Bumble Bee SuperFresh Seared Ahi Tuna

Wait a minute. If it’s frozen and seared, do I let it thaw before consuming or heat it up somehow. And, if I have to heat it up somehow, wouldn’t it turn the seared ahi into cooked ahi ? I may not know how to prepare it, but I do know it was a 2015 Seafood Excellence Award finalist. (Spotted by Marvo at Safeway.)

  1. Regarding the chili cheese dogs, which look awesome btw, that food technology you mentioned was present back in the 80s. It was a product called Frank ‘N Stuff. Hormel made it I think. I loved eating these in junior high but they were discontinued because people were burning themselves on the hot chili that oozed out from the hot dogs. Ah they were so good though!

    1. The Frank N’ Stuff dogs had a center in them that the filling was in. It oozed out once you bit into it. These dogs look like their is chili and cheese throughout the dog which wouldn’t have that problem. The Chili Cheese Corndogs do that, it’s throughout and not a pocket of filling.

  2. Well I’m hopeful that if they did try that kind again, they would put a clear warning on the package to protect themselves. But I’m guessing these are like regular cheese dogs with chili seasoning added instead of actual chili. Hope to get to try them soon

  3. Frank ‘N Stuffs were fabulous. You had to know your way around the dog to avoid getting burned, though. Microwave until you have a leaker, then have a couple minutes of patience before latching on with your mouth.
