Today’s Menu: Fried Haddock w/ Roasted Petite Potatoes and Roasted Asparagus



For Breakfast this morning I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 36 degrees and partly cloudy outside today. After I had the Tea I headed to Meijer for a few items. Stopped by the Bank ATM and then by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Back home did laundry and cleaned and straightened the Pantry. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Ham and Swiss on Sour Dough Bread w/ Baked Fries.



I was at Kroger the other morning and they had some great looking Haddock Fillets so I bought a couple. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and cut the fillet into 4 pieces. So to prepare them I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. I love this Haddock it cooks up so nice and easy and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.


For one side I prepared Roasted Petite Potatoes. Another item I came across at Kroger, a Baking Tin with Tri Colored Potatoes. 12 Petite Tri- Colored Potatoes that come in a ready to bake tin baking container. The Potatoes come with Butter, Salt, Pepper, and Parsley Flakes. So all I had to do was remove the lid and bake them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Easy and delicious Potato side dish. I’ll buy more of these!




Then I also had Roasted Asparagus. I already had the oven heated for Potatoes at 400 degrees. As the Potatoes were finishing I added my Asparagus. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Garlic Salt, McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Rinse cleaned the Asparagus and cut the tough ends off of the Asparagus before Seasoning. Laid the Asparagus Spears out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. First put some Extra Light Olive Oil across the Asparagus and then my Seasonings. Placed the pan in oven and cook for approximately 8 minutes. Topped it with a sprinkle of Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese before serving. I also had a Buttered slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.






The haddock is a saltwater fish from the family Gadidae, the true cods, it is the only species in the monotypic genus Melanogrammus. – Wikipedia

How healthy is Shrimp……………….

Shrimp may have a variety of health benefits. It is high in several vitamins and minerals, and is a rich source of protein. Eating shrimp may also promote heart and brain health due to its content of omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin ( 6 , 11 , 12 , 13 ).

Buying fresh Oysters……………….

Fresh oysters shouldn’t smell fishy, and their shells should snap closed when tapped. Place oysters in a bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and stick them in the fridge. Stored properly, they’ll be OK to eat raw for about a week.

Today’s Menu: Panko Breaded Shrimp w/ Baked Potato



For Breakfast this morning I prepared Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. Topped it off with some Sargento Off the Block Cheddar Cheese and also made that morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 54 degrees and cloudy out today. Cleaned the kitchen today. Cleaned the counter tops, shelves, fridge, and microwave. Then settled in for an afternoon and evening of College Football Bowl Games. For Dinner tonight i prepared Panko Breaded Shrimp w/ Baked Potato.


While at Meijer last week I came across a bag of Meijer Panko Breaded Shrimp, first time I seen these. They come in a bag frozen, about 16-20 Shrimp per bag. They come Breaded with the Panko and ready to bake! Just preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Next I got a baking sheet and lined it with foil, lightly sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Placed the Shrimp in a single layer and baked for 16 minutes, turning the Shrimp after 8 minutes.




Removed the Shrimp from the oven and placed them on a paper towel lined plate. They baked up perfect. They were Seasoned just right and the Panko Breading was Browned and Delicious. Just the right amount of Breading, the Shrimp was nice sized. Excellent Panko Breaded Shrimp, I’ll have a bag of this handy in the freezer. Served with a side of Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.





For a side I had Baked Potatoes. Topped them with Salt, Pepper, Butter, and Light Daisy Sour Cream. I also baked a loaf of our favorite Bread, La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert/ Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels along with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.









Meijer Panko Breaded Shrimp
Crispy, crunchy flavor meets shrimp with Meijer Breaded Panko Shrimp, a must-have for meals of any size. This ready-to-cook shrimp is hand-breaded, making each bite a wonderfully tasty experience. Be the hero of your get together and serve alongside your favorite cocktail sauce for your friends and family to enjoy.

Completely dry meat before cooking……………

Whether it’s roasted chicken or seared scallops, drying them ensures you’ll get a crisp, golden skin that won’t stick to the pan. Pat them dry with paper towels or let them air-dry in the cooler for a few hours before cooking them.
