Chef Says: ”To plate: place the rice & squash mix in a half moon shape on one side of the plate and drizzle with some of the Honey; then set the Tuna next to the rice mixture and drizzle with a little of the juices from the skillet used to cook the Tuna. Garnish the rice with parsley and the Tuna with a Lemon twist.
