Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w Baked Fries 008
Started of the morning with a Poached egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Did my morning workout and off to Kroger this morning. Needed quite a few items today. Back home ran the vacuum and dusted. Noisy day around here, our next door neighbor was having new shingles put on his roof and repair to his wooden deck. Another sunny day out, about 70 degrees. This might be our Indian Summer we are having weather wise. Cooler temps moving in over the weekend. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w Baked Fries 002

I had purchased the Tilapia at Meijer last week and had them in the freezer. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and blackened flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. Served it on a Kroger Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun.

Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w Baked Steak Fries 005
Our streak of Hazy, Hot, and Humid continues. Really humid out there today! My dad is still in the hospital, they traced down the internal bleeding and it was nothing serious. He will have to go through a few treatments to correct it though. Also he’s having a lot of trouble breathing and he’s very weak, so he might be in there a few days. We had a heavy wind and thunder-storm move through late last night. Spent some of the day picking up branches and blowing the leaves and debris. Just cooking for myself tonight, Mom’s having dinner up at the hospital with Dad tonight. So I prepared a Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Steak Fries.

 

Seasoned Tilapia Sandwich w Baked Steak Fries 001
I had purchased the Tilapia from Costco a while back and had them in the freezer. I grabbed 2 of them from the freezer and laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried 2 fillets one for my dinner tonight and one for my lunch tomorrow. I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled it in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Using a Cast Iron Skillet,I Pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. They came out golden brown and delicious! Served it on a Perfection Deli Mini Wheat Sub Bun.

 
For a side for my Fish Sandwich I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Beer-Battered Fish Tacos

Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 012
The weather is heating up a bit around here, in the 80’s and a little humid. Went early this morning to our local Kroger and had to buy a new Oil Thermometer, got the old one out and it was broke. I need to make tonight’s dinner. Came back and did a load of laundry and picked up around the house. Then at Noon I met a couple of long time High School friends for lunch at BW 3’s. We usually meet over there when my one friend comes into town for a visit. I like it there because there is a lot of room and not so crowded in my wheelchair. Great catching up with both of them. For dinner tonight its Beer-Battered Fish Tacos.

 

While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some nice looking Tilapia Fillets, which I’m using for tonight’s dinner. Came Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 002across the recipe for Beer-Battered Fish Tacos on the Cooking.com website so I thought I would give it a try! For the Fish I’ll need; Canola Oil, 1 cup All-Purpose Flour, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper, 1 cup beer (, 1 pound Tilapia Fillet (cut into 1-inch wide strips), and Mission Flour Tortillas. To prepare it I’m using a small Dutch Oven. In the small, heavy-bottomed Dutch Oven fitted with a deep-fry thermometer, I added enough vegetable oil so that it covered the bottom inch of the pan. Heated on medium-high.

 

 

Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 001
In a shallow bowl, stirred together the flour, salt and pepper. Stir in the beer to make a batter. Added the Tilapia to the batter to coat. When the oil reached 350 degrees F, added the Tilapia in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Also be very careful to avoid any splashing of the hot oil when adding the Tilapia. Cook the pieces until crispy and golden, about 2 to 4 minutes. Drained on paper towels. Divide the fish among the tortillas and served with the toppings.

 

 

For optional toppings you can use; Sliced radishes, Salsa, Sour cream, Cilantro, Lettuce, Avocado, or Lime wedges. I Beer-Battered Fish Tacos 010used Sliced Radishes, Simple Truth Black Bean and Corn Salsa, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, and Lettuce. And what a Taco! The Tilapia was incredible with the Beer Batter, and all the toppings work perfect with Tilapia. Another one of those”Keeper Recipes”, that I’ll be fixing again! I’ve left the original recipe along with its web link at the end of the post. I made some changes to the recipe, one being using Mission Flour Tortillas instead of a Corn Tortilla. I prefer the Flour over Corn, just don’t enjoy the Corn Tortillas as much. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Tacos

 

 

Blackened Tilapia Tacos 010
Started the day with a couple of slices of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon, a Scrambled Egg, all on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Great way to start the day. Got my morning workout in and went to Kroger to pick up a few items. On the way home stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad, along with their Morning Coffee. Back home it was house cleaning day; the usual dust, vacuum, and straightening every thing up. For dinner tonight it’s Blackened Tilapia Tacos, which could become a go to favorite!

 

 

Blackened Tilapia Tacos 004

To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillet down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and heated flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. I then took a fork and cut the Tilapia up into smaller pieces for the Tacos.

 

 

Blackened Tilapia Tacos 002
I used Mission Flour Soft Tortillas for my Tortillas. Then for toppings, along with the Blackened Tilapia, I used; Wholly Molly Guacamole, Fresh Cilantro, Green Giant Steam Crisp Sweet Corn Kernels, Sliced Black and Green Olives, Chopped Jalapeño Slices, and Dole Crushed Pineapple. Put all this on your Taco and you are in business! Just a perfect blend of the Blackened Tilapia, a little heat from the Jalapeño Pepper, and the sweetness from the Corn and Crushed Pineapple. We had some delicious Tacos tonight! For dessert later a SO Delicious Dairy Free Minis Vanilla Sandwich.

Some fantastic Tilapia Recipes from the Cooking Light website!

Top-Rated Tilapia Recipes
Sensational recipes for this versatile, budget-friendly fish.

 
Broiled Tilapia with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce

Tilapia has a lot going for it. It’s cheap, and it’s everywhere—both compelling reasons to give it a try. Flavor-wise, tilapia is admittedly the mildest of the mild flaky white fish, but that can be turned into a virtue: It’s a great starter fish for kids or anyone wary of seafood that is too “fishy”. This makes tilapia a versatile base for a multitude of flavor approaches, as you’ll see in our Top-Rated Tilapia Recipes.

In this recipe, ginger, curry paste, and coconut milk combine in a spicy sauce for a dish that has converted more than a few people to love this fish.

“I’m not a big fish eater, so I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to serve it. This one is a winner!” wrote reviewer Kelly. “Once you get the chopping done, it is a snap to prepare. Will definitely make again!”….

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

 

Blackened Tilapia Sandwich Fries 007
When it rains it pours, especially around here! It started raining about 9:30 this morning and hasn’t let up since, even a couple of thunderstorms passing through. They say we have a day or two of this and then clearing and 70 degrees, hope they’re right! Not much going on today. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 
I purchased the Tilapia from Kroger Sunday. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1/2 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillet down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Canola Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and heated flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. I served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie hamburger Bun. I topped it with some Hidden Valley Spicy Chipotle Pepper Sandwich Spread & Dip. If you haven’t tried this Spread, and you like some added heat this is your Spread! It’s not that over powering heat but it is Spicy. It’s a creamy and thick Spread so if you like Spicy give it a try.

 

 
For a side I baked some of my favorite Fries, Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Served them with a bit of Hunt’s Ketchup. Had a Snapple Diet Peach Drink also. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Wanted to pass along a fantastic sounding Tilapia recipe from the Cooks Recipes website.

 
Blackened Tilapia Quesadillas with Ginger-Scallion-Red Pepper Sauce

 

Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 clove roasted garlic, mashed
1/2 teaspoon grated gingerroot
1/4 roasted red bell pepper, peeled, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallion – divided use
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure chile powder, such as ancho or jalapeño
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons salt
6 ounces boneless tilapia fillet, or other lowfat fish
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 1/2 cups shredded fontina cheese
2 (8-inch) flour tortillas

Cooking Directions:

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and bell pepper; cook for 1 minute. Add half of the scallions and cook for 1 more minute. Increase heat to high and add cream. Stir until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and set aside.
Prepare blackening seasoning by combining chile powder, pepper, oregano, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add peanut oil. Just before cooking, dredge tilapia fillets in spices. When oil starts to smoke, add tilapia and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side until golden brown.
Remove fish from heat and flake apart into bite-size pieces. Transfer to a bowl and combine with red pepper sauce. Scatter half of the cheese over a tortilla, followed by fish mixture. Top with remaining cheese. Cover with second tortilla and press down.
Heat a pan over medium heat; cook quesadilla for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until lightly brown and cheese is melted. Remove from pan and cut into wedges. Garnish with remaining scallion.
Makes 2 servings.
