Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans

 

For Breakfast I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I’ve said it before but I’m almost back to 100%. Of all the Medications and feeling a lot better. Plus I’m back to my normal sleeping. I had been having trouble getting any sleep but all good now! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Green Beans.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with the Fish I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing for dipping. I have to start having these way more often!

 

For a second side dish I prepared a can of Libby’s Shellie Beans. I had picked up a couple of cans at Meijer. I opened 1 can and added them to a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. I brought the beans to a rolling boil and reduced the heat to low until heated through. These are so good, it’s been a while since I’ve had any. Shellie Beans are Green Beans with added Pinto Beans. I also fixed Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later I’ll have a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia

Buying fresh Salmon Fillets…..

Press the fillet with your finger- the flesh should spring back, not leave your fingerprint in it. The flesh should have a bright orange-red hue with nice marbling and there shouldn’t be any low tide-type smells. Avoid salmon with any browned spots on the belly, around the edges of the fillet, or instances where the skin has started browning and curling up.

Seared Salmon with Pesto Fettuccine for Two
The brightness of basil pesto is a nice match for the buttery flavor of salmon in this quick and healthy dinner recipe. Refrigerated pesto, found near fresh sauces and salsas at most stores, is prettier and has a better taste than jarred varieties……

Salmon Potato Cakes
These crispy salmon potato cakes come together quickly when you use shortcut ingredients like canned salmon and frozen hash browns. Serve these cakes with your favorite dipping sauce or over a bed of leafy greens……

Air-Fryer Scallops
A quick and impressive dinner, scallops turn succulent and tender in the air fryer. The lemon-herb sauce is the perfect way to bring zest to each bite. Be sure to cook the scallops to temperature. They may not brown in the fryer, so don’t wait for a golden crust to tell you they’re ready……

Sausage Gumbo
To keep it simple, we’ve opted for just the essential ingredients in this rendition of the hearty Creole favorite: sausage, okra, rice and a little spice……

Grilled Creole-Style Jambalaya
Every one of the ingredients used in this grilled spin on a Louisiana favorite is awesome with some charred flavor. Even the rice gets some smokiness from grilled tomatoes, a signature in this Creole-style dish. Also known as the Holy Trinity, the combo of bell pepper, onion and celery (which here we swapped for celery seed) is used to flavor Cajun and Creole dishes like gumbo and this jambalaya. No skewers? Use a grill basket instead……

Cornmeal-Crusted Shrimp with Corn and Okra
Coating shrimp in buttermilk, hot sauce and Cajun seasoning not only gives them a tangy, spicy flavor, it also helps the cornmeal stick to form a crispy crust……

Grilled Oysters with Garlic-Herb Butter
If you’ve never cooked oysters on the grill, you’re in for a treat. Grilling oysters whole saves you the trouble of shucking them–they magically pop open when cooked. A simple garlic herb butter adds richness and a bright pop of flavor to this impressive appetizer. To pretty it up use Irish butter, which is extra-golden because Irish cows typically enjoy an all-grass diet……

Grilled Tuna Sandwich with Lemon-Chili Mayo
Sturdy “country-style” bread works best for this healthy tuna sandwich recipe with watercress and chili-mayo. Eat the tuna sandwich warm, straight off the grill, or wrap it up and pack it in a cooler for a picnic dinner. Serve with grilled bell peppers drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil and vinegar and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc……

Easy Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro Salsa Verde
Fresh cilantro, parsley, and lime juice make a tangy green salsa that adds lively flavor to this easy grilled shrimp recipe……

Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a Skillet of Cornbread

Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread

 

For Breakfast I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a slice of tasted Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. I also heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very humid outside, rain on and off, and a high of 85 degrees. Still recovering from my injuries, but feeling better. I have good days and bad, today not bad. So I thought I would finally get a Dinner Post in. Hope to be back to 100% soon. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Catfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese and a skillet of Cornbread.

 

I had purchased the Catfish Fillets from Kroger and had them in the freezer. I laid the fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor.

 

To go with my Catfish I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container, these are very hard to find anymore. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese!

 

I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. Mom loves Cornbread so I made it for her. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small Cast Iron Skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a Snapple Diet Lemonade/Tea. Take Care and Stay Safe All!
