I was at a loss as to what to cook this evening. I brought out my cookbook "Lidia's Italy," and went to one of the yellow tabs that my husband attached to a recipe he found interesting. One of the recipes he like was Grilled Tuna with Oregano. I stopped at Whole Foods on the way home from work and picked up tuna there. It was $25.99/lb. Just to be curious, I also decided to stop at Mr. Shrimp in Belmar to see what he charges for tuna. Mr. Shrimp's price was $18.99/lb. I should have went their first, oh well. I should also check out the tuna prices at Wegmans the next time I'm there.
Lidia's recipe is as follows. I am adjusting the recipe to serve two people. I also purchased green zucchini at Matt's Farm Market. . I'll slice it long ways using my mandoline and brush it with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Brown rice will round out the meal and a tossed salad. It's 3:27, time to feed Daisy and start supper.
