Catch of the Day


The other day, while exploring the local gourmet supermarket, I came across some absolutely beautiful fresh tuna loin.

That evening I transformed it with a quick searing in a hot frying pan, into my dinner. I timed it to a perfect rareness and accompanied it with rough-mashed cauliflower and cherry tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

It reminded me of when I was living in Tenerife, the fishermen would bring in their catch and there was always a tuna or two. I'd buy a whole one and load up the freezer, plus Lupo loved a fillet or two for his dinner. From sea to dinner plate (or dog bowl) on the same day, there's nothing like it.

Oh it looks absolutely heavenly, mouthwateringly so.

Sigh, I took the easy way out tonight, stuck a pizza in the oven, lost myself in a book, and ended up burning the pizza....didja know blackened cheese isn't quite as bad as it sounds? Ah well, I wasn't really all that hungry anyway.

How do you make that rough mash cauliflower? Apart from mashing it obviously :) Do you add anything for flavour?

Sounds yummy! Looks delicious!

Wish I could get Cag to eat fish. We used to have it every other day when we lived in Brixham.

Straight from the boat to the table, Mmmmmmmm.
