Grilling on the Oregon Coast

by Blake MacKenzie from THREAD END, by Amanda Lee

Hi, everybody! Nice to meet you! I feel like I'm giving a cooking demonstration here today. But, hey, it's what I'm good at. After all, I--with my lovely wife Sadie--run MacKenzies' Mochas coffee shop.

As some of you may know, MacKenzies' Mochas is more than a coffee shop. In addition to specialty coffees, we serve sandwiches, salads, and baked goods. But I feel like I really shine when I'm at the grill!

Today, I'm making Grilled Rosemary Albacore Tuna Steaks. I found a recipe that's similar to my own at SparkRecipes. This is a low-carb, high-protein meal that's easy to prepare, even after a long day at work. It takes less than thirty minutes to put this meal on the table.

Here's the recipe. Let me know how you like it!

Grilled Rosemary Albacore Tuna Steaks

Ingredients

    3 raw albacore tuna steaks weighing 3.5 oz. each
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
    2 sprigs rosemary, minced

Directions

Whisk together the olive oil, wine, garlic, salt and rosemary. Pour over the tuna steaks in a shallow dish or in a Ziploc bag. Cover and refrigerate 15-20 minutes.

Grill on an outdoor or indoor grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked through but still tender. Serve immediately.

  5. I haven't stitched embroidery in probably 40 years. Bad me! If I ever get caught up with my scrapbooking (and stranger things have been known to happen!), I think I should take it up again. I still have my hoops, but I'm guessing the floss might need replacing, LOL.
    Thanks for the recipe today. I am always trying to add fish (esp. tuna or salmon) to my diet. It really does help my memory!

  10. I love embriodery. I bought some generic color t-shirts and ironed on Chinese designs and now have something special to wear. Have too many embriodered pictures to hang so I decided to do something that I could wear.. I love embriodery chatter so I know that I would love this book.

  17. I love Cozies and recipes, so of course I love Cozies that come with recipes! Love the sound of this Book and like the idea of Rosemary with the tuna. Grilled makes it even better! Should be a really unique flavor along with all the other yummy ingredients!

  33. Such a quick and easy recipe - and my BBQ just rotted away, so I can't even try it.
    Maybe I could win a replacement grill somewhere...Thanks anyway, it sounds great.

  35. I love this series. But sorry to say, a grilled cheese to me is just that cheese and bread. nothing fancy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wonderful recipe. I'll have to try it sometime if I can wrest control of the grill away from my hubby. :-)

  39. It sounds easy enough but I never have wine in my house since I don't drink. Do you think you could use apple juice instead?

  42. This sound like a lovely recipe. Wonder if hubby could use a different fish just as well? {Hubby is the cook in our family - lol ] He likes to grill - last night we had chicken leg-thigh quarters marinaded in Italian dressing and then grilled. And of course, he does steak as well. Usually the fish he cooks is done in the oven, baked.

    It's been years since I have embroidered. I used to do some crewel embroidery, and then I started doing cross stitch. But even that's been several [many] years ago. I need to get back to it tho == I have a great-grandson on the way and bought a kit to do a 'birth' hanging.
