Seared Ahi Tuna and more No-Knead Bread

While out shopping today I came across a package of fresh ahi tuna that screamed at me to take it home. So I did. And tonight we dredged each piece in sesame seeds, pan seared them for 2 minutes per side and ate them. *burp* They were delicious.

Jim was the chief cook tonight, I merely provided the tuna. He sauteed some stir fry noodles with garlic and green onion and put a some on each plate. Then he carefully sliced the seared tuna and placed each fillet on top of the noodles.
Simple and delicious. Even Sophie enjoyed a nibble or two.

Coming up this week I'll be off from work (woo hoo!) so I'll have time to tinker in the kitchen. There'll be more no-knead bread for certain. The last loaf I made yesterday didn't stand a chance.
We ate most of it before it had a chance to cool. This loaf was slightly different. I added some freshly ground rosemary and dried onion and added it to the flour mixture before I added the water. And who knows what I'll do with the next loaf...... Then later this week Jim's parents and brother are driving up for a belated Thanksgiving visit. We'll have a family Thanksgiving dinner then. On the menu, brined turkey breast, wild mushroom risotto, green beans and fresh baked bread. We'll probably also make a pizza or two on one other night as well as going out. So stay tuned.......

After the gluttony of Thanksgiving, all I want is a lovely piece of fresh tuna--thanks for the suggestion, it's going on the grocery list today.

yuuuhummm. I've always wanted to try ahi tuna. :)

And I'm def. going to try out some of the no-knead breads you've been posting. I hate kneading with a passion! :)

I made a loaf of the no knead with 1/3 multigrain flour, it turned out really well. I'm having fun experimenting with it and it always turns out great, (and disappears way too quickly).

Gorgeous tuna. What did you bake the bread in? The recipe calls for an oven proof pot.

I have a dutch oven which is the right size but the lid isn't oven proof. I took another lid from an oven proof pan that's a shade smaller than the dutch oven and crimped foil around the edge to make it cover the entire pot. I may try to use a flat baking sheet as a lid next time.
