Today’s Menu: Fish Sticks, Maryland Style Crab Cakes, and Steak Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. My favorite Breakfast anymore! Not a bad day outside, 28 in the morning and 38 degrees for a high. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger up the road for a couple of items and the stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. After Lunch I went over to a friend of mine that was in town, he was staying with his brother. Good seeing him, we’ve been friends since our Freshmen year in High School. For Dinner tonight it’s Seafood and Potatoes. I prepared Fish Sticks, Maryland Style Crab Cakes, and Steak Fries.

 

For the Fish Sticks I used Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks. Growing up I lived on Fish Sticks. While I was at Meijer the other day I picked up a package of the Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks. These are coated with Panko Bread Crumbs and to prepare them I’ll be baking them. I first preheated the oven at 375 degrees. I then took a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray and lined the Fish Sticks up on the sheet. Then baked them for 22 minutes, flipping them over after 11 minutes.

 

 

They came out piping hot, nice crunch from the Panko Bread Crumb Coating and nicely Seasoned. I really like all the Gorton’s Seafood Products. Easy to prepare and good quality Seafood. Served them with a side of McCormick Tarter Sauce.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for the Crab Cakes I used SeaPak Maryland Style Crab Cakes, first time using these. Another item I picked up at Meijer the other day. They come frozen to a box, individually vacuumed sealed.

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare these I preheated the oven to 425°f. Removed the frozen crab cakes from vacuum-pack and arranged on a baking sheet, flat side down. I then brushed them with melted Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Baked for 15 minutes on middle oven rack. Turned the Crab Cakes over and press gently to flatten them. Continued to bake for another 10 minutes. Let them cool for 3 minutes and ready to eat! I served these with an Aioli Sauce that came with the Crab Cakes, excellent Sauce! Very good Crab Cakes, lots of Crab Meat and great Seasoning. Another good item to have in the freezer.

 

 

 

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries and had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping.Also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Healthy Fish and Seafood Recipes
Find healthy, delicious fish and seafood recipes including crab, salmon, shrimp and tuna. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

 

Honey-Soy Broiled Salmon
A sweet, tangy and salty mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar and honey does double-duty as marinade and sauce. Toasted sesame seeds provide a nutty and attractive accent. Make it a meal: Serve with brown rice and sautéed red peppers and zucchini slices…….

 

Paprika Shrimp and Green Bean Saute
Green beans add snap and color to the garlicky shrimp and butter beans in this Spanish-inspired sauté. Slightly pricier prepeeled shrimp are worth it, given the amount of time they save on a harried weeknight. Serve with quinoa or brown rice…….

 

Crab Cake Burgers
These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn’t masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces……..

Healthy 4th of July Dinner Recipes

Find healthy, delicious 4th of July dinner recipes including hamburgers, BBQ chicken, fajitas and kabobs. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

 

Barbecue Pulled Chicken
This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is a fanciful reinterpretation of pulled pork that slow-cooks chicken in lots of tangy tomato sauce. Have sliced jalapenos, sliced red onions and some sour cream on hand to top this barbecue pulled chicken, which makes a hearty main course. You can turn it into an unbelievable sandwich or serve it on mashed potatoes or even whole-grain spaghetti. Serve with shredded napa cabbage tossed with low-fat mayonnaise, cider vinegar, celery seed and honey to taste……

 

Crab Cake Burgers
These burgers have a true crab flavor that isn’t masked by fillers or strong seasoning. Serve on a bun with tartar sauce or with a lemon-juice-dressed salad of greens, sprouts and sliced peaches. This recipe works best with convenient pasteurized crabmeat, usually found in the refrigerated case near the fish counter. If you prefer lump crabmeat, cut it into small, uniform pieces…….

 

Grilled Fish Tacos
Instead of deep-frying the fish for these fish tacos, we coat the fish with a flavor-packed chile rub and grill it instead. Make sure the fillets are no more than ½ to ¾ inch thick so they cook quickly. Sometimes flipping fish on the grill can be tricky since the fish can stick to the grill or fall apart. The solution is to invest in a grill basket that easily holds 4 to 6 fish fillets and secures the fish in the basket for easy flipping. If you don’t have a grilling basket, make sure the grill is hot and well oiled before adding the fish……..

Today’s Menu: Surf and Turf – Crab Cake and Bison Strip Loin Steak w/ Baked Fries

 

Surf and Turf - Crab Cake and Bison Strip Loin Steak w Baked Fri 009
It’s a warm Summer’s day out there today. Lots of sunshine and a high around 86 degrees. I broke out the Glier’s Turkey Goetta for Breakfast! I love Goetta, the aroma of it when your frying it just makes your mouth water! I also prepared a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After that my morning workout and a shower. Both Mom and Dad went to Church so I spent the day cleaning inside and out today. Had a few spots I had to scrub on the hard wood floor also. After everything was done I got the Cart out for a bit to enjoy the rest of the day. For dinner tonight it’s Surf and Turf! I prepared Crab Cake and Bison Strip Loin Steak w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I’ve prepared Surf and Turf a few times but never with these 2 items, first time trying them both. I normally use WildSurf and Turf - Crab Cake and Bison Strip Loin Steak w Baked Fri 002 Idea Buffalo but while at Kroger last week I noticed they had Bison items by Simple Truth so I thought I would give them a try. I had the Simple Truth Bison Strip Loin Steak in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I put a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on it. I then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. i pan fried it in a medium skillet, sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. I cooked it about 4 minutes per side, for medium rare. The Bison came out moist and very tender. It doesn’t have the same somewhat sweet taste that the Wild Idea Buffalo does but it’s a very good Bison Steak!

 

 
Then for the Crab Cakes I used Dockside Classics Premium Crab Cakes. I purchased the box of these at Kroger also, Surf and Turf - Crab Cake and Bison Strip Loin Steak w Baked Fri 001and first time trying them. They come 4 to a box. To prepare them preheat the oven on 400 degrees. Remove them from the package and place them on a cookie sheet. Then I baked them for 16 minutes. Remove them from the oven and let cool for 3 minutes and served. Not real big Cakes but meaty, well seasoned, and a very good crab Cake. It comes with a small container of Cocktail Sauce. 150 calories and 7 carbs per Crab Cake. I also baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Crab Cake Slider w/ Baked Fries

 

Crab Cake Slider 005

Winter is here, I’m here to tell you! Went out to get the morning papers and it was 21 degrees with a wind chill of 15 degrees! Oh where are those beautiful sunny days of Fall. Still no snow but they say there’s a chance overnight and Sunday to get some. Snow is no fun if your an amputee like myself, makes it a bit rough! Stopped by Kroger to pick up a few items for Mom and myself and back home for the day. For dinner tonight another favorite, Crab Cake Slider w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

Crab Cake Sliders Fries 006

I’m using Kroger Private Selection Maryland Style Crab Cakes. They come frozen and there’s 2 to a box. To prepare them just preheat the oven on 400 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Nothing beats a fresh made Crab Cake, but these are too good to be frozen! They’re just the right size, about 3.5 ounces each, and full of flavor and meaty. Baked them for about 30 minutes and they were done. Served then on a Pepperidge Farm Wheat Slider Buns. Topped them with Louisiana Remoulade Dressing and Boston Bibb Lettuce. This makes one delicious Slider! The taste of the Crab Meat and Remoulade Sauce,if you want one flavorful Remoulade Sauce you have to try the LOUISIANA Remoulade Dressing. This sauce is incredible and is good on about anything you put it on!

 

 

 

 
Then I also prepared one of my favorite sides, Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries. Love these Fries, they’re 130 calories and 20 carbs per serving. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

 

 

 

 

LOUISIANA Remoulade Dressing

LOUISIANA Remoulade Dressing

 

 

LOUISIANA Remoulade Dressing is typically a cold dressing served with chilled boiled seafood. This dressing combines the perfect blend of soybean oil, horseradish, egg yolks, tomato paste, onion, garlic and other spices. Use it as a dipping sauce for your favorite seafoods or meats.

Today’s Menu: Surf and Turf and Baked Potato

 

 

 

Surf and Turf Baked Potato 007
Another cool and rainy morning, about 43 degrees this morning. Finally cleared up and the sun came out in the late afternoon though. Went to the bank, mailed a few letters, and stopped by Kroger to pick up a few items for my Mom and myself. For dinner tonight it’s a Surf and Turf and Baked Potato!

 

 

 

The Surf part is Crab Cakes. I used Kroger Private Selection Maryland Style Crab Cakes. They come frozen and there’s 2 to box. To prepare them just preheat the oven on 400 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Nothing beats a fresh made Crab Cake, but these are real good to be frozen! They’re  just the right size, about 3.5 ounces each, and full of flavor. Served it with some Louisiana Remoulade Dressing for dipping. I’ll be keeping a box or two of these in the freezer.

 

 

 
Then for the Turf part I prepared a Wild idea Buffalo 5 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin. My favorite meat, Buffalo! I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side, medium rare. Absolutely love these Steaks! I also a Baked Potato that i seasoned with the McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Black Peppercorn and topped with i Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.
