After a couple of weeks of looking after stressed out brides and bridesmaids my Sunday Reading post will be the second in my Hen Party Series and will be about how to plan a stress free hen party. Everyone talks about Wedding Season but these last few weeks I think I have experienced my very own Hen Party Season!
I wouldn’t have it any other way, I just love the feeling I get when I have helped someone with an important part of their special day.
My other passion is cooking and I thought I would fit a quick recipe post in between Party Planning!
I have had a super busy day packing orders, responding to emails and continuing with various stages of wedding planning so when my lovely man told me he fancied a nice home cooked meal, as opposed to our usual quickie Fish Friday at Wetherspoons it was the last thing on my mind…..But my man works so hard (in a very physical job) and is so brilliant to me. He works his own job then comes home and works with me on our business without question and never moans. The least I can do is make sure he has a home cooked meal after a hard days work.
My passion for cooking came from meeting Mr Seaside, before that I was strictly a cocktails and pizza girl but that would never work in this relationship and now I am a career girl/housewife!! The man changed my life and I love him!!
Anyway I digress I just wanted to share the yummy recipe I whipped up because it really was just delicious!
Friday is our fish theme so I popped down to our local market and treated us to tuna steaks from the fish counter. I am also Budget Girl so this really was a treat. i then used the rest of our local shops to buy the veg, salad and of course the wine! I believe in using local businesses and supporting them.
Anyway here is the recipe for my marinated tuna steak!
2 tuna steaks (if you are on a budget Iceland do them for a good price frozen)
60mls orange juice
60mls soy sauce
2 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tbsp lemon juice
Black pepper to taste
Mix all the marinade ingredients and place in large dish. Add tuna and turn a couple of times to coat. Place in fridge for at least 30 mins.
While this is in the fridge I like to prepare a salad with a vinaigrette dressing. Here’s how I do it.
Cut up finely any salad items you want to add and then mix the following for the dressing;
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard (add more according to taste)
1tsp honey (again add more to taste)
salt and pepper
Mix together in a bottle or use whisk and drizzle over salad.
Once tuna is ready add a little oil to a frying pan and add tuna, fry for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Turn over and baste with the marinade and fry for a further 3-5 mins.
Your meal is now ready!! Serve with new potatoes and salad. To make it extra tasty add salt and butter to your potatoes…..YUMMY!
The lovely Mr Seaside more than approved and so did our cat!! Gourmet meal for Beau. I also made too many potatoes much to our chickens delight, seems to be their favourite food!!
Oh and don’t forget to serve with a lovely cold white wine!
