Last night's dinner was a success despite the fact that it was all last-minute. I had heard on Alton Brown's Good Eats that you should buy your shrimp frozen since it's frozen soon after being caught and deveined. It was on sale at Ralph's so I bought a 2 lb. bag of shrimp and two ahi tuna filets that looked super fresh (and were not dyed the way they do with a lot of farmed salmon). I wasn't feeling too creative so I just marinated them in teriyaki sauce and coated them with a mixture of black and white sesame seeds. It turned out to be delicious. At first I thought I had cooked them too long (about 4 minutes a side) but they were perfectly pink inside.
I had some leftover fresh pinneapple that I turned into a quick salsa (a staple of mine, especially when it comes to seafood dinners) which livened up the basmati rice and makes the meal light and refreshing. We can't eat too healthy, now, can we? That's why I just had to make sweet potato tempura. Yum.
This will definitely be a repeat dinner soon.
