Nothing beats a quick weeknight meal that you can make quicker than you can get carryout.

This tuna dish is layered with flavor.

The maple syrup and the tangy mustard, topped with smoked paprika is a great combination to top seafood or chicken.

This also is a great healthy choice because it is low in fat and sodium.
