yes love the obx as well, did he have a good fishing trip?
Oh, they had a great time and already want to go do it again. Well, aside from the initial sea-sickness, that is. ;) My friend and I were joking that now they know what morning sickness feels like. :D They only caught 4 tuna, for a total of 57 pounds. A shark ate another one right off the line and all they got was the head. :eek: We're looking forward to cooking them up on the grill here as soon as we can get all of the intrepid fishermen and their families together. LOL.

@ninnymary , have you tried Pic 'n' Pic hybrid yellow summer quash? Those have been the most productive and disease resistant that I've grown. It could be your climate or soil pH/calcium absorption causing the blossom end rot.

@journey11 , could you let me know how you cook the tuna? A friend of ours brought us a hunk from a fishing trip (would that be a fillet? a steak?). Everything I look at online says to sear the outside and eat it with the interior basically raw. I don't think I can do that . (I know, what a wimp ) and dh isn't wild about fish to begin with so I know he doesn't want it pink and practically squirming lol..

I don't get how people can eat raw fish--sushi--I guess they put something on it, but to me it would be like chewing up a goldfish. Thistle, maybe you can slice it about an inch thick and pan sear it. That should cook the inside enough.
I found a really good rub recipe for salmon on the package of the frozen pink salmon that Wally world sells. It is pretty spicy, but you can put more or less on. I bet it would be good on the tuna. If anyone wants it I can post it.

It does come out like a steak, and like you say, most people will cook theirs "rare". The longer you cook it, the more likely you will dry it out. We marinate ours first. Italian dressing is good if you're in a hurry, or any other sweet marinade like teriyaki, or anything with brown sugar and soy sauce would be good. If you want to cook it through, you'll need to divide them in half to make them thinner so they'll cook quickly. Tuna steaks are not fishy tasting like canned tuna either. (If that's even really tuna in there, who knows!)

what time is dinner? love fresh tuna........

Yes, Journey I've tried that one. I thought it would be a winner because of the name.
