Fresh, Sustainable Seafood from DailyFreshFish.com
You may or may not know that I have developed an intense love for delivery services ever since Toddler Awesome was born. It just makes everything so much more convenient, especially as a newbie mom.
Recently I was introduced to a new delivery service called DailyFreshFish.com. They are an online delivery service that allows you to order dock-to-door, restaurant quality seafood that will be delivered to your door the next day. The service was launched by Pucci Foods, one of the oldest and largest sustainable seafood distributors in California. They’ve been around since 1918, so they must be doing something right!
I was interested in trying out DailyFreshFish.com because I love online delivery services and I love seafood. They have several different options of fresh fish available, and I was able to pick any type of fish from their selection. When I visited their website I was very impressed with the company’s committed to sustainability and green practices. They are a supporter of the Seafood Watch program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium which I like. Their packaging is all 100% recyclable as well, which is something I really appreciate because many online delivery services use excess packaging.
The ahi tuna steaks were ordered on Monday and arrived the next day on Tuesday. If you place your order by 2pm, it will arrive the next day. I could immediately tell the ahi was really good quality when I opened it and I decided to try my hand at searing the ahi tuna steaks. I’ve seared filet mignon steaks before and put them in the oven, but I’ve never seared ahi. I was excited to try it out. Here’s what I did:
- Took out my cast iron pan and heated coconut oil on medium heat
- Waited until the pan got hot and put the ahi tuna steaks on
- Cook for 2 minutes on each side
At first I only cooked each side for 1 minute and it didn’t seem cooked enough. The ahi tuna is sashimi grade, but I wanted to cook it a bit longer. That ruined my grill lines but oh well. I also tried to get fancy and sear the sides of the ahi tuna steaks because I heard that helps keep the juices in. It worked!
The result was a beautifully cooked ahi tuna steak that I served on top of a salad:
Yup, I was pretty proud of myself for how it turned out!
This fish was so good that I’ve teamed up with DailyFreshFish.com for a giveaway. Two lucky winners will win a pack of 2 6oz Ahi Tuna Steaks just like the ones I received. You can enter using the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
