Buttered Tuna with Wasabi-Garlic Sauce

Happy new year everyone.  May 2012 be a good year to us all.  Well I’m not going to make a list of my new year’s resolution here but I do have a few of course.  You may find this too cliché and I might not be able to fulfill all of them, but I still came up with a  number of to Dos and no to Dos.  I have a few wishes too, that need divine intervention for them to come true.  I have already talked to the Almighty One Above about them.  I’m not going to say anything about them.  It’s between me and HIM.

Let’s count our blessings for the past year despite all the challenges, tragedies, problems that happened in 2011.   And let's hope for the best this year. May this year be better for all of us- better health, better finances, better and happier relationships, better resolve, better and greater adventure, and more love.

To start our new year blog, we are posting some healthy recipes we’ve done within the Christmas and New Year holidays including sinfully delicious recipes.  Let’s start with this heart healthy, low calorie, High protein fish dish that is so easy to prepare and cook.
