    JanuaryBride's Note:

    A healthy recipe from the Eat Right section of Shape Magazine Summer 2009. After making this recipe, I wanted to add a few notes. I marinated my tuna for about 12 hours and the only flavor that really stood out was the rosemary. . .perhaps you might want to add some additional lemon juice and lemon zest to the marinade. I then let the reserved marinade sit for 24 hours in the fridge to infuse the flavors which was nice; I strained mine as I don't care for "herby" stuff and mixed it with the warm asparagus (then skipped the salad part). A nice meal.
