Blackened Teriyaki Tuna

Every Wednesday, my family and I sit down to an episode of Survivor, and we like to eat white rice, as a tribute, while we watch our favorite show. This Wednesday, we had the most delicious meal. Even my kid liked it! I had to tell him the peas were “candy from the earth”. Hey, don’t judge me. Watching those guys starve on t.v. makes us thankful we have food to eat!
