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!

- Cook Time: 10 min.
- Cuisine: American, Japanese
- Servings: 2
- 2 Ahi Tuna Steaks

1Always prepare your rice first. If you are making rice, allow yourself 30 minutes to do so.
2Once the rice is finished, start preparing your tuna steak by taking a paper towel and absorbing any water on it's surface.
3Season with the blackening season.
4Bring a small amount of water to a boil, add peas, and cover-steam for 5 minutes.
5Place the butter or oil on a skillet and set on medium high for about 2 minutes.
6Once the skillet is nice and hot, place the Ahi on the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
7In a small, saucepan, start preparing the teriyaki sauce by add the soy sauce, 1/2 cup of water, garlic, and cornstarch to a saucepan. Whisk until combined well.
8Add the honey to taste, and blend in well.
