Tuna Cakes with Apple Salsa

Summer may not officially be here yet, but summer like weather has finally come to Wisco. In the spirit of summer, I’ve been motivated to try out some new yummy looking fruit and veg dishes.  I bought some apples the other day and I’ve been wanting to make an apple salsa, but wasn’t sure what to serve it with.  Then it occurred to me that I like apples in tuna salad, so some kind of tuna dish would probably work.

I found this tuna cakes recipe from Kraft and thought that it would work pretty well. Not only that but the tuna cakes (which I’ve never done before) are surprisingly good. Who knew fish from a can could be so scrumptious?  The tuna cakes were easy to throw together and cook up in only a few minutes, so these will probably be a new regular thing for me.

Quick & Simple Lemon-Garlic Halibut

Quick & Simple Lemon-Garlic Halibut

Halibut is a nice mild fish; this recipe takes advantage of that. This subtle combination of flavors compliments the halibut well.  You don’t need a lot of spice or brightness to cover up any fishy taste.  Not only that but it’s super easy to make, just heat up a butter sauce in the microwave and poor it over your fillets then stick it in the oven for ten minutes and you’re done!

Blackened Tilapia

I like making fish at home because it’s takes practically no time to cook for those nights that you’re in a hurry or you just aren’t up for spending a lot of time in the kitchen.  Even if the fish is frozen you can just throw it in a dish with an inch of water and it thaws in about 20 minutes.  Not only that, but it’s inexpensive and healthy too.  Win win win.

As with most blackened foods, this dish is pretty spicy (especially by midwestern standards), so if you aren’t sure about your spice tolerance, maybe start with half the amount of seasoning or at least cut down on the cayenne pepper.
