Marinated Tuna Steak

Marinated Tuna Steak

After our Sushi Night Extravaganza, we were left with a leftover tuna steak. Since we didn’t want such a fresh cut of fish to go to waste, this is what I made.

Ingredients (for 4 tuna steaks):

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 (4 ounce) tuna steaks

Instructions:

  1. In a large non-reactive dish, mix together the orange juice, soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, oregano, and pepper. Place the tuna steaks in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil grill grate (or pan). Cook the tuna steaks for 5 to 6 minutes, then turn and baste with the marinade. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or to desired doneness. Discard any remaining marinade.

I dropped a picture here of when I chose to remove the steaks from the griddle. Since tuna steaks cook like actual steaks, its generally safe and tasty to leave some pink in the middle.

Amish Friendship Bread

Amish Friendship Bread

I just received a starter for Amish Friendship Bread.

The deal with Amish Friendship Bread is that typically, you receive a strange ziploc bag like the one pictures above from a friend and you follow the recipe at the bottom. The starter you get had flour, milk and sugar mixed to feed a live culture of yeast. You have to keep the bag for 10 days (on the 5th day, adding more flour and sugar), before you use it. This makes about 4 starter’s worth, which allows you to give three away and use one to go to the next step, adding some ingredients and baking.
