Today’s Menu: Blackened Red Snapper w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Sliced Carrots


Blackened Red Snapper 008

Another cloudy day with light rain. Caught up on laundry in the morning and tackled the shed again. Still a lot of stuff to go through and straighten up or pitch it. For dinner tonight its Blackened Red Snapper w/ Whole Grain Brown Rice and Sliced Carrots.






Blackened Red Snapper 001
While at jungle Jim’s Market yesterday I picked up a Red Snapper Fillet that they had on sale. So today it’s Red Snapper for dinner. I started by rinsing the fillet off in cold water and patting dry and cut it in half. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and then rubbed the fillets with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning and Sea Salt. Then I got out the Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated I added my Snapper. Cooked it about 3 1/2 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! The taste of the Red Snapper with the added Butter and the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning makes it one delicious Fish Dish!





I prepared a couple of sides to go with the Snapper. One side I made was Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Brown Rice. I used the individual microwave Uncle Ben’s. Comes in a microwavable container, just heat for 45 seconds and serve. Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Sliced Carrots along with a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread.

This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.
