Pass the Olive Oil……….

Instead of tossing a pat of butter into your frying pan, try a splash of extra-virgin olive oil or canola oil.

Increase your Omega-3……..

Select oils that provide omega-3 fatty acids, such as canola or flax seed oil. Also add walnuts to cereal, salads or muffins. Try walnut oil in salad dressings, too.

Add the Canola Oil…..

To saute or fry with butter, margarine, or lard, add a small amount of canola oil to raise the smoke point. This will keep the solid fat from breaking down at a higher temperature.

Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

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

 

Pnko Crusted Cod Sandwich 005
Another cloudy Spring Day here in good old West Chester! In the 60’s again, so not all bad. Well with the Spring come the Cardinals. Perhaps one of the goofiest birds I’ve ever seen. Every Spring we have to put towels over our side car mirrors. For some reason they perch on the mirrors and peck at the mirrors and the car door. Then on top of that we have to clean up their messes, I’m using the word “mess” instead of a couple other descriptive words. A neighbor of ours has the same problem, it’s always with the Cardinals and no other bird. Strange Birds indeed! For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 
To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillets off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with Sea Salt and Pnko Crusted Cod Sandwich 002Pepper. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dip the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Place fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heat canola oil in a skillet and place the fillets in and saute 3 minutes each side, or until fillets are heated through and Panko Crust has browned. Served the fillet on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 
To go with my Cod Sandwich I baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Love Potatoes and love these fries! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

 

Red Snapper  Hash Browns 002

 

Another cold but sunny day out. Made a Bob Evan’s Pork Sausage Pattie Sandwich for Breakfast this morning, first one I’ve had in quite a while. After Breakfast got a load of laundry started and then a couple of errands for Mom and back home. For dinner tonight Red Snapper! I prepared Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

Red Snapper  Hash Browns 001
Some good friends of mine just returned from Florida and brought me a few fillets of Red Snapper they caught while down there, it doesn’t get much better! I love Gulf Coast Fish, always such a fresh taste to them. To prepare them, I first rinsed the Snapper off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. Then put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Fish Fri. Then shook the bag until the Fillet was well covered, removed from the bag shaking off the excess. I then pan fried it in a Cast Iron Skillet, that I had preheated, in Canola Oil. I fried it skin side down for 4 minutes and then flipped it over to the flesh side and fried it another 3 minutes. Golden brown and nothing but delicious! The fresh taste of the Snapper combined with the Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Fish Fri is a perfect pairing.

Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

 

Crappie and Hash Browns 008

 

 

Went out this morning around 6:50 this morning to get the morning papers and it was a bit nippy out! The wind was howling, with snow flurries, and the wind chill made it feel like the mid 20’s. The high is only going up to around 40 but with the wind chill will having it feel like the 30’s. And Winter begins! Did some laundry and settled in for a day of College Football. For dinner tonight Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
I love my Fish, all Fish, but my favorite eating Fish has to be Crappie, Lake Okeechobee Crappie! But my stock of the Crappie has now ran out. Very sad when the year’s supply is gone. So I laid my last 2 bags of the Crappie out of the freezer and in to the fridge overnight to thaw. To start 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 them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie. especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie. All out of Crappie until next year!

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans

Haddock Potato Cakes 003

 
Beautiful Fall Like morning out again, 44 degrees and sunny. Warmed up to about 70, gorgeous outside! i had an early morning check-up at my new Oncologist, real nice guy and should work out great. My old Oncologist retired earlier this year. Came home did a little housework and got the cart out and enjoyed the beautiful day. For dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Haddock w/ Potato Pancakes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

Seasoned Haddock and Risotto 001
I had the fillet of Haddock in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Then sliced the fillet into smaller pieces. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Canola Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The more I have Haddock the more I like it. It’s a meaty delicious and mild tasting fish.

 

 

 

Haddock Potato Pancakes 001
For a side dish I made some Potato Pancakes. I used 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). I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
