Follow Me To The Market

I could never resist a farmers’ market. I enjoy checking out what the local vendors have brought
to market, taking some time to meet them and then planning a menu. Right here in our own
backyard, Baldwin County has a real gem in the Coastal Alabama Farmers and Fishermen’s
Market in Foley.

It’s Summertime and the living is supposed to be easy. So, something easy that doesn’t require a lot of prep time is high on the list. Four vendors helped create the dinner menu tonight: SHRIMP on the GO, Forland Family Farm, Sweet Bee Farm, and Mood Rock Baking.

On the Menu:
Sesame Seared Tuna (SHRIMP on the GO and Sweet Bee Farm)
Sweet Corn (Forland Family Farm)
Curried Brown Rice
Grilled Peaches (Forland Family Farm)
Lemon French Macarons (Gluten-Free) (Mood Rock Baking)

The tuna, sweet corn and peaches can all go on the outdoor grill.

Sesame Seared Tuna
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Up to four Tuna steaks
½ cup sesame seeds
1. In a bowl, stir together the soy sauce, honey and sesame oil. Divide into two equal parts. Stir the rice vinegar into one part and set aside as a dipping sauce.
2. Spread the sesame seeds out on a plate. Coat the tuna steaks with the remaining soy sauce mixture, then press down into the sesame seeds to coat.
3. Spray grill grates with a cooking spray such as PAM and bring the grill to high heat. Place the tuna steaks on the grill and sear for about 30 - 60 seconds on each side. Serve with the dipping sauce and if you like, wasabi paste.
