Today’s Menu: Grilled Seasoned Cod w/ Roasted Corn and Whole New Potatoes

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. I needed a few things so I headed to Meijer around 10:30. It was crowded already. I noticed that more and more people are wearing their face masks again, I always wear mine. Back home I had my Garden to take care of. My Pepper and Tomato Plants have really come around since the rough weather start. Got to go running short on time. For Dinner tonight I prepared Grilled Seasoned Cod w/ Roasted Corn and Whole New Potatoes.

 

I purchased the Cod from Meijer earlier. I seasoned it with Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, and different Dried Herbs. Next I got the Grill ready. I lined the grate with foil and sprayed it with Pam Grilling Non Stick Spray. With Grill heated up I added my Cod Fillets. They only need about 2 minutes a side and done.

 

 

 

For one side I opened a can of Del Monte Whole Kernel Fire Roasted Corn Blend. Meijer finally had this in stock again today! I love Corn Blend. To prepare it I heat it up as the other Del Monte Product, small sauce pan and heat.

 

 

 

 

For another side dish I heated up a can of Del Monte Whole New Potatoes. Just heat and serve, seasoned with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley, Parsley, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Good last minute Dinner! The Cod was delicious and along with the 2 side dishes it was a very good Meal! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cod is a popular fish known for its mild flavor and dense, flaky flesh. It’s one of the most common fish used for making fish and chips.

Cod is the common name for the demersal fish genus Gadus, belonging to the family Gadidae. Cod is also used as part of the common name for a number of other fish species, and one species that belongs to genus Gadus is commonly not called cod. Wikipedia

How do make your Herb Garden grow…..

If planting in a container, fill two-thirds with peat-free compost. For growing in both pots and the ground, aim to plant the herbs a hand’s width apart. Use a trowel to dig a hole slightly larger than the herb root ball and plant your herb plant. Backfill with compost and firm around the plant, gently.

Olive Appetizer Recipes
Find healthy, delicious olive appetizer recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Marinated Olives with Lemon, Thyme and Rosemary
Marinating olives in aromatic herbs and a touch of lemon zest is an ideal way to enhance their flavor. Throughout the Mediterranean, bowls of them are routinely set out as appetizers or as a simple lunch with bread and perhaps some cheese or fruit. While a selection of olives of varying sizes, colors and cures is the most interesting, you can also simply use the one or two kinds most readily available……

Tomato-and-Olive-Stuffed Portobello Caps
Portobello caps make excellent mini casseroles. Here, they hold a tomato, cheese and olive stuffing that grills up to a smoky perfection. Serve them with whole-wheat couscous and a mixed green salad for an easy meal……

Olive Tapenade
Head to the olive bar at your grocery store to get a mix of brined and oil-cured olives for more complex flavor. Moroccan (Beldi), Kalamata, Niçoise and Castelvetrano make a nice combo……

Use those Herbs…..

A variety of herbs

Herbs have a delicate flavor, so add them in the last few minutes of cooking. Fresh herbs have a more robust flavor than dried herbs. On average, one teaspoon of dried herbs equals four teaspoons of fresh herbs. Herbs can also be used in soups, bread, mustards, salad dressings, vinegar, desserts, and drinks, in addition to beef meals.

*Culinary herbs are leafy plants that enhance the flavor and color of various dishes. They’re also high in Phyto-oestrogens, which protect your health. Herbs can often take the place of salt and oil in recipes.

Cooking with herbs…..

You can usually use either dried or fresh herbs in a recipe. Dried herbs are more potent than fresh—use 1 teaspoon of dried herb for every tablespoon of fresh (and vice versa). If you are cooking with dried herbs, add them to the dish earlier in the cooking process so they have time to release their flavor. For fresh herbs, add toward the end of the cooking process.
