Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

 

It’s a special day today, My Dad would have been 98 today! We miss you and love you Dad.
To start this Friday morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble – Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and make a good Breakfast. Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per cup! Sunny and 85 degrees out today, with a high pollen and mold count! So I wasn’t outside a whole lot today with my allergies as they are. Got the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Not a whole lot going on today. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

 

I was out of the Gulf Coast Grouper until my friends got back from Florida a couple of days ago. They dropped off a couple of bags of Grouper they had caught a few days ago from the Gulf Coast. I had the fillets in the freezer, laid a fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. I rinsed the Grouper in cold water and dried it on a paper towel. To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillet was well coated. Shook off the excess off. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful.

 

 

 

As my Grouper was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango/Tea to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Today’s Menu: Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 


For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well I finally found a good and reliable Carpet place. They are coming over for the measurements for my bedroom and the bath room. Sunny and 88 degrees, and low humidity! Did a few things around the yard. After Lunch I went to Walmart, we needed a new Water Hose. Back home I took a spin around the neighborhood and enjoyed the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fish Sandwich Fillet Sandwich w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

 


I used Van De Kamps – Fish Sandwich Fillets for my Fish. Very easy to prepare. Removed the Fish from the plastic pouch. Heated the oven at 425 degrees. Placed the Frozen Fish Fillets in a single layer evenly on a baking sheet. Place the pan on the oven rack. Bake uncovered 21 minutes. I turned the Fish Fillets over halfway through baking.

 

 

 

 

 


These turned out perfect! Golden Brown and nice Flavor to them. I topped the Fish with a slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I also baked some Ore Ida Tater Tots as I was baking the Fish. Just baked at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots and Johnny Cakes

 

 

To start the day off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Then I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Same weather outside! Passing thunder storms, humid, and 80 degrees. We’ve had so much rain in this are, like a lot of country. There’s flooding throughout our area. Friday is supposed to be sunny and clear, hope they are right! For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots and Johnny Cakes.

 

 

 

 

 

I purchased the Grouper while at Jungle Jim’s International Market. They had them on sale and I just couldn’t resist from buying 3 fillets. I have a couple of the Gulf Coast Groupers in the freezer but I can’t walk away from a sale!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I rinsed the Grouper in cold water and dried it on a paper towel. I then sliced the Grouper into smaller pieces. To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillet was well coated. Shook off the excess off. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful.

 

 

 

 

As my Grouper was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

 

 

 

 


I also made a batch of Johnny Cakes. Sort of last minute add on, Mom wanted some. To prepare the Johnny Cakes (I love these…) all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. The Cornbread works perfect with Chili! I had a Diet Peach Snapple to go with my Dinner. I took some of the Johnny Cakes and 3 Bean Turkey Chili over to Dad at the rehab center, which he loved. For Dessert/Snack tonight a bowl of Skinny – Pop Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Lemon Pepper and Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

To start this Friday morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble – Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and make a good Breakfast. Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per cup! The same weather outside again. Passing rain and thunderstorms, humid, and 79 degrees. Had to go to the local Kroger to pick up a couple of items and a prescription for Mom. Cleaned the Kitchen and then took it easy for the afternoon. I’m still dealing with my allergies, everyone around here is suffering! For Dinner tonight Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

I came across the recipe on the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website, CUMIN-CRUSTED FISH FILLET WITH LEMON. I’ll be using Walleye as my Fish of Choice. Then for Seasoning I’ll need; Ground Cumin, Thyme, Paprika, Lemon Pepper, and Parsley. I left the original recipe and it’s web link at the end of the post. But after thinking about it I’m going to use Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I did add a bit of Ground Cumin to the Breading Mix. I’m all for making Cooking easier while keeping the flavors and taste. I had the Walleye in the freezer in a plastic Hefty Bag. Laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it, in a pie pan I added the Zatarain Mix. Rubbed the mix on both sides of fillets.

 

 

 

Then in a large skillet, set over medium heat, heat Extra Light Olive Oil. Add the Walleye and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Sprinkled with parsley and done! Love all the Zatarain’s Mixes on Fish and Seafood!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Walleye, as it was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots

 

 

For Breakfast I had a bowl of Cherrio’s along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I headed to the local Kroger up the road. Needed a few things for tonight’s Dinner. Usually when I go early to Kroger there’s hardly anyone there. But not today, I forgot it was Valentine’s Day! I was luck to find a handicap parking space, someone happened to be pulling out and they left their electric cart ou also. Kroger made a fortune on Cars, Flowers, and Candy sales! I got what I needed and headed back home. I’m glad I did go early though as it started pouring the rain as I got back home. Not much else going on today. I did put a Pork Loin Roast in the Crock Pot and let it cook on low for 7 hours for tomorrow’s Dinner. For my Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon Double Cheddar Chicken Sandwich w/ Tater Tots.

 

I purchased a package of Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts at Kroger. I’ll also need the following to make the Dish; al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, Boar’s Head Deli Sliced Yellow Cheddar and White Cheddar Cheese, Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, Lettuce, and Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns.

 

 

 

 

I first fried the al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. I started by grabbing a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. This Bacon fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

 

Next I fried the Thin Cut Chicken Breasts. I’m using the Tyson Thin Cut Boneless Chicken Breasts. I got a large skillet that I sprayed with pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I then heated the skillet on medium heat. I seasoned the Chicken with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Pepper. Then rolled the Chicken in seasoned Flour. I had seasoned the Flour with Ground Smoked Paprika. With the skillet heated I added the Chicken. I fried it 2 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes and flipped it back again. Cooked it until the Chicken had an internal temperature of 165°. Cooked it a total of 15 minutes. With about 1 minute or so of cooking time left I topped the Chicken Breasts with a slice of Yellow and slice of White Cheddar Cheese. The Chicken came out perfect. Nice browning on the outside moist and juicy inside, and the Cheese melted beautifully!

 

As my Chicken was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Tater Tots.I used Ore Ida Golden Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup.

 

 

 

 

 


As the Tater Tots were finishing up I made my Sandwich. I got the Mini Sub Buns and took the bottom half and put Lettuce down, added the Chicken Breast, topped that with the Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce, the Bacon, and the top half of the Sub Bun. Quite a sandwich! I’ll have to start having this more often! With the Tater Tots it came out one delicious Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple.

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Tater Tots

 

Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w Tater Tots 003
Started my morning off with a Egg Beater’s Egg White Scrambled, a slice of Boar’s Head Black Forest Ham, served on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. A lot colder out there today, it was 33 degrees this morning and one cold wind blowing. The day didn’t warm up much, sunny and a high in the 30’s. Gave Mom a hand cleaning out their bedroom walk-in closet, a lot of clothes headed to Good Will. After that it was house cleaning time, dusted and vacuumed. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Cod Fish Sandwich w/ Tater Tots.

 

 
I had purchased the Cod from Kroger and had it in the freezer. I laid 2 small fillets in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the Cod I rinsed the fillets off with cold water and patted dry. Then seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Panko Cod Sandwich 001Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Combined the flour and both Garlic Powder and Onion powder then press both sides of fillet into flour for a light dusting , shaking off any excess flour. Dip the floured fillets into the Paprika seasoned Egg Beater’s, allowing excess to drip off. Place fillets, one at a time, in Panko Bread Crumbs, and lightly toss fillets until both sides are covered. Meanwhile, heated the Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a skillet and place the fillets in and saute 3 minutes each side, or until fillets are heated through and Panko Crust has browned. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

Fish Sandwich w Baked Tater Tots 001
Then to go with the Fish Sandwich I prepared some Tater Tots. Love those Tater Tots and I always use Ore Ida Mini Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! I baked these at the same time I baked my Gorton’s Fish Fillet, 1 pan and easy clean up. The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Fish and Potatoes, a perfect pairing. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
