Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not much of an appetite this morning. Rain and 52 degrees outside. My back is still giving me some trouble. So another day of moving slow and resting. Just as well with the weather outside! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I had purchased a couple of Rainbow Trout Fillets at Meijer and them in the freezer. I laid a package of 1 fillet of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it all I’ll need is; Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning, and 1 Teaspoon chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Creole Seasoning!

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Dish! I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I just love the trio of the Cajun Rainbow Trout, Hash Browns, and Green Beans, one of my favorites! For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning

There’s nothing quite like Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning. A blend of spices that could only come from New Orleans offers a deliciously different flavor than your standard salt and pepper. Shake it on pretty much anything from meats and seafood to soups, salads and eggs.

Ingredients

Salt, Dextrose, Spices (Including Red Pepper, Paprika), Garlic, Sugar, Onion, Disodium Inosinate And Guanylate (Flavor Enhancers), Extractives Of Paprika, And Natural Flavors.

  1. Any tips for the fish not breaking apart? Thanks!

    • For me I always make sure my skillet is heated and ready to go. Then after placing your fillet in the skillet don’t move it around, let that side of the fish get done. The Rainbow Trout I had tonight I fried for 3 minutes a side. Also it helps if you have a spatula that’s bigger than the average size one. That really makes it a lot easier to flip and remove from the skillet. Hope that helps out. 🙂

      • I think people turn their fish too many times and it starts to break up. Just flip once, and the tip about the really big spatula is perfect!

      • I was bad for that many years ago and I’ve always watched Food Network and Tyler Florence. And he always said to leave your fish alone until done on that 1st side then flip, it shouldn’t ever break up. He was right! I found the larger spatula at Meijer one day.

      • I’ll try this, thanks!

      • 🙂

  2. Trout is my favorite fresh-water fish!

    • I just picked a huge Rainbow Trout Fillet at Meijer today. Washed and sliced up to smaller Fillets and froze it.
