From the Proprietor
We recently returned from the Boston Seafood Show, where we met with purveyors - both current and new - and attended seminars on topics ranging from sustainable seafood to salmon acquaculture. I invite you to browse the event photos on our Flickr page. Also, check out our latest blog post about the panel we attended entited, "Rebuilding Consumer Confidence in Gulf Seafood." On another note, I am proud to say that Quality Seafood Market will be co-hosting a fundraiser for The Arts and Fitness Project for Young Children on April 13th. All of our customers are welcome to attend and enjoy appetizers, wine & beer, and live music. For event details, please click here or visit the Facebook event page. Thank you for your continued customer loyalty...Have a great week!

Recipe of the week
Sesame Seared Tuna with Vegetable Slaw


Vegetable Slaw:
2 carrots, peeled
2 parsnips, peeled
2 each green and red bell peppers, cored and seeded
1 small sweet onion
1 jalapeño pepper, cored (and seeded if less heat is desired)
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Vanilla Dressing:
3 tbsp sugar
Seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
Sea salt and white pepper

Sesame Seared Tuna:
1/4 cup white sesame seeds
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
1 tbsp wasabi powder (found at Asian grocery stores)
Vegetable-oil cooking spray

For slaw and dressing:
Attach grating blade to food processor. Julienne each vegetable and set aside. In another bowl, mix all dressing ingredients and add vegetables. Add cilantro and combine gently. Let rest for at least 30 minutes.

For tuna:
Place a large nonstick pan over high heat until hot. Combine sesame seeds and wasabi in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray; drizzle oil in pan. Lightly salt tuna; dredge in sesame-wasabi mixture. Reduce heat to medium and place tuna in pan. Sear until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Flip; cook 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes. Divide slaw among 4 plates and top with tuna.
