Facebook Request – Sashimi Grade Tuna

Last week one of our loyal Facebook fans asked us for a delicious tuna recipe she could try out with her sashimi grade tuna. Obviously there are many wonderful options out there including the one that’s posted on our wall, but we took it a step further. After reaching out to a close friend and master chef we found an incredibly simple and luxurious recipe that we can’t wait to try out ourselves!

Preparing the Shashimi grade tuna

  1. Wash the Sashimi grade tuna with club soda
  2. Season with Himalayan salt and ground fresh pepper
  3. Sauté the tuna with truffle oil for 30 seconds each side
  4. Pop the tuna in the oven on 400 degrees for 10 min

For a spin on traditional mashed potatoes, add a tablespoon of Wasabi powder to the milk before mashing the potatoes. Serve with grilled asparagus alongside the tuna and enjoy!

Politics in the Pantry

Produce Inspection

With the Presidential election behind us we just may begin to see some changes in food regulation laws as a result of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) signed into law by President Barak Obama back in January 2011.

Impacting roughly 80% of consumer purchased foods not including meat and poultry, the FSMA is the most dramatic change to food regulation laws in the United States in more than 70 years. The premise of the FSMA is to emphasize prevention rather than punishment by implementing four sets of rules designed to reduce foodborne illnesses which impact some 50,000 Americans each year and result in an average of 3,000 deaths annually.

The goal of the  four regulations associated with the FSMA is to increase monitoring of imported foods, while taking aggressive measures to prevent produce contamination including but not limited to more frequent and thorough inspections of food packaging facilities.

In the summer of 2012, America experienced four major outbreaks linked to FDA-regulated foods. While the cost of increased regulation through the FSMA is steep, falling in the billions of dollars range, a 2010 Pew Trusts study estimates the total ‘costs’ of foodborne illnesses at $152 billion each year.

At Passanante’s Home Food Service we pride ourselves on the safety and quality of foods we provide to hundreds of families each month. We don’t need the federal government to tell us how important food safety is or to implement laws to protect you — we do it on our own and are conscious of it everyday. Passanante’s has always adhered to the strictest of policies and actively looks for opportunities to improve our methods.

We love being the company you can trust for safe organic produce and hormone-free meat delivery and look forward to continuing to impress each of you!

Happy eating! ❤
