We are eating a lot of tuna right now! Give us ALL the tuna – steaks, tuna burgers, tuna sandwiches, tuna salads.  Why? We love that it is plentiful and sustainably caught – plus  packed with essential nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A, B6 and B12.

 

In fact, tuna steak and potatoes is one of our favorite dinners, so today we’re sharing this bold and flavorful sheet-pan tuna steak recipe with you. Ready in just 30 minutes (and using a minimal number of ingredients), this heart-friendly dish is seasoned perfectly and will leave you full and satisfied. It’s a must-try!

 

This easy-to-make meal makes weeknight cooking totally stress-free. Believe us when we predict your family will be asking for seconds.

 

And for a restaurant-quality meal in less time than it takes to order takeout try our Herb and Garlic Grilled Tuna Steaks recipe featuring tarragon, garlic, and tangy lemon zest.

 

First pick up our Great American Seafood Imports Co Brand Ahi Tuna Steaks.  You can find them in the freezer section at your local grocer/seafood monger.  If they don't have them, ask them to order it!

 

Keeping back up quality frozen seafood in your freezers is always a good idea, when seafood is frozen, the freshness is sealed in, meaning you still get the protein, vitamins and minerals that are found in fresh fish and shellfish. Its nutritional value is one thing, but another bonus from buying frozen seafood is that you can stock up and take advantage of sales in your local stores. And with a freezer full of frozen fish and shellfish, you can enjoy healthy seafood meals (at any mealtime) all year.
