Ahi Tuna Dinner

Tonight we had a very simple dinner: Ahi Tuna, Rice Pilaf and Chard with garlic.
The Rice Pilaf was from a box, Organic Rice Pilaf from Trader Joe's.
Overall, the dinner took about 30 minutes to cook. The rice took the longest, about 25 minutes. Both V and I thought it was very good, though the soy/mustard coating didn't come through very strongly. G actually tried the tuna and thought it was good. I had hoped for a pretty picture but no batteries, maybe next time.

Ahi Tuna

Mix 2-3 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp dry mustard and 2 Tbsp vermouth.
These are all approximations.
Coat the Ahi Tuna steaks (I had 2, 1.4 lb total) with the soy sauce mixture and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
Spray nonstick skillet with oil and cook tuna over medium high heat, approximately 3 minutes per side.

Chard with Garlic

3 cloves of garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 bunch chard, washed and then leaves sliced

Slice garlic very thinly. Saute over medium heat in olive oil until starting to turn brown. Add sliced chard and cook until chard is bright green and wilted.
