Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic & Herb Potatoes

 

 

No Breakfast or Tea this morning. I was fasting since Mid – Night because I had a Doctor’s Appointment at 7:30. Went in for my check up of Sugar, Cholesterol, and such. Afterward I picked Mom up and we went to Mejier. Picked up some fresh Vegetables and Fruit with a few other items. Back home did laundry and a few things around the house. We’ve had 3 neighbors here the past week having to be rushed to the Hospital for various things. So for Dinner tonight its Fried Walleye w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic & Herb Potatoes and Baked Multi Grain Bread Loaf.

 

While at Meijer yesterday I picked up some more of the Walleye Fillets. I really love the Meijer Seafood Department, good selection and decent prices. I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 2 small packages of Diced Butternut Squash at Meijer. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley. To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

For another side I picked up a package of Little Potato Company Garlic and Herb Potatoes at Meijer. They come in a tin, ready for the oven container. Turned the oven to 450 and sat the container on a small baking sheet. It comes with a Seasoning Packet of Garlic and Herb. I first brushed the Potatoes with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoned them with Seasoning Packet. Baked the for 45 minutes. The Potatoes came out perfect. Really enjoyed the Seasoning on them. Served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. For Dessert/Snack later a Diet Peach Snapple. Take Care All and Stay Safe!

  1. How does walleye taste? I’ve never had it before.

    • For me Walleye is the best Fresh Water Fish there is. So meaty, cooks up perfect and tasty.

The Saboscrivner

The Saboscrivner is a librarian who writes about food in Orlando, Florida, and beyond. I was inspired by Chew, a brilliant, bizarre, food-obsessed comic book series about characters with food-related super powers. Creators John Layman and Rob Guillory introduced their saboscrivner in Chew #3 with a description: "[A saboscrivner] can write about food so accurately, so vividly and with such precision – people get the actual sensation of taste when reading about the meals [he] writes about."
