Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sauteed Asparagus




Beautiful sunny day out, now if it was just a bit warmer! Well it wont be too much longer, hopefully! For dinner tonight I prepared FriedOcean Perch Risotto 001 Ocean Perch w/ Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sauteed Asparagus. I picked up the Ocean Perch the day before at Meijer in their Seafood Department.



I love Ocean Perch as I do most Fish, and Meijer always has some of the best here locally. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted them dry with a paper towels and seasoned them Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Then rolled them in Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs. I used a medium size skillet and pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 – 3 1/2 minutes per side to a beautiful Golden Brown! The taste spot on, did I say I Love Fish!


For side dishes to go with the Perch I prepared Creamy Parmesan Risotto and Sauteed Asparagus. I used Lundberg Creamy Parmesan Risotto. To me one of the best quick – fix boxed Risotto. I left the product description and cooking instructions at the end of the post. To prepare the Asparagus, using a skillet, saute over medium high heat. Heat 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil and add 1-2 finely chopped garlic cloves (depends on how much garlic you like) add the trimmed Asparagus. Sprinkle with Sea Salt and Pepper. I cooked the stalks about 6 minutes. When finished I sprinkled them with Shredded Parmesan Cheese. The Risotto and Asparagus are great pairings with Fish. For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

I think I enjoy the cooking more than eating, there is nothing better than to watch the smile grow after someone’s first bite. Note from Steve: I am a flow of thought writer and apologize up front if I lose you. My family is used to it.
