Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans

Had a light Breakfast of 2 Eckrich Smoked Turkey Sausage Breakfast Links and a Healthy Life While Grain Muffin, with my morning Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did a load of laundry for Mom. Then went to Kroger and picked up a couple of prescriptions for Dad. Came back and got the leaf blower out and cleaned the drive and around the house. Grilled a Ball Park White Turkey Frank for lunch. After lunch a friend of mine called and wanted me to pick her up to go get her car at mechanics. Busy day. For dinner tonight it’s nothing but good! I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Golden Hominy and Cut Green Beans.

As I scanned the freezer last night for something to have for dinner a bag of that Lake Okeechobee Crappie caught Fried Okeechobee Crappie w Golden Hominy Cut Green Beans 001my eye right away! So I grabbed a couple of bags and put them in the fridge to thaw overnight. Okeechobee Crappie, or Specks as they call them in Florida are my favorite, just love the taste of them! 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 Extra Virgin Olive 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.

For a side dish I opened up a can of Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. My favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a good side dish! Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.
