This week’s French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Spice-Crusted Tuna. We were lucky enough to find freshly caught Ahi on the Fresh Fish Fanatics boat at at the Farmers’ Market on Sunday. John sliced it into beautiful steaks, coated it in an aromatic blend of spices that included ginger, coriander, and cardamom, then pan-fried it in just a bit of olive oil. So simple & so delicious! We cook fresh fish quite often but this flavor combination had all of us wanting more.
We served it with a simple salad made from lettuce right from our garden. The only thing that could have made it better would have been eating it at a Paris cafe. Our niece enjoyed the rest of the tuna and salad for lunch the next day and was the envy of her co-workers. It’s safe to say this is a new family favorite! A quick, easy, and delicious dish that’s perfect for company, or a quick weeknight meal.
