HOW TO: Doubleheader - Mushroom Rice and Seared Citrus Tuna

You're getting a double-header today gang. This is actually two recipes that I use frequently, but I must keep separate, as the rice from the first step is worth its own mention. My wife raves about it and its a good addition to a lot of dishes.

Here we go!

First, start assembling your goodies...you know how I hade stopping in the middle to run to the store...

Ingredients

*2 teaspoons butter
*6 mushrooms, coarsely chopped
*1 clove garlic, minced
*1 green or sweet yellow onion, finely chopped
*2 cups veg broth
*1 cup uncooked white rice
*1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley or oregano
*salt and pepper to taste




Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.Sweat mushrooms, garlic and green onion until mushrooms are cooked and liquid has evaporated...5 min, stirring often.



Stir in broth and rice. Season with parsley/oregano, salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

That's it on this step. Now, we move on to the tuna!

*2 lemons
*1 orange
*2 tblsp olive oil
*salt, black pepper to taste
*oregano, basil to taste (tsp each)
*2 5 oz Ahi tuna steaks

Quarter the citrus and gather the juice in a zip-top bag.



You don't need a big fancy machine to do this.
Add in the olive oil, salt & pepper, oregano & basil. Shake (close the bag first please) and add tuna. Place in a plastic container, suck out the air, and seal. Stick it in the fridge for a while, let it do its thing.



I like to let mine chill for 15 or 20 mins, flip it over, then 15 mins on the other side. Much more than an hour and it gets a little too citrusy, if you get my meaning...is that even a word?

Anyhow, whip out the nonstick and heat a couple tablespoons of peanut oil. Yes peanut oil. Neutral flavor and a high smoke point make it perfect for fish. What, don't believe me? Fine. Try this with olive oil and get back to me...you'll destroy it.


Pinch of salt, a wee bit of pepper. I saved a couple wedges of lemon and orange before, I use one of each here to brighten the flavor.

With bigger, thicker steaks like this, it took 2.5 minutes per side to get the desired medium-rare I wanted...


Viola! Plate with the rice you made earlier and something else, if you like. I used asparagus as I really like the bitter greens to offset the tartness of the citrus.
