Bacon Wrapped Tuna With Jalapeno

All the yardwork in done-waiting on Tuesdays rain to make it grow again.  The weather was PERFECT today and hovering t-in the 70’s.  Since the weather has been cooler the sunsets are becoming so much more colorful-LOVE IT.

I wanted to try something a little different tonight so this is what I came up with.  For a side dish I made a pasta salad which I will post tomorrow because I am tired and want to crawl in bed-just sayin’.

  • 2 tuna steaks
  • 1 teaspoon salt (I used smoked salt)
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 jalapeno
  • bacon (thin sliced)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.  Place the wrapped tuna into a cast iron grill pan and bake until bacon is cooked through.  I cooked ours about 15-20 minutes.  The fish will cook fast but the fat in the bacon will keep the fish moist.
