As I often have the pleasure to do, I’ve been eating a lot of fresh fish from Anderson Seafoods lately. The fish from Anderson Seafoods is one of my favorite food items to present on QVC. The fact that it arrives at my door fresh (never been frozen) always astonishes me, and that freshness comes through when you cook and eat it. Absolutely delicious!
Then there’s the health aspect. No other part of my work life leaves me feeling as healthy as working with Anderson Seafoods! As a result, I eat more fish than anyone I know and I’m proud of that. Everyone has heard by now that we should eat more fish. Eating fish gives us the critical Omega-3 fatty acids that most of us are lacking. These fatty acids are such an important part of our general health and help to manage and prevent cardiovascular disease. On top of that, fish is low in saturated fat and high in protein – great for those watching their weight. Beyond the actual scientific facts, eating fish generally leaves me with a clean, healthy feeling (as long as I don’t eat it battered and fried!) which helps me feel mentally healthy too. No matter how you look at it, fish is a great choice.
The most recent species that I have been cooking up is perfect for this time of the year when all you want to do is get outside and grill – Albacore Tuna. Tuna is one of the very easiest fish to grill – it’s firm and won’t fall apart, making it very easy to manage. Albacore also benefits from the quick, high-heat cooking that you get from grilling, helping to keep it moist. It takes about 2 or 3 minutes per side on a hot grill for a 1-inch thick fillet if you want to cook it all the way through (and do try not to overcook it). I prefer my tuna rare (or even entirely raw), so I simply do 1-1/2 minutes per side. Then, you can simply dress the tuna with all kinds of salsas, sauces or even just a squeeze of lemon and you can have dinner on the table in no time. Tuna is super versatile – it adapts to all sorts of flavors. PLUS… and I always get excited about this, leftover tuna makes the BEST tuna salad ever. You’ll never want tuna out of a can again!
Tune into QVC on Monday, May 20th at 5pm ET to get your chance to order Anderson Seafoods’ Albacore Tuna. It’s coming straight from Fiji (no kidding!) AND is from a sustainable fishery that is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council. When you’re talking about putting food in your body (the only body you have), how can you go wrong with something that is healthy, tastes great and doesn’t cause any negative impact on the environment? That’s something to feel good about. Eat more Albacore!
