Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin, heated up a slice of Turkey Spam, and had a half slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar Cheese to make a Breakfast Sandwich. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 80 degrees and partly cloudy to start the day, later a passing thunderstorm. Spent most of the day helping Mom clean out our junk closet. Amazing the stuff she had in it! We filled up 4 large Lawn Hefty Bags. Long overdue! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

I had purchased the Tilapia at Kroger and had them in the freezer. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and blackened flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. Served it on a Kroger Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun.

For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Tilapia……………
Tilapia is a pretty impressive source of protein. In 3.5 ounces (100 grams), it packs 26 grams of protein and only 128 calories (3). Even more impressive is the amount of vitamins and minerals in this fish. Tilapia is rich in niacin, vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium and potassium.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning

This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.
Ingredients:
SALT, PAPRIKA, CAYENNE PEPPER, BLACK PEPPER, WHITE PEPPER, CHILI POWDER, MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE, ONION, GARLIC, SPICES.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A repeat of weather outside, 88 degrees, humid and rain showers. I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Spraying your grill with a bit of vegetable oil before you start grilling will make cleaning even easier, and your grill even hotter (which will put those cool “grill marks” on your meat and vegetables). For the easiest clean-up, coat the grill with vegetable oil or canola oil before starting the fire, then wipe it with a wet rag shortly after you are through. Never spray the oil on the grill after the fire has started-it may cause a flare-up.

Hint #1 – Memorial Day weekend has passed but you still need to make sure your outdoor grill is prepared for the rest of your Summer grilling. Clean the grates by placing them in the tub and covering them with very hot water and one cup each ammonia and dishwasher detergent. Cover with old fabric softener sheets and soak overnight. The next day, don your rubber gloves, scrub away, and watch the grease dissolve.

 

 
Hint #2 – Another great way to clean your barbecue grill is with wet newspaper. After cooking, just place it on a warm grill for one hour with the lid closed. You’ll be amazed how easily the grime comes off.
