Blackened Tuna with Fruit Salsa

I was in the mood for a grilled steak last night, but, well, the weather was less than cooperative. So, what’s a girl to do? The next best thing…tuna steak.

Since my last attempt at blackening seasoning yielded lackluster results, this time I took a little help from The Fresh Market. After coating the tuna steak on both sides with blackening seasoning, I pan-seared it for a couple of minutes on each side.

Earlier in the week, I made a fruit salad with pineapple, mango, kiwi, strawberries, grapes, and a sprinkle of sweetened coconut flakes. I added chopped serano pepper and cilantro to the leftover fruit salad (minus the grapes) for my fruit salsa. This made a perfect topping for the tuna!

To round out the meal, I prepared mambo rice, black beans, and sugar snap peas. Delish! The only problem? No room for dessert!

What do you like to cook when the weather outside is frightful?
