Today’s Menu: Fried Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Smashed Potatoes and Green Beans



Fried Gulf Coast Grouper 006

Had to fast overnight for my 4 month checkup at the Family Doctor; checking Sugar, Cholesterol, and such. Glad it’s over, I don’t like going to a doctor and especially a Family Doctor. After that I had to take Dad for a Doctor appointment later in the morning. Back home did the usual, cleaned up the house and cleaned up around the house a bit. Have one of my favorites for dinner tonight, fresh Florida Gulf Coast Grouper! Tonight I prepared a Fried Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Smashed Potatoes and Green Beans.



Fried Gulf Coast Grouper 001

A good friend of mine gave me a call early last evening and said he just came in from Florida and he was coming by to drop off some Gulf Coast Grouper off to me! And this was fresh caught Grouper, never frozen. He came home Monday and it was caught on early Sunday evening off the Gulf Coast of Florida. They filleted what they had and put them on ice, then straight to my fridge! Now that’s fresh! A big “thank you” to Jim for the Grouper! Wow I’ve got some beautiful fillets of Grouper. I coated the fillets in seasoned flour that I seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. I fried the fillets in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat until they were a golden brown, flipping them over one time. What fantastic tasting fillets! So fresh and meaty, love these Groupers. I’ll have leftover Grouper for lunch tomorrow.

For sides I had Smashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. To make the Smashed Potatoes I used Petite Gourmet Potatoes. I cut each Potato in half. Then after putting them in a bowl I added a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Dried Dill, and Parsley and mixed until all were coated. I then boiled them for 20 minutes. Then put them in a serving bowl and with a fork smashed them up. Added I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and continued to smash and mix. The Green Beans were Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
