Dinner is one of the most important meals of the day. We like to mix it up and introduce our kids to a wide variety of foods while listening to their day and thoughts. Everything from produce, breads, seafoods, and more, we try to keep it new and introduce not just new foods but also new ways of preparing foods. Recently I have become a vegetarian, moving away from meat. My husband is from the Pacific Northwest and grew up fishing and even cleaning his own dinner, so it is a part of a culture with plenty of water and life! So he keeps seafood on the menu often.
Living in California, the coastal cities are very popular for seafood’s and offer many spectacular dishes. My husband likes to visit and use ideas he sees. He loves seafood and the New Bumble Bee SuperFresh® is an easy solution for busy weeknight dinner idea. He loves to try different foods, but being busy it is very hard to buy the freshest seafood and use it right away, things come up and dinner plans can change.
So keeping frozen options is the easiest choice for us. We love to take salads and top them so we decided to share a simple healthy idea using a Bumble Bee SuperFresh Seared Ahi Tuna. Using a fresh bed of greens and adding in other veggies, a dressing, then topping it with the Seared Ahi Tuna is super easy.
Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna
- Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna is the first ever sushi quality “Thaw and serve” packaged seafood product. It stays frozen during the processing and never fully defrosted or re-frozen during preparation, so we can guarantee our quality is on par with what you expect from fine chefs who know how to source the best product for their restaurants
- Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Ahi Tuna is a delicious treat with a side of soy sauce and wasabi, in a classic Nicoise Salad or served alongside your favorite seafood accompaniments.
Other Bumble Bee SuperFresh choices include Salmon and Talapia in come in different choices of flavoring. Fish is such a healthy and versatile food, low in fat and packed with high quality protein. Fish also includes high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids and many vitamins including D and riboflavin (B2). When prepared as instructed and dish will be simply delicious. One piece can go a long way so adding fish to a salad, or rice bed, or by itself, fish can be prepared in so many ways. There’s a number of varieties with something everyone in the house will enjoy. In fact, they make dinner so easy I feel like we’re having an gourmet dinner.
Fish is a low-fat high quality protein. Fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin). Also high in calcium and phosphorus as well as a great source of minerals including iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. For those who are health conscious, the American Heart Association recommends preparing fish at least twice a week as part for a a healthy diet and to help lower blood pressure and to help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Here is a easy but also very healthy and nutritious salad idea. A bed of greens, fruit, something for crunch, topped with succulent Bumble Bee SuperFresh Seared Ahi Tuna and a homemade dressing. The great thing about fish and just by changing dressing, the flavor profile will also change, experience and enjoy!
