Friday Food of the Day – January 29, 2016



Tuna 101

A saltwater finfish found in warm seas, tuna belongs to a subgroup of the mackerel family. Tuna are streamlined and fast, and some breeds can swim at speeds up to 46 mph.


  • Tuna season runs from late spring to early fall, but tuna is available in frozen steak form year-round.
  • Depending on variety, tuna steak color ranges from light pink to a deep, dark red.
  • As soon as you leave the fish market, get your tuna into the refrigerator. Store it in the coldest part.
  • Eat your tuna within 24 hours of purchase.



By: Tessemaes All Natural®


  • ½ cup Tessemae’s Asian Ginger Seafood Marinade (Or your favorite).
  • 4 tuna steaks (about 6 ounces each… we used Albacore tuna)
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and caps sliced
  • 4 cups shredded purple cabbage (1/2 head)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


  1. In a baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of Tessemae’s All Natural® Asian Ginger marinade over the tuna. Let marinate at least 15 minutes at room temperature or up to one day refrigerated.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons Asian Ginger over medium-high. Add the shiitakes and cook, tossing, until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the cabbage and another 2 tablespoons of Asian Ginger. Cook, tossing, until cabbage is wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cilantro and lime juice.
  3. Heat a grill or grill pan to high. Sear the tuna until it is browned and releases from the grill, about 2 minutes. Flip over and sear the other side the same way, for rare tuna. Serve the fish over the cabbage stir fry, with plenty more Asian Ginger.

Notice: The consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, meat, poultry, seafood or shellfish may increase your risk of food borne illness.
