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.

Today’s Menu: Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a high of 38 degrees and cloudy out today. Not a thing to do today which is a good thing, I had the Phantom Pains all night again. They started last night around 11:00 and didn’t ease up until almost noon today! So as usual when these last this long, it’s a day of rest. So for Dinner tonight I prepared Creole Seasoned Baked Salmon Pieces w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I had a small package of Salmon Bites or Pieces in the freezer that I had purchased from Meijer. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up. I laid the package of Salmon in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make the Salmon I’ll need; the Salmon Pieces, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning.

 

To prepare it; I first preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. I seasoned the Salmon Fillet with 1/2 tablespoon of the Extra Light Olive Oil, Grinder Sea Salt and Creole Seasoning. I put the Fillet in the pan; skin side down. Baked it for 13 minutes; until done and fork flaky. The Salmon came out perfect! Done just right with excellent seasoning.

 

To go with my Salmon 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/Snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and heated up some Kroger Diced Ham. I made a bed of the Hash Browns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I heated up the Ham and put it over top the Hash Browns. One of my favorite Breakfast Dishes. Sunny and 53 degrees, very windy out. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Got the cart out of the shed after Lunch. We had some very strong winds yesterday and had leaves, tree branches, and blown trash all the yard. Everyone’s yard was a mess. So clean up took most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

I purchased the fresh Atlantic Salmon from the Kroger Seafood Department. I had it in the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I’m going to prepare it using the Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon recipe. I haven’t had Salmon or used this recipe in a while. To make I’ll need; Salmon Fillets (4 ounces each), 4 teaspoons Dijon Mustard, 4 teaspoons Honey, 2 slices Whole Grain Bread (torn into pieces), 3 tablespoons finely chopped Walnuts, 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme. To prepare it; Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Place the Salmon on a baking sheet coated with Pam cooking spray. Mix the Mustard and Honey; brush over the Salmon. Next I placed the Bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in Walnuts, Olive Oil and Thyme; press it onto the Salmon Fillet.

 

Bake 12-15 minutes or topping is lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. The Salmon came out perfect, moist and delicious. The Walnut Crust is perfect for the Salmon. The Walnuts, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Thyme, and fresh Bread Crumbs all combine perfectly. Love this recipe.

 

I also 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 with Fish perfect. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese

 

 

 

Just a cup of Biglow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 70 degrees and sunny out today, beautiful Fall Day out there! I had to pick a Pick and Click order up at Kroger at 10:40. After Lunch I got the cart and rake out and raked some leaves in the backyard, and there were plenty of them! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Baked Mac and Cheese.

 

To make the Salmon Patties I used Kroger Low Fat Saltine Wheat Crackers, 10 Crackers. By using these Crackers instead of a regular Saltine Cracker, such as Zesta Saltine Crackers, I saved on Fat, Calories, Carbs, and Sodium. Also instead of 1 Egg I used a 1/4 cup of Egg Beater’s. Make cuts where you can, it all adds up! I’m also using a can of Kroger Brand Pink Salmon, Old Bay Seasoning, and Dried Parsley.

 

In a large bowl I mixed all the ingredients until it well mixed and thickened up. Made the mixture into patties and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

For the Mac and Cheese I used Reser’s Main Street Bistro Signature Macaroni and Cheese. We have used several of their sides now and trying the Mac and Cheese tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll be baking it, you can also microwave it. I prefer baking items in the oven. First preheat the oven to 350°F. Next I removed the tray from the package and removed the film. I placed the  container on baking tray and heated it in the oven for 22 minutes. Nice and bubbly around the edges. Let it cool a bit and it’s ready! The Mac and Cheese is delicious! Fantastic Elbow Macaroni with plenty of Cheese, seasoned just right! Excellent Salmon Patty and Baked Mac and Cheese Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Canned Salmon

Both canned and fresh fish are a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and one isn’t necessarily healthier than the other. … In fact, a USDA study found slightly higher levels of two omega-3s in canned pink and red salmon than it found in fresh. Canned salmon has other merits, too. Canned salmon is also rich in protein, vitamin D, calcium (from the bones) and healthy omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats are heart healthy fats. They also promote healthy brain development in babies.

I had no clue on Dinner tonight! Then while at Meijer I came across of Salmon Bites or Pieces. It was a small package of just odd and end pieces of Salmon they had leftover and they packaged them up.

Salmon Sliders with Tangy Mustard Slaw
The deep purple of the cabbage slaw would be enough to liven up these salmon sliders, but we add even more color with a simple carrot and cucumber side salad…………………………..

Seared Scallops with White Bean Ragu and Charred Lemon
This recipe for seared scallops with white beans and spinach turns out a healthy dinner that looks impressive (and tastes great) in just 25 minutes. Giving lemons a quick sizzle in the skillet amps up the flavor of this piccata-inspired dish. The heat helps release even more citrus juice and sweetens it too. When shopping for scallops, look for ones labeled “dry.” Some scallops are soaked in a solution that prevents them from searing properly and can give them a soapy flavor………………………

Peppery Barbecue-Glazed Shrimp with Vegetables and Orzo
In this healthy BBQ shrimp recipe, shrimp are seasoned with a peppery spice blend and served with zucchini, peppers and whole-grain orzo for a delicious and easy dinner that’s ready in just 30 minutes. The shrimp and veggies are cooked in the same skillet, so cleanup is a snap too……………………..

Buying and Storing Fresh Salmon Hints………………………

A whole salmon should have plump, clear, shiny eyes. The skin should be shiny and moist, and if filleted, the meat should be plump without wrinkles and look firm. If the eyes are dried out and the flesh looks cracked, mushy, or dried,,,, move on. If it looks good, before they wrap it up in paper, ask to smell it.

Proper storage is key to maintaining freshness. Salmon can be kept for up to two days in the refrigerator. Remove the salmon from its wrappings, rinse thoroughly with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Wrap the fish tightly in a layer of plastic wrap, followed by another layer of aluminum foil.
