Today’s Menu: Lemon – Pepper Fried Haddock w/ Baked Bay Scallops and Mac and Cheese

 

 

Haddock  and Bay Shrimp 004
A cloudy and dreary day out today, a bit warmer but damp. It looks like it’s going to be a stormy Trick or Treat Night tomorrow also they say. Growing up in the neighborhood, in Hamilton, we always looked forward to Halloween Night and all the Candy! Back then we would fill up 2 huge Trick or Treat Bags easily during the course of the night, as all the houses were close together so it was easy to canvas a couple of neighborhoods. For dinner tonight, Lemon – Pepper Fried Haddock w/ Baked Bay Scallops and Mac and Cheese.

 

 
It was Seafood tonight with some Mac and Cheese thrown in. I had bought a Haddock Fillet at Kroger the day before along with the Bay Scallops. I still buy Seafood from Kroger it’s one item that’s reasonably priced, and very good quality. To prepare the Haddock I started by rinsing the Fillet off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I then sliced the Fillet into smaller pieces. To season I added a couple of shakes of Sea Salt and then rolled the Fillets in Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. I could live on Fish and Seafood!

 

 
Then for my Bay Scallops. Rinsed them off and patted them dry and then I combined the following; ½ cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 Tsp. Onion Powder, 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder, ½ Tsp. Paprika, 1/2 Tsp. Parsley (dried), ¼ Tsp. Cayenne Pepper, ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated, and Dash Sea Salt. Then I melted 2 Tbsp. Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Preheated the oven to 400 degrees F and poured the melted butter into a 2-quart casserole dish. Make sure the scallops and butter are evenly placed in the bottom of the dish. Mix all the remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over the scallops. Bake until the scallops are firm, which will take about 20 minutes, careful not overcook the Scallops. These are nothing but delicious! The seasoning along with the Bread Crumbs gives them excellent flavor and a nice brown crust. I also heated up some Bob Evan’s Macaroni and Cheese. Just microwave and their ready. A mini Seafood Fest tonight for dinner! For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks Cup.
