Every week during this season of American Idol I’ll be cranking out themed recipes for Yahoo! Music blogstress Lyndsey Parker and her Reality Rocks blog. Tonight the Idol crew is heading to Hollywood so I wanted to make something fresh, healthy and super quick.
Grocery store confession: I had a customer meeting early in the evening that ran pretty late so I was racing to the store to pick up tonight’s ingredients. Well…I should have gone with my gut when I saw the only sushi grade tuna available was frozen. Yep FROZEN. Let me just say, do yourself a favor and splurge for the real deal…you’re taste buds won’t reject you! 🙂
