Marinated Ahi Tuna Steaks with Grilled Artichokes
Our first day back from camping, and although we stuck to our Paleo ways while vacationing.... I still found myself craving a lot of fresh veggies when I got home (it's just not the same roughing it in the wilderness). We kept a lot of non and not-so perishables handy while camping (fruit, dried fruit, nuts, jerky, canned tuna & chicken, eggs, sausage. For dinners we grilled chicken and steaks, with simple side salads. It worked out well!
I've also returned from vacation with a serious craving for fish! I came home from our re-stocking trip to the grocery store with 4 fish dinners for the week! Which I'm really looking forward to eating this week! Yum.
Tonight, Trader Joe's came through again with their marinated Ahi Tuna steaks (I got them in the freezer section). They are simply marinated in olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, cilantro, red chili flakes, salt & pepper.... not too bad at all! Simple, quick, and tasty!
Scott grilled some artichokes to accompany the tuna steaks (sliced in half with a little olive oil, pepper, and garlic powder).... and of course a large side salad! Oh, and lemon slices... which I squeezed over everything!
