Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Shells and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Golden Puffs Cereal along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Growing up I loved Sugar Crisps Cereal. Well while at Meijer yesterday I came across a bag of Malt O Meel Golden Puffs, only 100 calories per serving. These taste just like the old Super Sugar Crisps! After Breakfast I grabbed a broom and the leaf blower and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. After that I watered all the new plants outside. Then got some empty plant pots out of the shed and filled them with potting soil and planted Wild Flower Seeds in them. Later after Lunch I headed over to see Dad for a while. Outside it’s a bit cooler out. In the 80’s the past couple of days with lots of sunshine and today cloudy and 65 degrees. For my dinner tonight I prepared Fried Ocean Perch w/ Shells and Cheese.

 


I picked up the Ocean Perch at Kroger  earlier today. Really love the Kroger Seafood Department. Good selection. To prepare them I preheated a medium size skillet, that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added Extra Light Olive Oil, on medium heat. Rinsed the Perch with cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Lightly seasoned them with the McCormick Sea Salt. I then put them in a Hefty Zip Lock Bag and added Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri, shaking the bag then until the Perch Fillets were coated. Added the Fillets to the heated skillet and fried them for 6 minutes. 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!

 

 

 

Then for a side I prepared a box of Annie’s Shells and Real Aged Cheddar. I’ve used Annie’s products in the past and always enjoyed them. The reason I choose Annie’s is on Friday’s Kroger runs an online special of a free product. You just log in to the Kroger site and click on it and it goes on your Kroger Card, very good deal every Friday!

 

 

To prepare it is preparation like most boxed Mac and Cheese. Boil 6 cups of water in a medium sauce pan. Stir in the Pasta and cook 8-10 minutes.When done drain the Pasta. Next add 3 tbsp of low fat Milk to a warm sauce pan. Sprinkle the Cheese packet over the Milk and stir to combine. Finally add the Pasta back to that saucepan and stir until well mixed. And done! Excellent Mac and Cheese! Tender and nice flavor, goes great with the Perch! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

Ocean Perch
Ocean perch is mild tasting yet a bit sweet, with a moderately firm texture. The meat is lean, moist and flaky. Large ocean perch develop a coarse texture. Deep-skinned ocean perch with the fat line removed has the most delicate flavor. The flesh is white, though not as light as cod, and it turns opaque white when cooked.Whole fish may have bulging eyes and distended air bladders, which is a result of being brought up from great depths, not an indication of poor quality.

Annie’s Shells and Real Aged Cheddar
Annie’s Cheddar Mac (as we call it!) is our answer to all those chemically orange-colored cheeses out there. We’ve taken our original Shells & White Cheddar and added a little color to it, naturally! Our totally natural cheese is colored with a plant extract called annatto. Annatto has been used in tropical American cultures for generations to color foods such as butter, cheese and mustard. The annatto tree grows 20 to 30 feet in height and when its seeds are stirred in water, they produce orange annatto dye, also called achiote, to color foods. Annie’s Cheddar Macaroni and cheese is a great alternative for kids who need to have that “orange” cheese on their macaroni.
