Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 


For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Also I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy morning out and 52 degrees. Had a high of 84 degrees with rain moving in the late afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer to pick up some Herb and Pepper Plants. I’ve got Sweet Basil and Sweet Peppers growing so far. I love planting stuff and watching it grow. I guess I learned to love that from Grandparents. I was always out on their farm during the Summer. Really miss them and those fun days! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

Purchased the Cod Loin Fillets at Kroger and had them in the freezer. So I laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. The Panko gives the Sandwich a great crunch. The Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 


For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s my 4th day of Fish and Seafood – Shrimp, Walleye, Fried Oysters, and Cod today. For Dessert later something new, a Skinny Cow Frozen Greek Yogurt Fudgetastic Swirl Bar.

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i went to Walmart for a few items and went to their Garden Center also. I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Outside had rain early and then partly sunny and 85 degrees. After Lunch I finished repotting some Pepper Plants and Herb Plants I had bought at Walmart. We finally got the shed cleaned out and organized! Now I have all kinds of room for storage and work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 


While at Meijer the other day I bought a couple of fillets of Walleye. 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!

 

For one side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 


For another side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has became the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

To start this rainy Friday morning off I prepared one of my favorites, Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. We had Thunderstorms overnight and into the morning here. Mostly cloudy and 76 degrees in the afternoon. Finished up on the Kitchen painting, looks 100% better! For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 


I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. I had a couple small fillets of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful.

 

As my Grouper was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Potato Pancakes and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I tried something new. I was at Meijer yesterday with Mom and I cam across some Ham, Artisan Crafted Kentucky Legend Hickory Smoked Ham. It was a small 2 1/2 lb. Ham, and it looked delicious! So I sliced off a few slices and heated it up in a skillet. Served it with a Sunnyside Up fried Egg and 2 slices of toasted Aunt Millie’s Bread (lightly buttered). Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The Ham was moist and absolutely delicious! I’ll be having this a lot more often, glad I came across it at Meijer!

 

 

 

 

 

Outside it was our warmest day in quite some time, 88 degrees and partly cloudy. We still have a lot of stuff to go through out in the shed so I spent most of the day doing that, and still things to go through! Dad has so many tools and things out there that’s never used anymore. For Dinner tonight its a Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Potato Pancakes and Green Beans.

 

 

While at Meijer yesterday I bought a couple of fillets of Walleye. 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!

 

 

So for a side I prepared some Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix, my favorite (Never made a cake I didn’t like!). Just add 2 Egg Beater’s (1/2 Cup), 2 1/4 Cups Water, to the mix stir and fry! Easy and makes one good Potato Pancake and their only 80 calories and 18 carbs per serving (3 Potato Pancakes). The whole family love’s these Potato Pancakes! They turn out so good and easy to reheat the leftovers.

 

 

 

 

For a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also reheated a couple of slices of leftover Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s a beautiful day out there today, 78 degrees and mostly sunny! After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items and then on the way back home I picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. After she ate we headed out to go see Dad. His health is really declining and not a thing we can do about it. Back home I got the cart out and did some yard work and then repotted a couple of plants for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

Ready for the skillet!

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

 

 

 

Golden Brown

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I heated up a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I like using these because there’s one serving in each cup. So no waste if I’m just cooking for myself. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

Salmon steak and fillets

Salmon
Salmon is the common name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Windy, Thunderstorms, Humid, and 80 degrees today. But it still beats Cold and Snow! Cleaned the house today, dusted and vacuum. Then straightened up the pantry and did a Spice Check. I went through all the Spices and checked their Expiration Dates. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

 

Golden Brown, I love these!

 

I had purchased some Catfish Nuggets from Kroger yesterday. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

 

 

 

 

As the Skillet is heating, slice the Potatoes. Slice the Potatoes width wise about a 1/4 inch from the bottom of the Potato. Then slice them length wise all the way through. If you are not going to fry the Potato slices right away, put then in a large bowl of Salted Cold Water until ready to use.

 

 

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 


For another side I prepared some Sugar Snap Peas. To prepare these; Heat a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the Sugar Snap Peas, Salt and Pepper and saute, tossing occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes, until the sugar snap peas are crisp tender. Place the Sugar Snap Peas in a serving bowl, sprinkle with Sea Salt and serve. We haven’t had these in a while and turned out great! I also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with It free Peach Slices.

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Golden Hominy

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It was a beautiful Sunrise this morning the east horizon was just lit up with color. Finished up a few things around the yard before rain moved back in around 11::00 this morning. For the day it was 58 degrees with rain. The yard is looking a lot better! I was able to finally get caught up with a lot of yard work. Later in the day Hoveround came over to make some repairs on my Hoveround Mobility Chair. Being an amputee I don’t know what I would without my Hoveround! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Seasoned Pinto Beans and Golden Hominy.

 


Last time I was at Costco yesterday I bought a package of fresh Canadian Walleye Fillets! There was 7 Fillets in the package, I gave Mom a couple of them that she froze and I had one that day and had froze the rest. So I laid a bag of 2 Fillets out in the fridge to thaw overnight.

 

 

 

So I’m preparing 2 Fillets. 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! Costco has an excellent Fish and Seafood selections!

 

 

As the Fillets were cooking I prepared my side dishes. I prepared a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Pinto Beans. It doesn’t get much better for a canned Beans than these! To prepare it just empty the contents into a medium saucepan. Cover it and bring it to a boil. Stir and reduce the heat to slow simmer and serve when ready. I love Beans of all kinds and these Seasoned Pinto Beans are at the top of the list, love the Seasoning.

 

 

 

For another side I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden Hominy. For those that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Then I heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and a high of 49 degrees out. After Breakfast headed out to Mernard’s. They had a few things on sale this week we needed around and for outside the house. Waiting for it to dry out around here, getting behind on some outside work that needs to be done. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

Last time I was at Meijer I purchased 2 Rockfish Fillets. Ocean Rockfish tastes similar to Snapper. The Fillets cost less than 1/2 than what you pay for Snapper. So I picked up a couple of Fillets washed them off in cold water, cut the fillets in half, and stored them in a hefty plastic bag and had them in the freezer. I laid 1 of the bags out in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll be cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet and will need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley along with Zatarain’s Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

Seasoned on both sides with Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri Mix. Seasoned on both sides with Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri Mix. Next heated a Cast-Iron Skillet over high heat. As the Pan is heating I added the Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I placed the fillets in the pan, skin side down. Press down gently on the fillets with a spatula for about 20 seconds to prevent curling. Lowered the heat to medium and let cook until the fish is golden and caramelized around edges, about 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully flip fillets and until golden all over and cooked through, 45 to 90 seconds more.

 


The Rockfish fried up to a perfect Golden Brown. It does have a taste similar to Snapper. Really a delicious meaty version of Snapper, and costs a lot less! Really enjoyed it and Mom, who isn’t a huge Fish Lover, really likes them.

 

 

 

 


To go with the Rockfish I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I love Mac and Cheese with Fish. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

Rockfish – Sebastes

Sebastes is a genus of fish in the family Sebastidae (though some include this in Scorpaenidae), most of which have the common name of rockfish. A few are called ocean perch, sea perch or redfish instead. Most of the Sebastes species live in the north Pacific, although two (Sebastes capensis and Sebastes oculatus) live in the south Pacific/Atlantic and four (Sebastes fasciatus, Sebastes mentella, Sebastes norvegicus and Sebastes viviparus) live in the north Atlantic. The coast off South California is the area of highest rockfish diversity, with 56 species living in the Southern California Bight.

Rockfish are an important sport and commercial fish, and many species have been overfished. As a result, seasons are tightly controlled in many areas. Sebastes are sometimes fraudulently substituted for the more expensive northern red snapper.

Rockfish has a sweet, mild flavor, with a flaky, medium-firm texture. It is best baked, sautéed, broiled or poached. Since the flesh tends to flake easily, it is not the best fish for grilling. Try it with a little lemon to bring out the sweet flavor without overpowering.

Today’s Menu: Baked Battered Cod Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, lightly fried some of the leftover Baked Ham, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain, Thunderstorms, and a high of 70 degrees. Real Spring time weather! After Lunch we went over to spend some time with Dad. He seems to going down hill quickly now, talks out of his head a lot. Sure hate to him suffer and go through this. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Battered Cod Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

 

 

I used Trident PubHouse Battered Cod. I always buy a couple of boxes of this when I’m at Jungle Jim’s International Market and now Kroger carries them also. They have all different types and breading of Fish fillets. I like the Battered Cod because it’s a little lower in calories and carbs than the others. I baked the Cod at 425 degrees for 16 minutes, turning once. This is the best tasting frozen fish I’ve found, nice size Fillets with an excellent Beer Batter Breading! Served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun.

 

 

To go with our Sandwiches I baked some of my favorite Fries – Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Freshwater Shrimp and Seasoned Grouper w/ Artisan Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We ended up with around 3″ of snow which should melt tomorrow, 49 degrees for a high. I wanted to prepare Dad a good meal tonight. Hospice is putting him in a rehab unit for 5 days to give us a bit of a break as it’s a full time job taking care of him. And we do need the reset. Me and Mom are just beat! We’ll be looking for full time placement in the upcoming days and weeks. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Freshwater Shrimp and Seasoned Grouper w/ Artisan Seasoned Petite Potatoes, Cut Italian Green Beans, and Baked Multi Grain Bread.

 

 

 


While at Kroger earlier I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

 


Poured about 1/4 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper that my friends bring me from Florida. They just dropped off a big bag of Fish caught in the Florida Gulf! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I first rinsed it off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then cut the fillet into 3 pieces. Next I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got out the good ole Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. A perfect pairing for the Shrimp!

 

For one side I tried a new one, Private Selection Petite Potatoes Herbes De Provence in Artisan Seasoning Blend. I seen these at Kroger a couple of days ago, and being a Potato Lover I had to try them! They are similar to the Little Potato Co. Potatoes that I prepare. It comes in a microwavable tray. Just heat in microwave for 5 and 1/2 minutes. Next add a 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and then the Seasoning Packet. Stir and serve! They turned out piping hot and delicious, really like the Seasoning provided.

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. So to prepare them just empty the can into a small sauce pan and simmer until heated. I love the taste of these, just season with a bit of Sea Salt and it’s ready! I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. Plus I love having Bread every meal and Crusty Bread with Pasta Dishes. For dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.
