Paleo Surf n Turf

The hubster just came home from a two week TDY (business trip) and I thought a Surf n Turf dinner would be nice to come home to:

What says welcome home than a T-bone?!

This dinner was wicked easy to put together…. especially since I let him do most of the work!  If you have one of these husbands laying around… tell him to fire up his grill!

1. While your hubster starts the coals for the grill: take the steaks out of the fridge and out of the wrappers.

2. Make a rub… heres mine:

  • 2 t granulated garlic
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 t cumin
  • salt and peppa

3. Dice red onion, tuna (from any Japanese grocery store in the sashimi section), avocado and mango (dice the red onion a tad bit smaller than the rest).

4. Make the dressing:

  • 1 1/2 t minced ginger
  • 1 t minced garlic
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 t coconut aminos
  • 2 t sesame oil

5. Grab a small bowl and add diced onions, then pack in the diced tuna, avocado and then the diced mango.  Press firmly but don’t squish… finesse it.  Layer the diced yumminess until it reaches the top of the bowl.

6. Slice up a watermelon.

7. Rub one side of the steaks with your rub, the other half with salt & pepper.  Give your husband the steaks.  Remind him not to over cook them.

8. Open a bottle of wine, unless your preggo, then make sure your doors are locked.

9. Plate your Tuna Salad by placing the plate upside down on your bowl.  Flip the bowl and plate.  Slowly remove the bowl… slowly!  It tastes the same if a few squares fall of out place, trust me.

10. Top your sexy salad with the dressing.

11. Sprinkle a few sesame seeds on top.

12. Throw some watermelon on your plate.  Add salt if you’re from the South (or know where the “South” is).

13. Wait for your husband to come in the door with perfectly cooked steaks.

14. Add your steaks to your plate and fight over whether or not butter is paleo.

Cheers.
