Today’s Menu: Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread

 

 

Fried Okeechobee Crappie w Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and 002
I had an early Breakfast of a couple of toasted Eggo’s Waffles. Then I had an early appointment back to the dermatologist to remove a mole that changing shape and color. First one I’ve had removed in a couple of years I think. Now the worst part waiting for biop to come back! Hopefully good results. Lot of rain today and a bit cooler out. But it looks as though Spring and warm temperatures are here for good! Did some house cleaning, vacuumed and dusted. For dinner tonight it’s Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread.

 

 

Crappie Hash Browns Corn 001
I’m down to one of my last few bags of Lake Okeechobee Crappie in the freezer. My Aunt sold her place down on Lake Okeechobee so I probably won’t be having Crappie once this batch is gone. So I laid one bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To start I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned them a bit of Sea Salt and then rolled them in Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. As always they came out Golden Brown and delicious! It’s hard to even describe how much I love eating Crappie, especially the Lake Okeechobee Crappie.

To go with the Crappie I prepared some Hash Browns, Potatoes are always perfect with Fish. As always I use Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. Then I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans, Green Beans go well with any meal as far as I’m concerned. Green Beans was my favorite Vegetable growing up even.

 

 

 

 

Cornbread
I also baked a small skillet of Martha White Cornbread. Cornbread is 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. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Scrambled Eggs and a couple of slices toasted Whole Grain Bread for Breakfast. Had to go to Kroger for a few items after Breakfast. It’s one warm December Day out there today. I heard on the morning news it was 55 at 6;00 this morning and that was going to be our low for the next three days. Cloudy but about 60 degrees out. It was warm enough I was able to get the cart out of the shed and ride around for a while this afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared one of my favorite meals, Lake Okeechobee Crappie! I prepared Fried Okeechobee Crappie w/ Hash Browns, Cut Green Beans, and Cornbread.
