First catch is tuna. Because it stands up to bold flavors, start by coating the steaks in crushed spices, then sear them in avocado oil. Not only does the oil unlock the spices’ flavors, it also boosts the monounsaturated (good) fat content, which delivers Omega-3 fatty acids. Besides being a source for good fat, tuna is also high in protein, as well as B vitamins and the mineral selenium, which helps to protect red blood cells.

You’ll know it’s ready to flip once the salmon easily releases from the pan.
Salmon is available year-round, thanks to farming techniques, so you can enjoy it any time you like. But now that it’s in season, wild-caught salmon is plentiful.
