Hello again, I am just returning from being on the road for three weeks in one of our stores helping set up their meat and seafood department.  As I was working I discovered a new hidden goodie and was so excited about it that I couldn’t wait to share with you.

It’s called Bumble Bee Super Fresh Seared Ahi Tuna with Garlic-Peppercorn Rub. If you love Sushi, you are going to love this product! It’s like having a Sushi Chef right in your own home.

The Ahi Tuna is Wild Caught, quick seared to lock in the freshness, seasoned with olive oil, sea salt, peppercorn and garlic powder and the fillets are thinly sliced and vacuum-packed for freshness.  It’s so easy all you have to do is place it in the refrigerator, thaw and then it is ready to serve.

Here are a couple ways I have discovered to serve this product.

Toss it in a quick salad with fresh greens and top with ginger dressing.

Fold, place on a cracker and top with fresh chopped cilantro or bean sprouts and a drizzle of hoisin sauce, soy sauce or wasabi.

The crackers make an awesome appetizer for those great summer grilling parties or elegant appetizers for the holidays this December.  Now grab your favorite glass of wine, sit down and relax and enjoy….I did!
