Today’s Menu: Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Tofu Mac & Cheese and Fried Red Potatoes



Well we ended up with about 4″ or more of new snow! And another possible 1″ overnight. But warmer and nicer weather coming next week, hopefully! Ate Breakfast while watching Team U.S.A Men Hockey go up against their arch rival Russia. It went to an overtime shoot-out but the U.S.A. won it 3-2! U.S.A. U.S.A.! Really enjoy the Winter Olympics. For dinner tonight it’s a Seasoned Fried Haddock w/ Tofu Mac & Cheese and Fried Red Potatoes.



Hadock Tofu Mac and Cheese 001
I had Haddock Fillet in the freezer, bought on sale at Kroger a while back. I laid the fillet out in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Then sliced the fillet into smaller pieces. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. I then pan fried them in Canola Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s is a perfect combo, delicious every time!




For one side dish I made some Tofu Mac & Cheese! I used TOFU SHIRATAKI (Yam Noodle with Tofu) MACARONI SHAPE which is only 20 calories and 1 net carb per serving! To prepare it I used 1 serving of Velveeta 2% Cheese, a small handful of fresh shredded Dutch Gouda (for that creamy texture), 2 teaspoons Hungarian Paprika, and Sea Salt and Ground White Pepper (to taste). To start drain and rinse the Tofu thoroughly. Microwave for 1 min., to reduce the authentic aroma. Dry very well and jut use as you would regular cooked noodles. Add the ingredients and stir until well mixed. I then put them in a small sauce pan and heated it on medium, heated until the Cheese was melted and Tofu was heated through. Came out rich and creamy with a nice flavor. I should you use House Tofu Shirataki – Tofu Shirataki more often, no excuse not to except I forget about buying it. Kroger has a small variety of it sometimes but it’s Jungle Jim’s International Market that has it in all varieties and always in stock. Makes a fine side dish and a good alternative to Pasta.



For my other side dish I peeled and sliced up some small to medium-sized Red Potatoes and pan fried them in a Cast Iron Skillet. After thin slicing them I rinsed them off and dried them with a paper towel. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. Then pan fried them in Cat Iron Skillet in Canola Oil, turning them over several times with a spatula until they were starting to brown on both sides. Love Potatoes and love the pan fry method! A delicious dinner for a cold Winter’s Day, and saved a lot on calories and carbs by having Fish and by using Tofu Macaroni. For dessert later a Weight Watchers Vanilla Swirl Ice Cream Cone.
