Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Tilapia w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain BreadCast Iron Skillet Blackened Tilapia 008

 

 
After a night and morning of heavy rains, the sun finally came out late afternoon. It’s no wonder the crops are doing so well, this is the first Summer in quite sometime we’ve had enough rain. Usually by now our lawns are brown and crops are struggling but this year everything is green! For dinner I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Blackened Tilapia w/ Scalloped Potato Casserole, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

Nothing better to cook in than a well seasoned Cast Iron Skillet. My Mom has three of them and all are older than me. i had the Tilapia frozen so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned them with a bit of Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Then i melted a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the two fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered them, both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Canola Oil to my Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillets for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. As usual anything that you use Zatarain’s on it’s going to be good and this was no exception! I love the smokey and heated flavor the seasoning provides. The fillet just melted in my mouth. I could live on Fish and Seafood alone.

To go with my Blackened Tilapia I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. Another easy to prepare and delicious dish. A breeze to make just mix the ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes and you have some delicious Scalloped Potatoes. Plus their only 160 calories and 20 carbs. I also heated up a bag og of Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas and a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
