Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and French Bread

 
I was awakened about 3:00 this morning by the severe storms that moved through the area. Heavy wind, hail, and some heavy rain. It slowed up and I fell back to sleep and then around 5:00 this morning the next round came Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper Baked Fingerling Potatoes 007through. We had some trees down and flooding in the area, no damage around here though. So after all the excitement I woke up hungry! I prepared a couple of Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, 2 slices of toasted Healthy Life Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Green Tea. Not a bad way to start the day! After Breakfast did a load of laundry. After that I ran the vacuum, and dusted (hate dusting). After Lunch I headed over to spend the afternoon with Dad at the rehab center, he’s being released on the 28th of this month. Been 2 months since he’s been home. For dinner tonight it’s Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 003
I’m using the Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends dropped off to me yesterday on their return from Florida. It’s another one of those beautiful Grouper fillet! To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I cut it into smaller pieces. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004
I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! Plus as you can tell as big as this filet was I only had half of it for dinner. The other half for lunch tomorrow!

 
Then I also Baked some Fingerling Potatoes, picked up a bag at our local Kroger. They come in a small bag, Melissa’s Fingerling Potato Medley. It’s a variety of 4-5 different Potatoes including Fingerling Potatoes, which I love using! ToFingerling Potatoes Bag prepare them I started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Love those Potatoes! Perfect side dish for any dinner, especially Fish.

 

 

French Bread
Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For dessert later a Skinny Cow Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

 
Restless night last night. It seemed like I woke up every hour on the hour. I was awake at 6:Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper Baked Fingerling Potatoes 00700 this morning and just stayed up. For Breakfast it was an Eggo Waffle and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and some cleaning around the house. Later on after Lunch I took the car out and had it washed and the inside cleaned. They had to take Dad from the rehab to the family doctor, he has an inner ear infection. Just when it seems he’s getting stronger and making progress he has a set back. We hope to have him home soon but it looks like it’s going to be a bit longer. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots

 

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carro 003
For Breakfast had a toasted healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast I headed to Meijer, wanted to go early and get back. Back home I had to break out the leaf blower, the driveway and deck was littered with leaves and twigs from the wind of the last couple of days. Had lunch and after that headed to the hospital to see Dad. He might be released this weekend, he looks so much better! Back at home finished up some laundry for Mom and then on to some light house cleaning. Busy, busy day! Finally for dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots.

 

Fried Gulf Coast Grouper 001
I had been preparing the Red Snapper my friends had brought back from the Florida Gulf Coast, which I used all of it. So now I broke out the Grouper that they had for me. I got one of the fillets out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. It’s one beautiful Grouper fillet! To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

 

 

Blackend Grouper Grain Carrots 001

I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood!

 

 

 

Minute Multi Grain Medley (2)

For one side dish I prepared some Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love the Minute Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving, which isn’t bad for a Grain Dish. Then I also prepared a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

 

 

 

 

Minute Multi-Grain Medley

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 Minute Multi Grain Medleyminutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.

Directions
1 -Do NOT use the bag for cooking. COMBINE water and contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water.
2 – BRING to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed.
3 – REMOVE from heat. Fluff with fork.

Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carro 008
Had a light Breakfast of a Toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Not a whole lot going on today. Did some house cleaning and helped Mom with some laundry. Did some cleaning and straightening up in the pantry and freezer. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Multi Grain Medley and Baby Carrots.

 

 
Some good friends of mine always bring me Gulf Coast Grouper and Snapper when they return from their Florida Vacations. I had one last bag left in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ve got some beautiful fillets of Grouper to fry for dinner tonight! I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillets in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillets.
