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

 

Fried Okeechobee Crappie w Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and 002

It’s been a rainy, windy, cool day here in West Chester, almost feels like an early Winter’s day instead of Fall! Not much going on outside in this weather. Went to see dad in rehab for a while, he’s getting a lot stronger and wanting to come home. He should be released by next Friday they told us. Back at home did some light cleaning and then hit my easy chair with the remote for an afternoon of College Football. For dinner tonight it’s my favorite fish, Crappie. I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread.

It’s been too long between Crappie Dinners! So I got in the freezer and grabbed a couple of bags of Okeechobee Crappie, or Specks as they call them in Florida, and let them thaw overnight in the fridge. 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.

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.

 

 

 

I also baked a small skillet of Martha White Cornbread. Cornbread is something I think I could eat every meal. I like Cornbreada nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
