Today’s Menu: Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Pesto Parmesan Potato Stackers, Fresh Green Beans, and Hush PuppiesHaddock Stacked Parm Potatoes 004

 

 

 

What a day outside today! It feels more like a Spring day out than a late July Day. It’s about 75 with a light cool breeze, a perfect day! Broke out the four-wheel cart and the fishing pole and I was set for one relaxing day. Didn’t catch a lot but was good to see some neighbors out and it was nice peaceful afternoon. For dinner I tried a couple of new ones along with a couple of my favorites. i prepared a Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Pesto Parmesan Potato Stackers, Fresh Green Beans, and Hush Puppies.

 

 

I had laid out a fillet of Haddock out of the freezer to thaw overnight. When thawed and ready to prepare I rinsed the fillet off and patted dry and then slightly seasoned it with Sea Salt. I then cut the fillet into smaller pieces and put them into a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook in the bag until the pieces were well covered. I pan fried the pieces in Canola Oil about 3 – 4 minutes per side. I love using the Zatarain’s Mixes. Fantastic flavor and a great crust.

 

 

For side dishes I prepared this one for the first time, Pesto Parmesan Potato Stackers. I found this recipe from one of my email Haddock Stacked Parm Potatoes 002updates from the Potato Goodness web site. It looked and sounded delicious and couldn’t wait to give it a try. Easy to prepare using just 5 ingredients; 6–8 Yukon Gold potatoes (about 2 inches in diameter), 1/2 cup shredded parmesan, 3 tablespoons pesto, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. To prepare I just preheated the oven to 400°F and sprayed muffin tin with nonstick Pam Cooking Spray. It said to peel the potatoes, which was optional I elected not to peel them, and thinly slice them by hand, with a mandolin or food processor fitted with slicer blade, discarding rounded ends. Place in mixing bowl, add the shredded parmesan and pesto, and mix well with a spoon, separating potato slices so that they are evenly coated with the mixture. Add sea salt and pepper to taste. Stack slices beginning with smaller potato pieces at the bottom in the prepared muffin tin until they reach the top of the muffin tin. Scrape bowl to remove all remaining cheese mixture and spoon over potatoes. Bake for 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a sharp knife. Makes 12 side dishes or appetizers. I used it as a side dish and they came out delicious! Hot, creamy, and very flavorful. Another keeper recipe!

 

 

I also warmed up some leftover Green Beans my Mom had prepared yesterday for their dinner. Love Green Beans, especially fresh ones! I also had picked up a package of Martha White Hush Puppy Mix w/ Onion Flavor. It’s the first time I tried these also and they turned out good but I need some practice on making these. I should have used my Fry Daddy instead of a pan, they would have come out rounder. What better to go with Fish than Hush Puppies! Very easy to prepare, just added Milk to the Mix and fried until golden brown. It made some very good Hush Puppies. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Martha White Hush Puppy Mix w/ Onion Flavor

No one knows exactly how hush puppies got their name, but the prevailing wisdom suggests that fisherman threw bits of the batter from frying fish to the dogs barking around the campfire with the admonition to “hush puppies”. Others believe Confederate soldiers were trying to silence their dogs to avoid detection by Yankee scouts. Whatever the origin of this delectable corn meal creation, it goes without saying that you don’t really have a fish fry without hush puppies.

Made with simple cornbread batter, hush puppies are traditionally seasoned with onion and dropped by spoonfuls into the hot oil where the fish were fried. But hush puppies are not limited to accompanying fish, nor are they always little round balls. In some parts of the South hush puppies are served with barbecue or as an appetizer, and sometimes they are crescent or finger-shaped.
