How to tell when grilled fish is done…..

The best way to tell if your fish is done is by testing it with a fork at an angle, at the thickest point, and twist gently. The fish will flake easily when it’s done and it will lose its translucent or raw appearance. A good rule of thumb is to cook the fish to an internal temperature of 140-145 degrees.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap
This chicken Caesar salad wrap recipe is elevated by the irresistible smoky flavor of grilled chicken and grilled romaine. Whisk together this easy Caesar salad dressing, toss with the grilled chicken and romaine and wrap it all together for a delicious lunch or dinner……

Grilled Shrimp Tostadas
Grilling gives these shrimp tostadas a boost of smoky flavor. Skewering the shrimp prevents them from falling through the grates while getting even char on each side. If you have a grill basket, you can throw them in that instead; just make sure to get them into a single layer so they don’t steam……

Grilled Red Snapper
This simple grilled snapper has clean flavors and a nice char flavor from the grill. It’s well seasoned but not overly spicy. Serve along with grilled veggies or a fresh green salad to make it a meal……

One of America’s Favorites – Surf and Turf MONDAY

Steak and three shrimp, served with spicy mayonnaise, side salad and fries

Surf and turf or surf ‘n’ turf is a main course combining seafood and red meat. A typical seafood component would be lobster (either lobster tail or a whole lobster, prawns, shrimp, squid or scallops, any of which could be steamed, grilled or breaded and fried. The meat is typically beef steak, although others may be used. One standard combination is lobster tail and filet mignon.

Surf and turf is typically served in steakhouses in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.

Surf and turf is sometimes referred to as Reef and beef or Reef ‘n’ Beef in Australia.
In late 19th-century America, combining large portions of lobster and steak was popular at “show restaurants known as lobster palaces”, favored by nouveau riche “arrivistes”. This became unfashionable by the 1920s, and only regained popularity in the early 1960s.

Surf ‘n’ turf was featured in 1962 at the Eye of the Needle, a revolving restaurant atop the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington.

Surf and turf is often considered to symbolize the middle-class “Continental cuisine” of the 1960s and 1970s, with (frozen) lobster and steak as replacement for the middle class.

A variation is the surf and turf burger, which is prepared with ground beef and various types of seafood, such as lobster, shrimp or crab.

Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread

Today’s Menu: Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread

 

 

Started the morning off with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The high humidity has finally moved out of our area. Sunny and 79 degrees out. I headed out early to Meijer, I needed a few items for Dinner tonight. One item I needed was Fresh Sea Scallops. I was told that Meijer was no longer carrying Fresh Scallops, only frozen. So I left there and headed for Kroger. Kroger had Fresh Sea and Bay Scallops, so I bought some of Both. Anymore Kroger is better stocked than Meijer! Back home I got the cart out and cleaned around the yard and flower beds. For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Grain Linguine w/ Sea Scallops and Baked Garlic Bread.

 

For the Linguine I used Barilla Whole Grain Linguine. To prepare it I got a medium sized pot and added water to fill just over 1/2 of it. Added Salt and brought it to a boil. When it was a rolling boil Added the Linguine. Boiled for 8 minutes and removed it from the heat and seasoned it again with a bit of Sea Salt and some dried Oregano.

 

As I said, I purchased the Sea Scallops at Kroger earlier. I washed the Scallops and had them in a Hefty Zip Bag in the fridge. As my Linguine was cooking I prepared the Scallops. The Scallops were in a plastic bag and added to a bowl. I then added a 1/4 cup of McCormick Lemon Butter Dill Sauce to the bowl and stirred until the Scallops were coated. I’ve used the Dill sauce before and really love the flavor it gives Seafood, especially good on Orange Roughy and Grouper.

 

I got a medium size skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a i/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to it, heated it on medium low heat. Removed the Scallops and shook off the excess Sauce and added them to the heated skillet. Cooked them for 2 minutes and flipped them over and cooked another 2 minutes. They came out beautiful, it was tough not to eat them coming out of the skillet!

 

To serve the Dish, in a bowl I made a bed of the just cooked Linguine. Sprinkled some Sea Salt and Grated Parmesan Cheese to the   Linguine. Then I added those Delicious Scallops to top it off! Oh what  Dish! The  Linguine was so good and the Sweet Meat taste of the Scallops, the perfect match! I had also baked a loaf of Garlic Bread, great with any meal! For Dessert/Snack later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barilla® Whole Grain Linguine

Sea Scallops
Scallops are mollusks that have two beautiful convexly ridged, or scalloped, shells. They consist of two shells hinged at one end which is why they are known to marine biologists as bi-valve mollusks. The edible portion of the scallop is the white muscle that opens and closes the two shells and is called the “nut.”

Similar to oysters and clams, scallops are filter feeding bivalves (two shells) that can be influenced by the contents of the surrounding waters. Certain plankton and the presence of scallop roe can influence the color of some scallop meats.

Why they’re healthy: Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. “One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories,” says Bowden. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium. (Clams and oysters provide

Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

Today’s Menu: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs

To start this day off I fried an Egg Sunny Side Up, heated up 3 slices of Ham, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good Breakfast for having as rough as early morning as I did. About 4:30 this morning some really painful Phantom Pains hit and continued to about 10:00 this morning. These were really painful! So I was pretty much beat for the day. 74 degrees, overcast, and humid out today. Rain moving in later this evening. After Breakfast I watered all the plants and bushes out front. Cleaned off the deck and I was done for the day. Just rested and caught up on some sleep. For Dinner tonight a favorite of mine, Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni.

 

So for the Shrimp part of the dish I used Meijer Brand Frozen Jumbo Shrimp. This is my frozen Shrimp of choice, best I’ve found. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning and a sprinkle of Morton’s Lite Salt and added the Shrimp to the skillet. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.

 

I love having Shrimp with the Pasta Roni – Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs. It comes with the Pasta Special Seasonings Packet and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box, leftovers coming tomorrow for Lunch. Nice seasoning, the Pasta is so tender, and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one easily prepared and delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.
