I know, I know. You are sick of seeing fish. I probably should have just named this blog "Fish, fish, and more fish." Or maybe "A WHOLE lot of fish" would have been more apropos. But bear with me here.
This is tuna, once again.
Chris wanted to try something he remembered from when he worked at the Mediterranean restaurant Ayhan's on Long Island. They sauteed onions until soft, and tossed in red grapes cut in half (so they don't burst open, haha.) There was some more to the seasoning, but we season to taste, and it is usually on a whim. Once the onions and grapes are cooked a bit, he added a splash of red wine.
At the restaurant, this sauce would have been for chicken, but as we do not keep chicken in the house anymore, Chris had to improvise with seafood, so he used tuna steaks. We served the fish on a bed of spinach couscous with some pignoli nuts.
Normally I think white wine is better suited to seafood than red, but this came out pretty good- very tasty! Plus, it made for a very colorful meal.
What is the most interesting thing you have cooked/eaten lately?
