For Breakfast this morning I toasted  Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cold and windy out this morning. We had a high of 42 degrees but the wind chill was in the low 30’s all day. I gathered some canned goods from the pantry and in the kitchen that we don’t need or use. I took them over to the local Food Bank and dropped them off. On the way back I stopped by my Cousin’s house for a short visit. Back home did a few chores around the house. For Dinner tonight its a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillets at Jungle Jim’s International Market last week. I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and then sliced the fillets into sandwich size slices, and had them in the freezer. I sat a fillet 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 serve it on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with the added 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 Healthy Life 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 on 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 later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 41 degrees today and partly cloudy. Above freezing, about time! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast fir Mom. A bit later I took her car to the Car Wash. I had to get all the salt and grime off of it and vacuumed the inside. For Dinner tonight Catfish Nuggets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Picked up the Catfish Nuggets at Kroger the other day and had them in the freezer. I sat them 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.

 

To go with my Catfish I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. 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! For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Fish Fry…………….

Fry your fish, two or three pieces at a time, in the hot oil until the coating is golden and fish begins to flake when tested with a fork, turning once. This takes about 3 or 4 minutes per batch. Drain the deep-fried fish on paper towels, flipping the fillets to drain both sides.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. Light Rain in the morning and cloudy in the afternoon, 47 degrees. Took my car and then Mom’s up to the Car Wash and swept both cars out. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

My last visit to Meijer I picked up a couple of Walleye Fillets. I’m Preparing one of the fillets tonight and froze the other one.

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!

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup!

Dry meat and fish with paper towels before you cook it…………..

Dry meat and fish with paper towels before you cook it no matter what. For skin to crisp, you need to get rid of as much moisture as possible, because moisture and steam kill any chance of crisping and browning. This will also prevent the meat and skin from sticking to the pan as it cooks, which is the absolute worst. Let’s Eat!

When buying Salmon………..

Look for salmon that appears moist rather than dried out, since moisture content is a great indicator of freshness and how carefully the fish was handled. 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.

Dover Sole w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Baby Carrots

Today’s Menu: Dover Sole w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Baby Carrots

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg that I served on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin, fried up 2 slices of Turkey Spam, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 33 degrees and partly sunny out today. After I ate I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Dropped that off to Mom back at the house and headed back out. I filled Mom’s car up with gas, stopped by the car wash and swept the floors and seats, then went through the Postal Drive Up Window and picked up some Stamp Booklets for her. Just feels good to get out and do a few things! For Dinner tonight I prepared Dover Sole w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Baby Carrots.

 

 

I purchased a few items from Sea to Table and had them in the freezer. I took a package of the West Coast Dover Sole and sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Sole is a flaky and mild flavored fish with a sweet flavor. As the other Sea to Table Products it comes frozen with 4 fillets per package. I’m preparing all 4 of the fillets. To make tonight’s dish I’ll need; McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Lemon Juice, and Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I washed the Fillets off in cold water. Then seasoned them with the Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Bread Crumbs and let sit for 5 minutes. Next I got a large skillet and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating up I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil. With the skillet heated I added the 2 fillets. As they started cooking I drizzled a bit of Lemon Juice across both fillets along with Dried Parsley. I cooked them for 3 minutes then flipped them over and continued cooking them for another 3 minutes, until both sides were a beautiful golden brown.

 

 

Fried up perfect, nice crust. The Sole is flaky with a light sweet taste to it. Excellent Fish, look forward to having it again soon!

 

 

 

 

 

For 1 side I prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs perfectly with Fish.

 

 

Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. I also baked a Garlic Oval Loaf Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sea to Table West Coast Dover Sole

Hand filleted, boneless, flash frozen…….

* Why We Love It: Similar to other flatfish such as fluke, Dover Sole has a sweet flavor with a flaky and delicate texture – perfect for a simple yet eye-catching plate. Unlike the European Dover Sole, West Coast Dover Sole is a member of the flounder family.
* Cooking Tip: For a classic French-inspired meal, pan sauté in a butter and caper sauce, sprinkle with parsley and serve with asparagus and roasted potatoes. Get the recipe.
* Where It’s From: Dover Sole, rated as a Best Choice by Seafood Watch, is from Astoria, Oregon, a small fishing town of about 10,000 people located at the mouth of the Columbia River just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean.
* Meet Our West Coast Dover Sole
West Coast Dover Sole (or Microstomus pacificus for our fellow fish nerds) cooks up quickly with sweet, delicate, and flaky fillets that deserve a place on your table.

What to Do
1. Defrost slow and steady. Move Dover Sole to the fridge 24 hours before you plan to cook it.

2. Season well. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any other spices included in your recipe. Pro Tip: Dover Sole is delicious coated in flour and sautéed.

3. Watch for curling. If your fish fillets are curling up in the pan, feel free to apply light pressure with a spatula.

4. Get cooking already!

Our Guarantee: We care about the fish you eat and work closely with our supply partners to provide you with the very best. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will replace or refund any item within 30 days.

Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread

 

 

To start this rainy morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Meijer Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Then topped them off with Diced Ham. I love combinations of Potatoes and Ham. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The day started off with rain but had cleared up by noon, still windy and a high of 43 degrees. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Cornbread.

 

I bought the Catfish Nuggets from Meijer a while back and had them in the freezer. I sat 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.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’m using Medium Size Red Potatoes. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Then slice each Potato into thin slices and slit each slice at least 4 times. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium 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.

 

 

 

 

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. What a meal Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Sticks with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
