm! Tuna for dinner. Tuna for breakfast. Tuna all week. Tuna coming out of my ears. Tuna making me friends with all the neighborhood dogs and cats. Tuna making me happy, too.
