Today’s Menu: Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/ Mini Ear of Sweet Corn and Baked Potato

 

 

 

For Breakfast on this Saturday morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, and finally a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. Also toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I had seen a similar Hash Brown dish like this on Food Network’s Dinners, Drive – In’s, and Dives. It looked delicious and I gave it a try, and it is delicious!

 

 

After I had Breakfast and did the dishes I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. It’s not quite as hot out, 81 degrees but still a tad muggy. We had one strong storm move through our area late yesterday. Some areas are still without power and other areas are flooded. So after Breakfast I had some cleaning up to do outside, a lot leaves, limbs, and garbage. For Dinner tonight it’s Red Snapper! I prepared a Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/ Mini Ear of Sweet Corn and Baked Potato.

 

 

I purchased a beautiful Red Snapper Fillet while at Kroger the day before. I’ll be preparing it by a new recipe I found on the Taste of Home website, Herb-Crusted Red Snapper. I’ll need the following; 1 tablespoon Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 teaspoon Dried Basil, 1 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Fennel Seeds, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano, 1/4 teaspoon Pepper, 1/4 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, 1 Red Snapper fillets, and 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil. I only had 1 fillet of the Red Snapper, the original recipe and ingredient amounts are for 2 fillets. I only used 1/2 of amount of the above ingredients.

 

To prepare it was very easy. To start; In a food processor, combine the first nine ingredients; cover and process until Fennel is finely ground. Transfer to a shallow bowl; dip fillets in herb mixture, coating both sides. In a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, cook fillets in oil for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. So easy and quick to prepare this. The crust was excellent and provided great flavor while the Snapper remained moist.

 

 

 

For the Corn I used my favorite, Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. You can not beat this for frozen or not frozen Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen, so it rare it goes bad, prepared in 10 minutes, and some of the Sweetest Corn on the cob you’ll find! Topped it with some Morton’s Lite Salt and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

I also had a Baked Russet Potato. Topped this with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and some I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Any Potato Dish works for me! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper.
