Today’s Menu: Fried Ocean Perch w/ Sharp White Cheddar Mac and Cheese




To start my Friday morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and as always my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny out today and 80 degrees. Went up and had my car washed, really needed it! Drove on over to Walmart, I wanted to check out the Lawn and Garden Department for a few things. Back home got the cart out for a while and drove around the neighborhood and down by the lake. Relaxing day! For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Ocean Perch w/ Sharp White Cheddar Mac and Cheese.



I picked up the Ocean Perch at Kroger the day before. Really love the Kroger Seafood Department. Good selection. I first rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. 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 3 minutes per side. They came out Golden Brown! Delicious and fresh tasting, I love all Fish and Seafood!


For a side dish it was leftover Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese Dinner – Sharp White Cheddar. I just reheated the Mac and Cheese leftover from Dinner last night. I put it into a bowl, covered the bowl with a paper towel, and microwaved it for 1 minute and 10 seconds. Heated up great and still delicious. Really enjoyed the Cracker Barrel Mac and Cheese. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.




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.

Top 50 Grilling Recipes

Our best recipes for grilled salmon, grilled chicken, grilled pizza and more.



Thai Grilled Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce
In this recipe for gai yang, or Thai grilled chicken, the chicken marinade is enriched with a little coconut milk, which keeps the meat moist during grilling. Prepare the sweet-and-spicy dipping sauce the day you want to use it, because it loses freshness quickly. If you prefer to use chicken breasts instead of thighs and drumsticks, use 3 bone-in breast halves and cut each in half crosswise for 6 servings total…….

Apricot-Chile Glazed Salmon
This healthy apricot-chile glazed salmon recipe marries fruit and chiles to make this easy grilled salmon mouthwateringly special. Use jam rather than preserves for a smoother, prettier glaze. Look for New Mexico chili powder in well-stocked supermarkets or online at Amazon.com, or substitute your favorite red chili powder…..

Pork Chops with Peach Barbecue Sauce
The tangy peach barbecue sauce that glazes these pork chops is incredible on grilled chicken or salmon as well. Bone-in pork chops (as opposed to boneless) are less likely to dry out. Just make sure to trim away as much fat as possible for healthier results…….
