This Week’s Fresh Catch:

Monday Fish:
Steelhead Trout
Steelhead has a mild trout taste with tender, flaky and soft flesh and delicate flakes. Its taste is similar to Salmon. It’s excellent grilled, baked, seared, broiled, and pan fried.

Tuesday – Friday Fish: 
Local Sushi Grade Albacore Tuna
Fresh Albacore has a mild to medium flavor profile with firm flesh and large flakes. Like other tunas, it has a “steak-like” texture, but less firm than Yellowfin or Bigeye Tuna. It does however have a higher fat content which gives it a richness of taste.

Albacore Encrusted Tuna:
When you want to crust a tuna with nuts or crumbs such as pistachios, pecans, or bread crumbs, baking at 450 degrees is the way to go. The indirect heat won’t burn your coating. Place the tuna on a well-greased baking sheet and cook for about 15 minutes or to desired doneness.

The trick to a perfectly cooked tuna steak is to leave the center pink, much like a beef steak. Start testing the tuna after a few minutes and take a peek inside as you flake. Stop cooking when it reaches your preferred level of pink
