Today’s Menu: Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans




For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg. Then I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and served the Poached Egg on 1/2 of it. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 84 degrees and a passing Thunderstorm with some strong winds. Rain on and off throughout the day. After Breakfast I washed Mom’s bed linens and pillow cases. Later on cleaned and straightened the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Salmon w/ Long Grain & Wild Rice and Cut Green Beans.


I picked up a Wild Caught North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Kroger and had it in the Freezer, sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’ll be seasoning it with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, LiteHouse Dried Dill, and Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it I’ll be grilling it in a Fish Fillet Grill Basket.


I had forgot I had a Fish Grill Basket. I had it stored in the shed and came across it the other day when I was moving things around. Cleaned it up and it was ready to go. To start I seasoned my Salmon. Then went out and started the grill. Back inside I put some Extra Light Olive Oil on the Basket. Next I got my Salmon loaded into the Grill Basket. With the Grill heated I set the Grill Basket into the Grill and shut the lid. After 3 minutes I flipped the Grill Basket to the other side of the Salmon. That’s why I like these Grill Baskets, just flip them over to grill the other side of your Fish. I cooked that side for about 3 minutes and shut the Grill off and removed the Grill Basket from inside the Grill.

The Salmon came out Grilled perfectly! Heated just right to where the Salmon was just starting to flake. Delicious! Grilling Salmon is the way to go!




To go with the Salmon I prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect.



I also opened up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I heated them up in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Stirred often until heated, then served.I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.









Atlantic Salmon
The Atlantic salmon is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean, in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, in the north Pacific Ocean.
