...consisted of pan seared, marinated fresh yellowfin tuna steaks, sea scallops, crab cakes, roasted Brussel sprouts, and my version of Mexican street corn.
Here we go...

The tuna steaks are up first. Made a marinade of 4 TBSP low sodium soy sauce, 2 TBSP local honey, and 2 TBSP toasted sesame oil. Mixed it all together and added 1/2tsp or so of fresh ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp or so of cayenne pepper. I put the tuna in a sealable bag with the marinade for about an hour. The scallops were thawed and dried on paper towels...

Here's the lineup for the corn...

- 1 lb. of fresh corn cut off the cob from my freezer
- 2 TBSP Duke's mayonnaise
- 2 TBSP sour cream
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 TBSP Tajin seasoning
- 1/2 cup of Cotija cheese

Corn is sautéed in a couple of TBSPs of canola oil until tender and starting to get some color...

Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Then stir in about 1/2 cup of Cotija cheese and it's ready to eat...

Dust the scallops with J.O.'s #1 and pan sear each side in EVOO and a little butter on medium high for a minute or so...

Next up is the tuna steaks. A little EVOO in a skillet on medium high until smoking and then they're ready to go in...

About 1 minute or so and flip. One more minute or so and they're rare to medium rare and done...

The crab cakes are store bought and the brand is Dockside from Kroger, nothing special. They cooked in a 400℉ oven for about 20 minutes. The Brussel sprouts were simply tossed in EVOO, course salt and fresh ground black pepper, and were cooked at 450℉ until brown, which was about 30 minutes...

Time to eat...

My intentions were to grill the tuna steaks, but mother nature had other plans. As for the corn, I was planning to cook it in a cast iron skillet on the grill as well, but I can't fool with mother nature. The Tajin has a serious lime kick to it, if you've never used it, but it really has a fantastic taste.

Oh, it's still pouring down rain...

Nice! I love good scallops! Are you from around SD or a boarder town? I was introduced to Tajin on fruit for the first time years ago when I moved to San Diego and it’s been a staple seasoning ever since! I’ve mixed it with brown sugar and fruit, then wrapped tin foil snd thrown on the grill with good results! Thank you for sharing!

Jim, after us and a plate for our son-in-law, wasn't much left, but you're always welcome to come. I'll fix extra next time...:emoji_wink:

jw, I'm not from the west coast. I was born and raised right here in South Carolina and I first read about Tajin when TNJAKE TNJAKE posted a cook he did a couple of years ago. I really like the stuff and use it in any dish that I feel tastes good with a citrus kick. Thank you for your kind words...

Great looking meal. What is this thing called rain?
Brian, we haven't had much rain in the past 2 weeks or so and it was much needed, just not when I want to cook on the grill...:emoji_grinning:. And by the way, it's raining again today...

Jim, I appreciate your kind words...
Fantastic meal and very well documented!
Thank you, Colin. I try to post where it can be easily duplicated by others. Before I started participating in this forum, I "stole" a lot of recipes and techniques and always appreciated the details...

Al, we love our tuna on the rare side, it just gets too dry if it's cook much more than that. Thank you for your comments...
Great job!
