Greek Tuna Melt

Figs & Feta’s Greek Tuna Melt is tangy, lemony and rich with the fresh and savory flavors of the Mediterranean. Plus! A giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Genova.Genova provided me with free Genova products for the purpose of this post, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine.

Greek-Tuna-Melt-|figsandfeta.comI am always excited to try products new to me and even more excited to accept the challenge of working a product into a Greek or Mediterranean dish (see: Greekify!) So when I received a gorgeous and generous gift basket from Genova Seafood I could not wait to get started in the test kitchen. After opening a can of Genova tuna I knew immediately that the savory tuna and olive oil it was packed in would add an amazing Mediterranean touch to a Greek Tuna Melt.

Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Basil-Spinach Lemon Pesto

Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Basil-Spinach Lemon Pesto, Spiralized Vegetables, Baked Breaded Shrimp and Roasted Tomatoes
According to the calendar Spring has officially arrived! (A big shout-out to my east coast friends and family! You did it! You survived!)

So here we go: a whole new crop of fresh fruits and vegetables to work with in the kitchen. Easter is just around the corner and in the Greek home that is a whole feast in and among itself… more on that in the coming weeks. With the weather warming and the plants blooming it’s time for me to set some seasonal goals:

  1. Eat right;
  2. Log some more miles on my running shoes because swimsuit season is knocking on the door;
  3. Reward myself with a few new spring-worthy outfits! (1 and 2 need to seriously happen before 3 is even considered!)

Shrimp and Vegetable Stuffed Tricolor Peppers

Peppers-6I’ve been privileged to eat some of the most delicious stuffed tomatoes and peppers during my travels through Greece. One of my most memorable meals was Yemista (YEM-e-staa), at a friend’s grandmother’s house in the village of Itea where at the age of 18, my closest friends and I enjoyed spending a summer. Yiayia Amelia made enough to feed a Spartan army although there were only five of us at the lunch table. How did we end up with just 3 stuffed peppers and 1 stuffed tomato left at the end of our lunch? We ate more than our share, that’s how. It’s hard to pass up on extreme deliciousness.
