Broiled Citrus Tuna with Rice and Spinach

I'll admit it.  Before tonight, the only tuna I ever ate came from a can.  Time to try something new, right?  Well today I went to the nearest Harris Teeter store and decided to purchase some tuna medallions since they were on sale.  I figured I figure out how to cook them when I got home.  Let me just say that I'm enjoying this fish.

Let me also add that ever since I bought this bag of peeled wheat, I've been trying new ways to eat it.  The peeled wheat and rice dish is a winner!

Tonight I was in my "I'm not really going to measure because I don't feel like doing many dishes" mood so you'll have to bear with me.  :-)

Broiled Citrus Tuna

  • olive oil
  • juice from half of a lime
  • juice from half of a lemon
  • a little orange juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • dash of soy sauce
  • a little rice vinegar
  • a little honey
Place tuna in a Ziploc bag along with the marinade.  Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  (I didn't wait that long because I was "hongry!")

Broil for 6-8 minutes on each side.  There should still be a little pink in the inside.  You don't want the tuna tough.

Rice and Wheat Dish
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 package of Herbox Sodium-Free Chicken Bouillion
  • about 3/4 cups of peeled wheat
  • about 1/2 cup of rice
Bring water and bouillon to a boil.  Add peeled wheat and cook until wheat begins to soften some but isn't done.  Stir in rice and cook until both are done.

I served this with steamed baby spinach.  Water, a dash of salt and that was it.

Bon Appetit!


  1. And she cooks too!!! Wow.. it's about dinner time for me and you are making me hungry. This sounds delicious. I will have to give it a try.

  2. Cici, you're hilarious! Now that I look at that plate again, I know my mom would say that I needed something orange up there. Baby carrots? Humm....
