Today’s Menu: Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Potato Pancakes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Fried Yellow Lake Perch Pot Pancakes 006
Lot of rain early and then a cold and windy day, only a high of about 41 today. Ran some errands and filled the car up with gas before it went back up. I had some Yellow Lake Perch in the freezer, had purchased it from Meijer a couple of weeks ago. Laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. For dinner tonight, Fried Yellow Lake Perch w/ Potato Pancakes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

I like using Lake Perch, fries up a beautiful golden brown and like most fresh water fish has a fantastic taste. After thawing I rinsed the fillets in water and patted dry. I then seasoned them with Sea Salt and rolled the fillets in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. Pan fried them in Canola Oil, 3 minutes per side. They came out with a golden brown crust and delicious! My Mom says I get my love of Fish from my Great Grandfather. Mom said they always knew he was coming to visit because my Grandmother would always fry up a big batch of Fish and a cast iron skillet of Cornbread, and doesn’t get any better than that!

For a side dish I made some Potato Pancakes. I used Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). I also heated up a single serving can of Kroger Brand Sliced Carrots. For dessert tonight a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
