Ahi Tuna with Sautéed Radish and Zucchini & Assorted Leftovers (recap day 32, 4/13/20)

Today we had some awful storms. Luckily we didn’t lose power but our yard is under many inches of water. A reminder that nature keeps going on despite everything else grinding to a halt.

For lunch we split the leftover empanadas and the tiny bit of turkey salad leftovers on some saltines.

For dinner, I defrosted some Ahi tuna steaks I had bought at Aldi and sautéed them up with some lemon pepper, radishes, red onions, and zucchini. The zucchini was looking a little worse for wear and the radishes were getting soft and it was an easy way to use them up. If you haven’t had a cooked radish, it’s worth trying! They stay peppery but have a softer texture. We also had some of the potato-cauliflower gratin on the side.

We haven’t been using our freezer stash because we’ve been eating meat as they expire but we have a bit of a lull. I have some ground chicken I need to use up but what I have planned involves tomorrow’s produce delivery. It was a treat to have seafood instead! The trick is not to overcook the tuna and leave it a bit rare inside. It defrosts very quickly in cold water so it doesn’t require much planning. I’ve even cooked it directly from frozen.

We watched the next episode of Deadwater Fell and the season finale of Murdoch Mysteries on Acorn.
