Albacore Tuna en Papillote, Tri-color Couscous, and Roasted Asparagus

Mojo Sauce
This is a such a versatile sauce that you can use in so many ways. We used it to make this tuna and served it with pork, too (post to follow).

In a 2-cup pitcher, or measuring cup, whisk:
2 Shallots, finely minced
Zest of one orange, grated
Juice of one orange
3 cloves Garlic, finely minced
3/4 cup Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Albacore Tuna en Papillote

Just from the oven
Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
Place 2 sheets of foil (or parchment paper) on a rimmed baking sheet.
In the center of each piece of foil, place 2 slices of lemon.
Then place one Albacore steak on the lemon slices.
Cover each with 2 – 3 Tablespoons Mojo Sauce.
Seal foil packets and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, depending on how well-done you like your fish.
Be careful opening pouches and use a spatula to move lemons and fish to plates.
Roasted Asparagus
Snap ends off 1 bunch fresh Asparagus
Place in an 8 x 8-inch baking pan.

Drizzle with Olive Oil.

Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper.

Place in the oven while the fish is cooking.

Tri-color Couscous
Couscous must be the easiest hot side dish ever!  If you can boil water, you can make it!  Just follow the directions on the package.  We made ours with Olive Oil and topped it with Parmesan Cheese.

    Delicious-looking dinner. I just googled Mojo sauce and, you’re right, it is versatile. Would like it with fish but also, as you suggested, pork. I made a tenderloin last week that was delicious with the rub I used but think I’ll give this sauce a try next time.

    OMG, look at that fabulous piece of fresh tuna. To me it’s better than any steak. Our favorite way to eat tuna is raw, but cooked en papillote sounds delicious too. I’ve never used a Mojo sauce. I will definitely give it a try.

    Love the snap of the floats.
