Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper 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! I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night. I had Phantom Pains on and off all night. I wish these things would stop, so painful. Cloudy and 65 degrees out today. So after Breakfast I went to Kroger for a few items and stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Not a lot going on this afternoon so I caught up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

 

My friends came back from Florida and me a few Grouper Fillets from Florida’s Gulf Coast! I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. I had the fillet in the freezer, laid it 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 Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble Cup – Crumbled Turkey Sausage, Egg White, and Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Passing showers and 63 degrees out today. A whole lot of flooding in the area, way too much rain! After Breakfast I went to Kroger for a couple of items and then to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. Finished a couple of things around the house then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription for Mom. Caught up on some shows I had recorded the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its a Panko Crusted Orange Roughy Fish Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I had picked up a couple of Orange Roughy Fillet at Jungle Jim’s International Market a while back and had it in the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need; the Orange Roughy Fillet, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Flour, Egg Beater’s (1/2 cup), Hungarian Paprika, and Shake and Bake Panko Bread Crumbs. I’ll also need An Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. I first Seasoned the Fillet with the McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Next I seasoned the Flour with the added Hungarian Paprika. Then rolled the Fillet in the Flour, next to the Egg Beater’s, and finally in the Panko Bread Crumbs.

 

 

 

I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated the skillet on medium heat. With the skillet heated I added my Fillet. I fried it for 3 minutes per side. It fried up perfect! Golden Brown on the outside and a moist center. I served it on the Aunt Millie’s Bun. Orange Roughy has such a good taste to it, it’s a very mild Fish. Makes the perfect Fish Sandwich!

 

 

 

 

As my Orange Roughy was cooking I turned the oven up to 425 degrees and baked my Fries. I used Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Roughy Fillet

 

Orange Roughy
The orange roughy, also known as the red roughy, slimehead and deep sea perch, is a relatively large deep-sea fish belonging to the slimehead family. The UK Marine Conservation Society has categorized orange roughy as “vulnerable to exploitation”. Wikipedia

Protein. Orange roughy and tilapia serve as a rich source of protein, although tilapia provides slightly more; tilapia has 45.5 grams per serving and orange roughy has 38.9 grams per serving. The protein in these varieties of fish is considered complete, meaning that they contain all nine essential amino acids.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Haddock w/ Mac and Cheese

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 74 degrees, rain and thunderstorms moving in toward evening. Had the other half of the outside deck painted, looks great. Went to Meijer Lawn and Garden and picked up another bag of the dark Mulch. Ran a little short of Mulch for around the tree out front. Got the front and side yards looking good! Next is the back yard flower bed and replacing some skirting around the back of the shed. For Dinner tonight I prepared Seasoned Haddock w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

Had not had Haddock in a while and it sounded good! I had purchased the Haddock from Kroger a couple of weeks ago and had them in the freezer. I sat the bag of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I had already rinsed the fillets off in cold water and cut the fillets in half before I froze them. 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 Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.

 

 

 

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Buying Seafood………..

Put seafood on ice or in the refrigerator or freezer soon after buying it. If seafood will be used within 2 days after purchase, store it in a clean refrigerator at a temperature of 40°F or below. Use a refrigerator thermometer to check! Otherwise, wrap it tightly in plastic, foil, or moisture-proof paper and store it in the freezer.

Reduce those Carbs; Keep Canned Tuna or Salmon on hand………

Canned Tuna or Salmon are great options for Lunch at work or on the run. One, it does not have to be refrigerated. You can eat it on its own, or combine with vegetable slices for a nutritious, low-carb and protein filled snack. But check cans labels for sneaky hidden ingredients and sugar in added sauces. It’s best to choose tuna in olive oil or water, and avoiding those packed with sunflower oil or canola oil. As always Eat Healthy!

Mushroom and Asparagus Fettuccine
Mushrooms add flavor and a meaty texture to this vegetarian pasta dinner. Evaporated fat-free milk makes a rich sauce that’s lower in fat than the traditional recipe so you can feel good indulging in this creamy fettuccine recipe…………..

Pan-Seared Scallops with Tomato, Olives, and Fresh Basil
This Italian-inspired dish is full of flavor. Use whole grain or multigrain fettuccine to make it a healthier option………

Fettuccine Alfredo
Alfredo di Lello, the Roman restaurateur who created his signature sauce in the 1920s, might be startled to find this streamlined version that still tastes rich enough to satisfy those deep creamy-pasta cravings. The addition of zucchini boosts the nutritional profile. And when cut into thin strands, it can be twirled gracefully on a fork…………….
