Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Harvest Vegetables and Fried Toast
For Breakfast I’m having a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, topped with Smucker’s Sugar-free Blackberry Jam, and as every morning, a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast did a few chores around the house and finished up a load of laundry for Mom. Then after Lunch I headed out to spend the afternoon with Dad. He’s getting a bit restless, wanting to come home. But he just can’t until he builds his strength up more. I feel bad we can’t let him come home yet but it’s for his own safety. It got up to 58 degrees today with a shower. Our temperatures keep on the roller coaster, up and down teens to 60’s. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Harvest Vegetables and Fried Toast
I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Florida! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish and Love this Grouper!
Then for a side I prepared a package of Pict’sweet Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Red Potatoes and Herb and Garlic Seasoning. Another item that’s easy to prepare and a delicious side dish. Just microwave them in their steamable bag they come in on high for 5 minutes an d you have some steaming hot delicious vegetables. Pict’sweet has several different vegetable products but this is my favorite. It contains sugar snap peas, carrots and robust roasted red potatoes in a garlic seasoning.
Next I made some Fried Toast. All I’ll need is I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Sliced Sour Dough Bread. Heat a frying pan to a medium heat and add some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter to the pan. Next; Heat the butter, add the sliced bread to the pan, and cook for a few seconds or until golden brown, and done! Makes a nice twist on Toast and a perfect side to any dish! For Dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn and and an Ice Cold Diet Peach Snapple.
Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.
