Tuna with Rice Pilaf

Recipe by  

"A simply delicious meal! Sure to make your kitchen smell amazing! This recipe is very versatile, as well. For example, you may find it easier to use lima beans instead of edamame. Also you could use a different type of fish if you don't like tuna. You could even use fresh herbs for a burst of flavor! Feel free to experiment. Enjoy!"

Directions

  1. Place the rice and 2 cups water in a pot, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until tender. Season with thyme and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Gently stir into the cooked rice.
  3. Place the edamame in separate pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes, or until tender. Mix into the rice.
  4. Heat remaining olive oil in a skillet. Rub tuna with remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Place tuna in the skillet, and cook to desired doneness. Set aside, and keep warm.
  5. Place shallots in skillet. Increase heat to high, and pour in 3/4 cup water. Cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/2 cup, then stir in chives, orange zest and orange juice. Arrange fish over the rice and drizzle with the sauce to serve.

My family enjoyed this meal. My prep time was a bit longer do to being new to cooking, and shelling the beans.

Made half withv tofu & half with salmon steaks. Too much work. Also I used dries peas cooked instead of edamame as that is what I had on hand.
