Today’s Menu: Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout Hash Browns 006
Had the three H’s going today for our weather, Hot – Hazy – Humid. Mom picked Dad up this morning at the rehab center and brought him home for the day. We had to take him back about 3:00 though. He’s still not ready to come back home, still really weak. Went to the Kroger up the road for Mom and over in the produce they were just putting out my favorite Apple, the Honeycrisp Apple! Love these Apples, flavor packed and a good crisp Apple. They have been out of season for a while now and been buying Fuji Apples, good but nearly the size of the Honeycrisp. For dinner tonight I prepared Cajun Rainbow Trout w/ Hash Browns and Green Beans.

 

 

 

Rainbow Trout Hash Browns 001
While at Kroger the day before I noticed they had some beautiful Rainbow Trout Fillets, I knew I my dinner! First time I’ve tried it Cajun and I love Cajun so why not Cajun Rainbow Trout. To prepare it all I’ll need is; 1 Rainbow Trout Fillet, 1 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 Teaspoon Cajun Seasoning, and 2 Teaspoons chopped Parsley Flakes. To prepare it I preheated the broiler. Patted the fillets dry and lightly brush both sides with oil. Sprinkled both sides evenly with Cajun seasoning. Placed skin side down on broiler rack and broil 4-6 inches from heat for 4-5 minutes or until the Trout flakes easily when I tested it with a fork. You can add a Lemon Wedge with it if you like. Excellent recipe, you have the fresh taste of the Trout along with all the flavor from the Cajun Seasoning! An easy Keeper Recipe.

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread

Shrimp Smoked Turkey Sausage Gumbo 005

 
Another chilly morning, 30 degrees, that led to a sunny but chilly Autumn Day. It was computer clean up day today. Deleted some old stuff that I had saved and ran all the scans and clean ups. For dinner, the comfort food keeps coming, Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo w/ Cornbread.

 

 

 

I had a bag of Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp and a package of Butterball Hardwood Smoked Sausage in the freezer so I laid both out in the fridge to thaw overnight. For the Gumbo stock I used my favorite, the Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit. So easy to prepare and just flat out delicious! The Luzianne Gumbo Dinner Kit contains a packet that contains the Rice, Vegetables, Seasoning, and Roux Mix. I add the Butterball Hardwood Smoke Turkey Sausage (14 oz. Package), Jumbo Shrimp (1 lb. Package), Water, Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and a bit of added Sea Salt.

 

Cornbread
T o prepare it; take a 4-5 Quart pot, add 6 cups of Water and 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and bring it to a boil. Add the Luzianne Gumbo, while stirring. Empty half of the Red Pepper Packet into the Gumbo. Put remainder aside. Caution with this stuff it is HOT! Reduce the Heat , Cover and simmer for 18 minutes. Meanwhile rinse the Shrimp off and in a medium skillet Brown the Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and slice into smaller pieces. Taste, and if desired, add remaining Red Pepper from packet and Sea Salt. Add the Shrimp and Sausage Cover and continue to simmer for 7 more minutes. The aroma is incredible and the taste is as well! Comfort Food to the Max! I also made a small cast iron skillet of Cornbread. A perfect choice to absorb that Roux! I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, as usual. Serve in a bowl, add Frank’s Red Hot Sauce if you desire, with a slice of Cornbread. For dessert later a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup.

Today’s Menu: Black and Blue Bison Burger with Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Ore Ida Griller Seasioned Potatoes

 

 

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood today! A picture perfect day, sunny, about 82 degrees with a slight cool breeze. For dinner I prepared a Black & Blue Bison Burger topped with Sauteed Mushrooms and served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun. I used Great Range Ground Bison Sirloin that I seasoned with Cajun‘s Choice Blackened Seasoning. While making the pattie I made a hole in the center about halfway through the pattie. I then filled it with Murray’s Maytag Crumbled Blue Cheese and topped it off with the Ground Bison. So as the Burger was frying the Blue Cheese was melting on the inside and Blackened on the outside. Served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun and topped off with Sauteed Mushrooms, another one that’s too good. The Burger tasted fantastic! It had that Blackened taste along with the pure taste of the Bison and the sharp taste of the Blue Cheese. For a side I had Ore Ida Griller Seasoned Potatoes. For dessert later a Pillsbury Reduced Fat Cinnamon Roll, not too bad at 130 calories and 24 carbs per serving.

 

The Great Gator Trial!

Well on this Saturday at noon I tried Gator Meat for thr first time and loved it! I had heard it tastes similar to Chicken and it does. I think the meat might be a bit tougher than Chicken but besides that it seemed pretty much the same.

I purchased the Gator on line from http://www.cajungrocer.com/ I purchased the Alligator Nuggets – BREADED 2 Pound bag. I fried the Gator in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. The breading is fantastic! Thin breading and it fries up golden brown and the seasoning is perfect on it. It’s spicy with a hint of heat but not over powering. I served it with a Boar’s Head Savory Remoulade Sauce for dipping. I’m a Gator Meat fan as of today! i also purchased some Crawfish that I’m going to fix maybe later this week. plenty of the Gator left also. The Cajun Grocer web site is loaded with great Cajun food, sides, spices and recipes. A-1 servive also along with fair shipping rates. Here at the bottom of the post I’ll leave the Cajun Grocer info along with the Gator Meat info. You got to give this a try!

However, some dishes should be thoroughly cooked, allowing the flavors to meld together over time.
