Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

 

Crappie and Hash Browns 008

 

 

Went out this morning around 6:50 this morning to get the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out! The wind was howling, with snow flurries, and the wind chill made it feel like the mid 20’s. The high is only going up to around 40 but with the wind chill will having it feel like the 30’s. And Winter begins! Did some laundry and settled in for a day of College Football. For dinner tonight Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
I love my Fish, all Fish, but my favorite eating Fish has to be Crappie, Lake Okeechobee Crappie! But my stock of the Crappie has now ran out. Very sad when the year’s supply is gone. So I laid my last 2 bags of the Crappie out of the freezer and in to 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. All out of Crappie until next year!

To go with the Crappie I prepared some Hash Browns, Potatoes are perfect with Fish. 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 heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Beans go well with any meal as far as I’m concerned. Green Beans was my favorite Vegetable growing up even. One fantastic Crappie Meal tonight, but my last for a while. For dessert later a SO Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Mini Ice cream Sandwich, one of my new dessert favorites. Made with Coconut Milk and only 80 calories and 12 net carbs per serving (1 Mini Sandwich).
