Today’s Menu: Pan-Fried Dover Sole w/ Rice/Wild Rice and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. I topped it off with a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Colby Longhorn Cheese as it was getting done. Then I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly sunny and 37 degrees and not nearly as windy as yesterday. The wind was terrible yesterday, so strong it brought down part of my neighbors carport awning. After Breakfast we went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I needed some Rozoni Healthy Harvest Pasta and Jungle Jim’s is the only store that carries it anymore, so sad! Needed a few other items also. What a store! After Lunch I got the leaf blower and push broom out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas from all the leaves, limbs, and trash that was blown all over by the high winds. For Dinner tonight Pan-Fried Dover Sole w/ Rice/Wild Rice and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I’m having the sea to Table West Coast Dover Sole again! I had this same Dinner back in January and it was so good I’m having it again tonight! Sole is a flaky and mild flavored fish with a sweet flavor. As the other Sea to Table Products it comes frozen with 4 fillets per package. I’m preparing all 4 of the fillets. To make tonight’s dish I’ll need; McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, and Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I washed the Fillets off in cold water. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Bread Crumbs and let sit for 5 minutes. Next I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating up I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the 2 fillets. As they started cooking I drizzled a bit of Lemon Juice across both fillets along with Dried Parsley. I cooked them for 3 minutes then flipped them over and continued cooking them for another 3 minutes, until both sides were a beautiful golden brown.

 

 

 

As last time, the Dover Sole came out delicious! Fried up perfect, nice crust. The Sole was as described; flaky with and light sweet taste to it. Excellent Fish, look forward to having it again soon!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So as the Fish was cooking I prepared a box of Lundberg ORGANIC WHOLE GRAIN and WILD RICE – ORIGINAL. I bought a couple of boxes of it on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market and I had this box left. I first sliced up some Baby Portabella Mushrooms. I’ll also be adding some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese to it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; In a medium saucepan I combined 1 ¾ cups of water, sliced mushrooms, rice, beans and seasoning packet, and 1 Tbsp. extra light olive oil. Stirred well and brought to a boil. Cover and reduced the heat to low. Instructions said do not lift lid while cooking. Simmer for 32 minutes. Remove it from the heat. Let stand covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork and sprinkle with the Grated Parmesan Cheese and serve. Very, very, good Rice Dish as all the Lundberg’s Products are.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Love having these Fish Dinners! For Dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table
West Coast Dover Sole
Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

* Why We Love It: Similar to other flatfish such as fluke, Dover Sole has a sweet flavor with a flaky and delicate texture – perfect for a simple yet eye-catching plate. Unlike the European Dover Sole, West Coast Dover Sole is a member of the flounder family.

* Cooking Tip: For a classic French-inspired meal, pan sauté in a butter and caper sauce, sprinkle with parsley and serve with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Get the recipe.

* Where It’s From: Dover Sole, rated as a Best Choice by Seafood Watch, is from Astoria, Oregon, a small fishing town of about 10,000 people located at the mouth of the Columbia River just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.

* Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our supply partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Today’s Menu: Seared Scallops and Fried Skate w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I had a another of the Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Cup – Turkey sausage Crumbles, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. What a change in weather! The last 2 days it’s been a high of 68 degrees and rain, today it was 12 degrees this morning and a high of 27 degrees and sunny! 41 degree difference. After Breakfast I bundled up and headed to Meijer for a few items. On the way back home stopped by the ATM, got gas, and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home it was back to bed and rested, still lingering Sinus Infection but it’s getting better. For Dinner tonight a Seafood Special! I prepared Seared Scallops and Fried Skate w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

I was planning on just having the Winter Skate Fillet but as I was getting that out of the freezer a small package of Sea Scallops fell out of the freezer so I took that as a sign that I should have the Scallops also! I purchased the Winter Skate from the Sea to Table website while the Sea Scallops are from Kroger.

 

 

 

 

 


To make the Dish I’ll need; 1/4 cup of 2% Milk, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs for dredging, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare them I put the skate fillet in a large dish. Poured the milk over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to turn the fillets in the milk so they are coated on both sides. Then I scattered the Bread Crumbs over a large dish. Lightly dredge the fillets in the Bread Crumbs on both sides.

 

 

 

 

With fillet breaded I heated the Olive Oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, I added one of the fillets. Saute on one side until it was golden brown, about 3 minutes. Then turn and cook on the other side until golden brown, about 3 minutes more. They came out beautiful! And I have a found a new Seafood to have! These are so good. They fried up very easy and have a very fresh taste, their taste is similar to scallops. I love this Skate!

 

 

 

 


I used Kroger Seafood Sea Scallops. I took a Cast Iron Skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, also added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and 1 table spoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Heated it up on medium high. Then I washed the Scallops in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. I’ll be using Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. In a small microwavable bowl I melted a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then dipped the Scallops in the Butter one at a time, just buttering the tops and bottoms of the Scallop. Then I took about 2 tablespoons of the Blackened Seasoning and put it in a small bowl, and took the Scallops one at a time and pressed the top and bottom of each Scallop into the Seasoning. I had my skillet already heated up, added the Scallops and cooked each Scallop 3 minutes per side. As the Scallops were cooking I cut a Lemon in half and squirted a little Lemon Juice across the tops of them. They turned out delicious! The freshness of the Scallops, the butter, Lemon, and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning gave them an incredible flavor.

 

 


For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 


I warmed up the leftover Canned Green Beans from last night’s Dinner. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! For Dessert later A Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table – Atlantic Winter Skate

Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

Why We Love It: Loved by chefs and New England fishermen alike, Skate wings are sweet like scallops, delicate but firm like lobster, and often compared to flounder and sole. These skin-off fillets are hand trimmed and fan-shaped, so they make for a uniquely beautiful and delicious plate.
Cooking Tip: For a classic French-inspired meal, pan sauté in a butter and caper sauce, sprinkle with parsley and serve with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Get the recipe.
Where It’s From: This Winter Skate is caught off the shores of Chatham, Massachusetts — a fishing town at the elbow of Cape Cod. With an ever-growing stock level, Winter Skate is rated as a Good Alternative by Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch.
Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our fishermen partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Sea Scallops
Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. “One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories,” says Bowden. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium. (Clams and oysters provide similar benefits.)

I came across the Sea to Table a while back and have made a couple of orders with them. The orders arrived in very secure packaging and the products were fantastic! They have a great selection of Seafood I could not buy here in land-locked Southwest Ohio! I’ve tried the Atlantic Winter Skate – Delicious, The West Coast Dover Sole – Delicious, and the Gulf of Maine Redfish – Delicious! Looking forward to trying all the selections! Below I’ve left the links to their site and a little about Sea to Table, check them out today!

Today’s Menu: Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans

 

For Breakfast this morning it was Steak and Eggs! I prepared a SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Fillet Mignon. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. I it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. To go with it I cooked 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. This is the way to start the day! It’s a Heat Wave around here! It was 35 degrees early this morning. We had a high of 56 degrees and mostly cloudy. After my Breakfast I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home later I got broom and leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck area, it was a mess! That was about it for my day. Kicked back and watched TV and got ready for the Super Bowl later tonight. For Dinner I tried another Sea to Table Fish, Gulf of Maine Redfish. Tonight its Fried Gulf of Maine Redfish w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

Being a Fish and Seafood Lover like I am, I’m sure glad I came across the Sea to Table website! They have some fantastic selections of Fish and Seafood, be sure to check them out (https://www.sea2table.com/) Tonight I’m trying their Gulf of Maine Redfish. Gulf of Maine Redfish is – This deepwater New England classic — also known as the Snapper of the Northeast — has bright red skin and flaky meat that is slightly sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

The Redfish came frozen, 4 – 3 oz. Fillets. I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare my Redfish I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I first seasoned them with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Bread Crumbs and let sit for 5 minutes. Next I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating up I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the 2 fillets. As they started cooking I drizzled a bit of Lemon Juice across both fillets along with Dried Parsley. I cooked them for 3 minutes then flipped them over and continued cooking them for another 3 minutes, until both sides were a beautiful golden brown.

 

 

 

As the other Sea to Table Products, the Redfish is just as good! Fried up perfect, nice crust. The Fish was as described; flaky with and light sweet taste to it. It fried up like Ocean Perch, it curled as you cooked it. The Fish is a real meaty fish, which I love. Excellent Fish, look forward to having quite often! Just so happy I came across the Sea to Table website. I’m able to try fish that I would have never had a chance to try living here in Ohio, like tonight’s Redfish and the Winter Skate I had last week and the Dover Sole. Plus there’s more I haven’t tried and looking forward to trying them also.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 


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. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Sea to Table – Gulf of Maine Redfish
Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen

Why We Love It: Restaurants and home cooks all over New England embrace Gulf of Maine Redfish for its mild, slightly sweet taste and flaky meat. This fish makes a great alternative to other white-meat fish like Snapper, and is perfect for a long list of recipes. Each fillet is hand-cut and boneless, and retains its tender, bright red skin that helps lock in moisture no matter how you cook it.

Cooking Tip: Cut the fillets into bite-sized pieces and combine with veggies, tomatoes and broth for a delicious bouillabaisse.
Where It’s From: Redfish made a triumphant return from being overfished in the Atlantic Ocean, and now thrive in the deep waters off the coasts of Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our supply partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.
