Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn



Crappie Hash Browns Corn 006
For Breakfast I warmed up a piece of the leftover Cubed Pork Steak and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with some Sweet and Hot Stone Ground Mustard. Along with my morning cup of fresh brewed Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was bit warmer out today, high of 81 degrees, but still sunny and low humidity. Went and had my car washed and the inside cleaned and come back home and had the cart out most of the day. For dinner tonight it’s Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.


I love Walleye and all other Fish but my favorite eating Fish has to be Crappie, Okeechobee Crappie! But my stock of the Crappie is running low, maybe only a bag or two left. Very sad when this year’s supply is gone. So I laid 3 of bags of the Crappie out in the fridge overnight to thaw. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side.As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie. especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie.

To go with the Crappie I prepared some Hash Browns, Potatoes are perfect with Fish, so Hash Browns it is! I always use Simply potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. Then I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. A great replacement, and sometimes better, for fresh Corn on the Cob. As good as last night’s dinner was, this one was even better! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
