Today’s Menu: Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w/ Baked Potato

 

Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w Baked Potato 010
I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer and stopped at Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom. I wanted to get things done early before the heat and humidity set in for the day. I don’t mind the high temperatures but can’t stand the high humidity. Back home did some cleaning, vacuum and dusting. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwich w/ Baked Potato.

Some good friends of mine called yesterday and said to come over and pick up some fish they had caught at the Florida Gulf. They gave me some beautiful fillets of Grouper and Mahi Mahi. So I couldn’t wait to try one, and went with the Mahi Mahi. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added the Mahi Mahi. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Mahi Mahi fillet! The fresh taste of the Mahi Mahi, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I topped it with some Louisiana Remoulade Sauce and Lettuce.

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, topped it with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
