Today’s Menu: Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/ Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole and Cut Green Beans





For Breakfast on 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. I also had a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast and did the dishes I then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. She’s feeling a little better this morning. Her throat isn’t sore and she’s not as congested. So far so good for me, still no signs of me catching it. Our next door neighbors both have it also. Gave the Kitchen a good cleaning after Lunch; cleaned the stove, fridge, counters, and microwave. For Dinner tonight it’s Red Snapper. I prepared a Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole and Cut Green Beans.



I purchased a beautiful Red Snapper Fillet while at Kroger yesterday. I’ll be preparing it by a recipe I found on the Taste of Home website, Herb-Crusted Red Snapper. This is the 3rd time I’ve had Snapper using this recipe. 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 bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; and mix until finely ground Dip fillets in herb mixture, coating both sides. Then in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat, cook the fillet in Extra Light Olive 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. I just love all Seafood and Fish!





For one side I prepared some Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. To make the dish I’ll need 1 box of the Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes, 2 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 3/4 cups boiling water, and 1/2 cup 2% Milk.







To prepare it; Preheat the oven on 450°F . Then in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Add the 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle crunchy onion topping on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Well seasoned and Cheesy, excellent side!






Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Red snapper is a low-calorie, lean source of protein that is rich in selenium, vitamin A, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. A diet that regularly incorporates these nutrients may significantly benefit your health by preventing serious medical conditions.





An appetizing blend of herbs complements the mild flavor of these flaky fillets from field editor Nella Parker of Hersey, Michigan. Red pepper flakes give the entree its zip.
