Did you see that? Yes, I am doing a giveaway!  Healthy Solutions Spice Blends contacted me and asked if I would like to try out some of their tasty spice blends.  Of course!  They have a fantastic array of spice blends that make it easy to "create gourmet meals in minutes".  These little packets of awesomeness take the guesswork out of choosing how to season your meals.  Check out the different varieties:

Herb Crusted Tilapia
Shrimp Scampi
Cajun Seafood
Encrusted Haddock
Lemon Pepper
Sesame Ginger Tuna
Grilled Swordfish
Salmon with Dill
Bold Beef Rub
Authentic Chili/Tacos
Hearty Beef Stew
Italian Meatballs
Perfect Steak
Savory Meatloaf
Ultimate Burger
Pork & Poultry

They have a spice blend perfect for whatever kind of protein you are cooking up!  And the best thing about these spice blends?  Most of them contain no salt and no sugar.  They are a great choice for anybody trying to eat healthier without sacrificing flavor.  I decided to try out the Sesame Ginger Tuna variety.  I recently discovered very affordable tuna steaks at Sam's and have been stocking up!  They are really good and this spice blend was just perfect for them.  Here's how I made them.

Sesame Ginger Grilled Ahi Tuna Steaks

1 1/2 lbs. Ahi tuna steaks, thawed if frozen
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp Healthy Solutions Sesame Ginger Tuna Spice Blend

Place tuna steaks in a large resealable bag.  Whisk together soy sauce, honey, and spice blend in a small bowl.  Pour marinade into bag, seal, and place in fridge, turning occasionally, for 2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium heat.  Remove tuna from bag and place on the grill.  Pour some of the remaining marinade on top of the tuna steaks.  Discard bag.  Grill tuna for about 5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned on the outside but still pink in the middle.  Remove from grill and serve.

Makes 4 servings.

My whole family loved this tuna.  The flavors were just perfect.  I served it with some peanut noodles and roasted broccoli and carrots.  It was an awesome meal.

Now, about the giveaway!  I have three more packets of these spice blends and I would love to share them with my lovely readers.  Unfortunately, I don't have another Sesame Ginger Tuna, but since we are in the middle of grilling season, I have three different blends that will take your grilled beef dishes to a whole new level.  Up for grabs are:

Perfect Steak: The perfect blend of rosemary, garlic & onion to beef up the flavor of your select cut.
Ultimate Burger: Not your average burger blend. This summer grilling favorite turns your boring hamburger patties into Ultimate Burgers bursting with a unique blend of beefy flavors.
Bold Beef Rub: A robust roundup of herbs and spices that even the finickiest cowhands at your table will enjoy. This rough riding dry rub enhances any cut of beef with rich juicy flavors of the West.

If you would like a chance to win one of these little packets of heaven, do the following three things:

1. Like Healthy Solutions Spice Blends on Facebook
2. Follow Healthy Solutions Spiced Blends on Twitter
3. Leave a comment here telling me which of the three blends above you would most like to try and why.  Also include your Facebook and Twitter names for verification of the first two requirements.

This giveaway will close on Sunday, July 20th at 11:59 pm.  I will pick three winners at random and will contact you to get your shipping address.  Please include your email address when commenting; you do not have to include it in your comment, just enter it into the form. That way I will have it but it will not be seen publicly.  If a winner does not give their email address, or he/she does not respond in a timely manner to my email asking for his/her address, another winner will be chosen.

I was given free samples of Healthy Solutions Spice Blends in exchange for an honest review of their product.  I was not compensated in any other way and the shipping costs for the giveaway are coming from my own pocket.  All opinions expressed in this post are completely my own.

Good luck!
