Prep 10 min
Cook 10 min

  • 2 avocados
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar (eyeball it)
  • 1/4 cup tamari (dark soy sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons honey (eyeball it)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Four 6-ounce tuna steaks
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
  1. Thickly slice the avocados lengthwise and coat with the lime juice to prevent browning; set aside. In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring the vinegar, tamari and honey to a low boil. Lower the heat and simmer until syrupy, 6 to 7 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Sprinkle the tuna with the five-spice powder and season with salt and pepper. Place the tuna in the skillet and cook, turning once, until just browned, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Slice the tuna and top with the sesame seeds and chives.
  3. Divide the lettuce among 4 plates and top with the tuna and avocado. Drizzle with the dressing.

Serves 4

  • 2 pounds small red-skinned or yukon gold potatoes
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • A few sprigs thyme
  • One 3-inch piece lemon peel
  • Pepper
  • Four 6-ounce salmon fillets, skinned
  • 4 slices black-pepper bacon
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into spears
  • One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and grated
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 2 pinches crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (dark soy sauce)
  1. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450°. In a large saucepan, add the potatoes and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, salt the water and cook until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.
  2. While the potatoes are working, in a saucepan, combine the chicken broth, cream, thyme sprigs and lemon peel and steep over medium-low heat. Pour over the drained potatoes and mash together; season with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, then wrap each fillet with the bacon. Arrange the fish on a broiler pan and roast until the bacon is almost crisp and the fish is almost firm, about 12 minutes.
  4. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss together the broccoli, ginger, garlic, EVOO and crushed red pepper; season with salt. Roast in the lower third of the oven until tender, about 12 minutes.
  5. In a small saucepan, bring the maple syrup and tamari to a boil. Baste the salmon liberally with the glaze and cook for 1 minute more. Serve with the mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Recipe & picture courtesy of Rachael Ray

4 SERVINGS
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 20 min

  • 6 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons softened
  • 1 sun-dried tomato packed in olive oil, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped scallion
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound small new potatoes
  • Four 6- to 8-ounce halibut fillets
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  1. In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, sun-dried tomato, scallion and garlic; season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large saucepan, add the potatoes and enough salted water to cover. Cover and bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, then smash the potatoes with 1 tablespoon butter; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then coat lightly with the flour. In a large nonstick skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the fish and cook, turning once, until golden and firm to the touch, 7 to 8 minutes total.
  4. Transfer the fish to 4 serving plates and top with the tomato-scallion butter. Serve with the smashed potatoes.

**Personal Review:When I ran to the store to grab some halibut they didn’t have any – so I substituted tilapia, which was just as good.  The fish came out excellent.  I added a bit of garlic to the butter when I melted it in the skillet to help give this fish a bit more flavor.  The tomato, scallion, garlic butter mixture was AWESOME – make more than this recipe suggests – I feel it wasn’t enough.  Also – the potatoes took much longer than 15 minutes to cook, I would suggest cutting them up before boiling to speed up the process.  Overall this came out wonderful and I plan on making this again!
