They say when you really have a passion for something you can talk about it for hours without getting bored. I’ve given it a lot of thought and I’m pretty sure the same school of thought applies to something you could eat for hours on end and still wish you had more stomach room so that you could keep on eating.
Seafood is that thing for me. I grew up in a seafood-loving family so it’s in my blood. We heart fish big time in our house.
I am stoked to have partnered up with the National Fisheries Institute to create an easy, simple, and super tasty fish recipe for you, and shed a little light on the amazingness that is seafood. In 2016, the National Fisheries Institute launched a seafood education initiative called Dish on Fish to help educate Americans about the importance of eating seafood, and to encourage seafood consumption.
You might not know that February is National Heart Month – well it is! The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) encourages Americans to eat 2-3 servings of seafood each week in order to really reap all of the heart-healthy benefits that seafood has to offer, and I’m here to make it easier for you to do just that!
I’ve already been sharing shrimp and salmon here on Creme de la Crumb for a long time because they’re two of my favorite, and most popular seafoods, and I’m really excited to be adding this delicious tuna recipe to the mix.
My father, who might be the biggest seafood fanatic in my entire (very large) family, went absolutely nuts over these sheet pan tuna steaks. He said they were cooked perfectly and the flavor was “outstanding”. He doesn’t say that about all fish recipes, he has high standards!
What my father didn’t know is how incredibly easy it is to make this recipe. Sheet pan meals are my bread and butter, they make weeknight cooking SO much simpler and take a lot of prep and thought out of planning your weekly menu since there’s an entree and a side dish all cooked together on the sheet pan.
This Sheet Pan Lemon Herb Tuna Steaks and Potatoes recipe is a breeze to whip up and packs maximum flavor into a dish with minimal ingredients in just 30 minutes. Your whole family will love this dinner!
