Grilled Mediterranean Branzino

This is a flavorful Mediterranean dish that adds the healthy twist you’re looking for this holiday. Serve with baby carrots, spinach, roasted potato, and sauce. Yum.


Truffle Crusted Tuna

When choosing a fish to serve for dinner, Tuna is a great option. A Thick crust of truffles creates a unique texture for the tuna. Truffles create a succulent flavor, then pair the tuna with seared rare, grilled eggplant, wilted spinach, sweet baby peppers, and olives. This is a meal to shake your dishes up and is surprisingly healthy compared to alternatives.
