Seared Tuna with Avocado Salsa
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 tuna steak and about 1/3 cup salsa)
Before you sear the tuna, be sure to get the pan screaming hot--this gives you a deep crust without overcooking the interior. Look for yellowfin tuna caught using the troll or pole-and-line technique.
1 cup halved grape tomatoes
1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 avocados, peeled and diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
4 (6-ounce) tuna steaks
Combine first 9 ingredients in a medium bowl.
Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl, stirring until brown sugar dissolves. Reserve 1 tablespoon soy sauce mixture. Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat pan evenly with cooking spray. Add steaks to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness, basting steaks frequently with soy mixture. Remove steaks from grill pan; drizzle with reserved 1 tablespoon soy mixture. Serve fish with salsa.
JC'S Blackberry Fizz:
1 oz. Cognac
1 oz. Blackberry liqueur
3/4 oz. Simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Combine Cognac, blackberry liqueur, simple syrup and Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well then strain into a glass. Top with a splash of sparkling wine.
BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs? You don't want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
