Tuna makes a wonderful light appetizer…

10 - Tuna Steaks

Tuna is great both as a main course or sliced and served as light appetizer.  Either way you serve it, this recipe for Sesame Tuna will impress your family and friends. I like to use Ahi tuna for this dish and I have only been able to find it frozen or previously frozen but thawed. The mix of black and white sesame seeds makes the dish really special but I’ve also made it with just the white sesame seeds and it’s still delicious.  Be sure to buy only sustainable and ocean friendly caught tuna like the kind with the Ocean Wise label.

Quick and Easy Gumbo


I found myself short on time but craving something yummy and warming for a cool day. Gumbo in less than an hour? There are many variations of gumbo and my version is light and flavourful, made with chicken breast, sausages, prawns and lots of fresh veggies. The thickener in this gumbo is okra instead of flour.  So, try my recipe for Shrimp, Chicken and Sausage Gumbo and let me know what you think.  It’s so easy and can be made in under an hour from start to finish.
