The tannic acid in strong black tea can tenderize meat in a stew, as well as reduce the cooking time. Just add 1/2 cup strong tea to the stew when you add the other liquid. It will also give your stew a great brown color.
Today’s Menu: Crappie Fillets w/ Parmesan Risotto and Whole Grain Bread
A sad day today, I’m using the last of the Crappie Fillets! It’s been some of the best Crappie I’ve ever had. Rolled the fillets with Italian Style Bread Crumbs and seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Pepper and lightly fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. As sides had Lundberg Parmesan Risotto, sprinkled with Shredded Parm Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread.
Had another batch of the Lake Okeechobee Crappie! Rolled in Whole Grain Flour and Bread Crumb mixture and seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper then fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I had sides of Cut Green Beans &Shelly Beans, Diced New Potatoes and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Sliced Bread.
Had some more of that fantastic tasting Crappie from Lake Okeechobee! Can’t get enough of that fresh Crappie. I rolled the fillets in a Bread Crumb and Whole Wheat Flour mix lightly fried and seasoned with Sea Salt, Black Pepper, and Parsley. As sides had Parmesan Risotto and a slice of Aunt Millie’s Hearth Whole Grain Bread. More about dessert later!
Today’s Menu: Crappie w/ Velveeta/Kraft Shells and Cheese and Hearth Whole Grain Bread
Everyone has their favorite foods mine Bison and Crappie! I know Spring is just around the corner when my Mom’s cousin’s family are returning from their annual winter retreat from Lake Okeechobee. Which also means they bring me a
fresh batch of Lake Okeechobee Crappie or Specks as they call them down in Florida. I could eat these every day and not get tired of them. This year’s catch is a tasty one, as I found out for dinner!
I had Crappie rolled in a Whole Wheat Flour and Bread Crumb mixture and seasoned with Sea Salt, Pepper, McCormick ParmesanSeasoning, and Parsley. Lightly pan fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, just lightly browned. As sides had Velveeta/Kraft 2% Shells and Cheese and a slice of Aunt Millie’s Hearth Whole Grain Bread. Did I tell you I love eating Crappie?
