Our town hit 108F according to the gauge on our car. I suggested to John that maybe our planned dinner, White Beans and Kale Stew, was probably not the best choice. Since we were visiting Costco we picked up some tuna and a bag of kale salad for an alternative dinner.
I made some nuoc cham to use a salad dressing and a dipping sauce. It is salty and sour and sweet. John seared our thick pieces of tuna for two minutes on each side. Then he encrusted the outside with black and white sesame seeds. It was nice, light fare and perfect for a hot evening.
