Cardamom is one of my favorite spices. I love to pair it with cinnamon when I bake. Some call it the “Queen of Spices”.
It is a bit pricier than most spices. But, definitely worth it! It doesn’t have a long shelf life. So, be sure to buy in small quantities.
I wanted to try to do a savory dish with this spice. This week, when I placed my online grocery order, I saw that tuna medallions were on sale. Below is a recipe that pairs the tuna medallions with cardamom with cumin and coriander and orange juice.
The result was right on! The aroma was just amazing. You have to try this one…
P.S. Yes, you read that right…online grocery shopping. I am a huge fan of online grocery shopping. I place my order, schedule my pickup, pull up and they bring it out. Great timesaver!
Tuna Medallions Marinated
with Orange Juice, Cardamom & Cumin
1/2 cup Orange Juice (freshly squeezed preferred)
1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 teaspoons ground Cardamom
1 teaspoon ground Cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground Coriander
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
- In a small bowl (or measuring cup), whisk together the orange juice, olive oil, cardamom, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
- Place the tuna medallions in a casserole dish. Cover with the marinade. Toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes. Be sure to flip the tuna every 10 minutes.
- Heat your grill pan. When hot, add your tuna medallions. Grill to your preference for “done-ness”. (We like it medium-well.)
