I'm back from outside Charlotte and I have to admit - I have no cooking or styling mojo left. Nothing that won't be solved by a few days of R&R (rest and red wine). I'm making this post not because this photo is a vision...because it's not.
I'm posting about my dinner tonight to give a big shout-out to a blog that I visit quite often: Stephen Cooks. As far as recipes and home cooking go, this blog is the bees knees. When Stephen posted about his wasabi pea crusted tuna, I swooned. On my trip this past week, I actually dined on a version of this dish...but knew it could be executed better. I stopped by Whole Paycheck and bought sushi grade tuna for just such dish. I have to say...its pretty fabulous. The flavors of the wasabi peas are killer with the tuna - I added some black sesame seeds to my coating. Rather than a dipping sauce, I garnished my plate with some Rooster sauce - out of sheer laziness - and called it a night.
