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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning it was Gravy, Toast, and Sausage. I made the gravy using a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy. As that cooking I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. One Comfort Food Breakfast to start morning off. After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items and then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Finished a couple of things around the house then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription and some stamps. Caught up on some shows I had recorded the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillet at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier in the week. I sliced the Fillet in 1/2, rinsed them in cold water, and put them in Hefty Plastic Freezer Bags and froze them. So I put 1 of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need; the Orange Roughy Fillet, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Flour, Egg Beater’s (1/2 cup), Hungarian Paprika, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’ll also need An Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with Hungarian Paprika. Then rolled the Fillet in the Flour, next to the Egg Beater’s, and finally in the Panko Bread Crumbs.

 

 

 

 

I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added my Fillet. I fried it for 3 minutes per side. It fried up perfect! Golden Brown on the outside and a moist center. I served it on the Aunt Millie’s Bun. Orange Roughy has such a good taste to it, it’s a very mild Fish. Makes the perfect Fish Sandwich!

 

 

 

 

 

 


As my Orange Roughy was cooking I turned the oven up to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Roughy Fillet

Orange Roughy
The orange roughy, also known as the red roughy, slimehead and deep sea perch, is a relatively large deep-sea fish belonging to the slimehead family. The UK Marine Conservation Society has categorized orange roughy as “vulnerable to exploitation”. Wikipedia

Protein. Orange roughy and tilapia serve as a rich source of protein, although tilapia provides slightly more; tilapia has 45.5 grams per serving and orange roughy has 38.9 grams per serving. The protein in these varieties of fish is considered complete, meaning that they contain all nine essential amino acids.

Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. 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. Snow Flurries and 24 degrees this morning with rain showers and 41 degrees out for the afternoon. Gave Mom a hand in doing a couple of loads of laundry. Then I went to Walmart to pick up a couple of boxes of small Christmas Lights later in the day. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread.

 

 

 

 

 

I had purchased some Catfish Nuggets from Kroger yesterday. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

 

 

 


For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

 

 

 

 


With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 


I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What better side for Fried Catfish, Fried Potatoes, and Green Beans than Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish

Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

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

 

 

Well Mom is feeling a lot better today! She’s still not 100%, just take time. I prepared Breakfast for us this morning, no Mom didn’t have McDonald’s! I prepared some Smthfield Sliced Ham, Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Fried Eggs, and Toast. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice morning around 40 degrees, and we seen the Sun for a while! Later Rain and strong winds moved in. We had gusts of 40-50 miles per hour. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then spent the afternoon watching NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared Panko-Crusted Fish Sandwich and Baked Fries

 

 

 

 

I had went to Kroger yesterday and I picked up a couple North Atlantic Cod Fillets that were on sale. Washed them off in cold water and sliced them into Sandwich size Fillets. I kept one out for my Sandwich and froze the rest.

 

 

 

 

 

 


To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillet off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder. Then pressed both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dipped the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Placed the fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and placed the fillets in and cooked 3 minutes each side. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. I love making Fish Sandwiches with Cod and the Panko Bread Crumbs. Cod cooks up great no matter how you prepare it. Plus it’s a very meaty Fish which makes for one excellent Fish Sandwich.

 

 

 


For my Fries I’m using my favorite, Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. It’s an easy prepared but hot and filling meal. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich

Ingredients:

(4) 4oz. Cod Fillets
1c. Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1/2 c. Egg Beater’s
1/2 c. Flour
1 Tbs. Light Olive Oil

Directions:

* Rinse fillets and pat dry the fillets and season with Sea Salt and Pepper.

Today’s Menu: Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/ Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole and Cut Green Beans

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast on morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, topped them with some cooked diced Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar, and finally a Sunnyside Up Fried Egg. I also had a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After I had Breakfast and did the dishes I then went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. She’s feeling a little better this morning. Her throat isn’t sore and she’s not as congested. So far so good for me, still no signs of me catching it. Our next door neighbors both have it also. Gave the Kitchen a good cleaning after Lunch; cleaned the stove, fridge, counters, and microwave. For Dinner tonight it’s Red Snapper. I prepared a Herb-Crusted Red Snapper w/Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole and Cut Green Beans.

 

 


I purchased a beautiful Red Snapper Fillet while at Kroger yesterday. I’ll be preparing it by a recipe I found on the Taste of Home website, Herb-Crusted Red Snapper. This is the 3rd time I’ve had Snapper using this recipe. I’ll need the following; 1 tablespoon Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 1 teaspoon Dried Basil, 1 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Fennel Seeds, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano, 1/4 teaspoon Pepper, 1/4 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, 1 Red Snapper fillets, and 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil. I only had 1 fillet of the Red Snapper, the original recipe and ingredient amounts are for 2 fillets. I only used 1/2 of amount of the above ingredients.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it was very easy. To start; In a bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; and mix until finely ground Dip fillets in herb mixture, coating both sides. Then in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat, cook the fillet in Extra Light Olive Oil for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. So easy and quick to prepare this. The crust was excellent and provided great flavor while the Snapper remained moist. I just love all Seafood and Fish!

 

 

 

 

For one side I prepared some Idahoan Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes. I love all the Idahoan products and this one no different. As the others its baked in a casserole dish. To make the dish I’ll need 1 box of the Idahoan Premium Steakhouse Cheesy Hashbrown Potatoes, 2 Tbsp Blue Bonnet Light Butter, 1 3/4 cups boiling water, and 1/2 cup 2% Milk.

 

 

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven on 450°F . Then in a 1 1/2 qt casserole dish, combine potatoes, contents of sauce pouch, 2 Tbsp butter, and 1 3/4 cups boiling water. Add the 1/2 cup milk and stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 450°F for 25 minutes. Sprinkle crunchy onion topping on top of potatoes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Well seasoned and Cheesy, excellent side!

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Red Snapper

Catfish Nuggets w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Savory Herb Potatoes and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Savory Herb Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. I had a real rough night dealing with Phantom Pains. I didn’t get an hours worth of sleep. They finally let up around 10:00 this morning. I’m really exhausted, these were the worst I’ve had in a while. I just wish someone would come up with a cure for Phantom Pains! Anyway after Lunch I went back to bed for most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Savory Herb Potatoes and Savory Herb Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger the other day and had them in the freezer. Layed the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty. You can bake Catfish but for me you just can’t beat frying Catfish.

 


For one side dish I prepared the Little Potato Co. Savory Herb Potatoes. We love these! The Potatoes come in a microwavable tray. Just pop the tray in the microwave for five minutes and mix in the seasoning pack and you have a nutritious and tasty Potato Dish. These are definitely a good item to have in the pantry! So easy to prepare and no clean up.

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a large can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I also Baked a Loaf of Garlic Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.
