Fish Tacos


Fish Tacos

Ingredients:
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 lbs red snapper or white fish fillets
8 6-inch corn tortillas
2 cups shredded cabbage
8 Tbs Leigh Oliver’s Creamy Jalapeño Dip
Garnish: chopped cilantro and radishes

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425° F. To prepare tacos, combine cumin, smoked paprika, salt and garlic powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly over both sides of fish. Place fish on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and is opaque. Place fish in a bowl, and gently break into pieces with a fork. Cover tortillas with damp towel and heat in microwave on low until warmed through, about 30 seconds. Divide fish evenly among tortillas; top each with 1/4 cup cabbage and 1 tablespoon Leigh Oliver’s Creamy Jalapeño Dip.

Serve immediately with optional garnishes.



Product Talk: Canned Tuna


Why do we snub our noses at canned tuna? It’s a great, healthy food and it’s convenient, too! If tuna salad and tuna casserole are all you can think of, maybe you need to think again!

Tuna can make a quick weeknight supper. Stir a can into tomato sauce, add some spices and crushed red pepper. Serve over hot pasta and you’ll be a convert! Or add some tuna and roasted red peppers to your favorite tossed salad for a protein boost….or melt tuna, shredded cheddar and a tomato slice on an English muffin. See what we mean?

Canned tuna generally comes in light, white and albacore varieties. White and albacore (terms are used interchangeably) are generally milder and chunkier. You can also find tuna in pouches rather than cans. Many prefer the flavor of pouched tuna, since it doesn’t have water or broth included. It’s also very easy to take as a portable lunch!



Dine-In: Grilling Salmon


Seafood has never been my favorite category of food. I always eat fish for their omega-3 fatty acids, but have not really enjoyed it. A few weeks ago I was in a restaurant in Chicago looking over the menu. I looked at the chicken, which is normally what I pick, then the salmon and beef. The salmon came with roasted sweet carrots, asparagus and potatoes. The vegetables sounded delicious so, out of character, I selected the salmon. After one bite of the salmon I knew I made the right choice. As soon as I got back to Texas all I wanted was cedar plank salmon.

This weekend I strongly suggest grilling salmon for you and your family. Fresh salmon will give you the best results, but frozen will work just fine. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over your salmon; make sure the fish is evenly coated. Sprinkle your favorite seasoning over the fish. When I grill salmon I normally use either Julio’s or citrus grilling seasoning. Preheat your grill to medium heat. I recommend using either a fish basket or cedar plank to grill your fish. I personally enjoy using cedar planks to grill my fish. If you use the planks, soak them in water for at least an hour before grilling. Place your fish on the grill and grill for 5 minutes for every ½-inch thickness. I hope you and your family enjoy grilling salmon this weekend!

Healthy Living: Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic Crust


Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic CrustWhen we think about eating tuna, most of us think about tuna in a can.  While I have eaten plenty of tuna, I had never eaten a tuna filet until recently.  Tuna is very nutritional as a serving contains 179 calories, 1 gram of fat, zero carbs and 39 grams of protein.  A tuna fish sandwich has always been a staple around our house.

While dining out recently, I decided to be daring and try a seared tuna steak.  I’ve always eaten a lot of fish, but never had a tuna steak.  Wow!  It was light, healthy and delicious!  Since it was seared, it had the consistency of a tender steak rather than the flakiness of fish.  I liked it so much that I have prepared it at home several times over the past few weeks.  I found a great recipe at one of our recipe kiosks in our store.  These kiosks can be found in several of our stores and are a great resource for recipes.  Next time you want to cook a healthy meal try this easy and quick to prepare recipe:

Yellowfin Tuna with Pepper Garlic Crust
Servings:  4

4 (8oz.) Tuna Steaks, 1 ½ inch thick
