Ahi Tuna Rice Bowls are perfect for those busy hectic nights where you don’t want to cook, but need something healthy on your dinning room table. Seared Ahi Tuna joined with white rice and sautéed vegetables, this is one meal you won’t want to pass up.
I was never a seafood person growing up. I just didn’t like the smell or texture. I knew I was missing out because I would see people eating these fun and cool seafood dishes. I remember thinking to myself that I wished I liked seafood and could eat it like others.
Fast forward 15 years and guess what?! Yep you guessed right…I like seafood now. YAY! It was more of a gradual process, but I can now say that I’ll try almost any type of seafood. I’m still kinda of wary of oysters and mussels, but anything else and I’ll give it a go.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try this amazingly delicious Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna. You guys I can not tell you how good this Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna is. It’s fresh and good quality. When I first tried the Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna I felt like I just ordered an expensive seafood dish. It was seriously so delicious.
One of my big hang ups with seafood was the smell. I just couldn’t deal with it. But now that I eat seafood I’ve come to realize what good fish smells like vs. not so good fish. Let me tell you that this Bumble Bee SuperFresh® smells and tastes amazing! No fishy smells here and because you prepare Bumble Bee SuperFresh® straight from the freezer, there isn’t any smell associated with thawing fish. Their frozen protein has stayed that way from harvest to your oven unlike most of the “fresh” fish you find at the seafood counter. That means its fresh tasting, and fresh smelling.
I knew when I received this Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna I had to make a rice bowl. You see my hubby, Sean is the biggest seafood and rice fan. He could eat it every day and never tire of them. I wanted to surprise him with this Ahi Tuna Rice Bowl because it was something I’ve never made before and I knew he would love it.
I’ve made a similar recipe before with some shrimp, but we’ve never had Ahi Tuna before. To tell you he was excited is an understatement. He was on could 9. He ate not only one bowl, but two.
The whole family loved these rice bowls, which in my family is a great accomplishment. It’s a rare day when all four of us like a recipe, but the kids kept asking for seconds. To bad Sean ate all the leftovers, ha!
These rice bowls only take 20-30 minutes to make and are perfect for those busy nights. I got the pre-cut vegetables from the grocery store to save on time too. This dish comes together so quickly and the clean up is minimal. I love when meals like this are easy to make, healthy and have minimal clean up. That is a win win recipe in my book. 🙂
Another plus about this Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna that Sean liked, is it’s a delicious treat with a side of soy sauce and wasabi. Instead of a heavy snack, you can have Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna as a snack. Make sure to check out Bumble Bee SuperFresh® full line of products.
