One of my Hubby’s favorite dishes to order in restaurants is Seared Ahi Tuna.
Bone Fish Grill is no exception.
There they serve it all dressed up with pickled ginger and wasabi.
I prefer to pair it with garlicky spinach wilted in a splash of sesame oil, and some sticky rice.
They all go together so well.
Perfect for my veggie girl.
I never pass up a chance to get some protein in her carbo loaded diet.
Fills up the constantly growing Man/Boy.
Not an easy feat, that’s where the rice comes in.
This dish is no longer reserved for dinner parties and fancy dinners out.
Instead, it will be a featured often here on our table.
