Grilled Tuna

There is nothing better than tuna on the grill, or at least that is my opinion.  The tuna we got came from SeaBear who have excellent seafood.  As I was making part of this meal I told my husband that I don't know how this experiment will turn out, his comment was your experiments always turn out great.  I have to say he was right.

Grilled Tuna
2 tuna steaks
juice from 1 lemon
1/2 cup tamari (soy sauce)
2 cloves garlic crushed
Combine lemon juice, tamari and garlic.  Place tuna in a container and add liquid.  Marinate for about 30 minutes at room temperature.  Heat grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Place tuna on grill and cook for no more than 4 minutes per side.  This depends a lot on how you like your tuna cooked.  Our tuna was rather thick and we like our tuna more on the rare side.

Fried Buckwheat Soba Noodles with Mixed Mushrooms
I had a package of soba noodles and decided that this would be our side dish.  Sometimes it is a matter of digging through the pantry to see what you have and what you want to cook.  I try to plan meals out so that I have the ingredients on hand but sometimes that doesn't necessarily work.
Cook 1 package of soba noodles to package directions
1 package of frozen mixed mushrooms, thawed
Fish Sauce
In a skillet add a little bit of ghee, let melt over medium heat.  Add mushrooms and cook slightly.  Add cooked soba noodles.  Toss noodles with mushrooms.  Continue to cook.  Add a little bit of fish sauce (this will add a nice flavor to the noodles).  Continue to cook, turning constantly until a few noodles become crispy.  Serve with tuna.

Along with the tuna we had a side salad.  The salad consisted of salad greens we picked up at the farmers market on Saturday.  A fresh diced tomato and fresh feta cheese was added.

On the bottom part of the picture is a breakfast radish from our garden.  My husband is a big fan of radishes, I am not.
