Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Boiled Baby Carrots

 

 

 

Walleye Grain Medley 001

Got up early made a light Breakfast and took off for Walmart. Finished off some Christmas shopping and solved my vacuum cleaner problems! In a Wheel Chair little things you need to do can become a challenge, like vacuuming the floor. The cord is a pain when your moving and cleaning. So I finally invested in a Hoover Stand Up Cordless Vacuum. Just charge the battery pack and go! It only weighs about 10 lbs., very mobile, and like I said it’s cordless. I’m letting it charge now and I’ll give it a try tomorrow, Merry Christmas to me! Mom and Dad both still improving, slowly but improving! For dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Walleye w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Boiled Baby Carrots.

 

 

 

 

I had some Walleye that I had purchased from Kroger a couple of weeks ago in the freezer. I laid one fillet in the fridge to thaw overnight. Walleye is such a flavorful and meaty Fish so it doesn’t need much breading, just enough to give it a nice crust. I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then dusted them with a light coat of Flour. I panned fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side, to a nice golden brown. Walleye has that wild fresh taste about it, just a naturally delicious Fish.

For one side I prepared a bag of the Minute Whole-Grain Medley. I used this for the first time a while back and it instantly became one of my favorites. It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Easy to prepare and makes one excellent side dish. Also this time I added some Sliced Mushrooms too it that just added a perfect addition to the dish. I also had of side of boiled Baby Carrots and a baked Sour Dough Mini Boule. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.
