Today’s Menu: Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Then I heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and a high of 49 degrees out. After Breakfast headed out to Mernard’s. They had a few things on sale this week we needed around and for outside the house. Waiting for it to dry out around here, getting behind on some outside work that needs to be done. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Rockfish Fillets w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

Last time I was at Meijer I purchased 2 Rockfish Fillets. Ocean Rockfish tastes similar to Snapper. The Fillets cost less than 1/2 than what you pay for Snapper. So I picked up a couple of Fillets washed them off in cold water, cut the fillets in half, and stored them in a hefty plastic bag and had them in the freezer. I laid 1 of the bags out in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll be cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet and will need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley along with Zatarain’s Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

Seasoned on both sides with Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri Mix. Seasoned on both sides with Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Then rolled the Fillets in the Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fri Mix. Next heated a Cast-Iron Skillet over high heat. As the Pan is heating I added the Extra Light Olive Oil. When the skillet was heated I placed the fillets in the pan, skin side down. Press down gently on the fillets with a spatula for about 20 seconds to prevent curling. Lowered the heat to medium and let cook until the fish is golden and caramelized around edges, about 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully flip fillets and until golden all over and cooked through, 45 to 90 seconds more.

 


The Rockfish fried up to a perfect Golden Brown. It does have a taste similar to Snapper. Really a delicious meaty version of Snapper, and costs a lot less! Really enjoyed it and Mom, who isn’t a huge Fish Lover, really likes them.

 

 

 

 


To go with the Rockfish I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I love Mac and Cheese with Fish. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

Rockfish – Sebastes

Sebastes is a genus of fish in the family Sebastidae (though some include this in Scorpaenidae), most of which have the common name of rockfish. A few are called ocean perch, sea perch or redfish instead. Most of the Sebastes species live in the north Pacific, although two (Sebastes capensis and Sebastes oculatus) live in the south Pacific/Atlantic and four (Sebastes fasciatus, Sebastes mentella, Sebastes norvegicus and Sebastes viviparus) live in the north Atlantic. The coast off South California is the area of highest rockfish diversity, with 56 species living in the Southern California Bight.

Rockfish are an important sport and commercial fish, and many species have been overfished. As a result, seasons are tightly controlled in many areas. Sebastes are sometimes fraudulently substituted for the more expensive northern red snapper.

Rockfish has a sweet, mild flavor, with a flaky, medium-firm texture. It is best baked, sautéed, broiled or poached. Since the flesh tends to flake easily, it is not the best fish for grilling. Try it with a little lemon to bring out the sweet flavor without overpowering.

Today’s Menu: Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

To start the day off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bowl and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Sunny and 48 degrees for a high today, plus a lot less windy! Caught up on most everything. I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom and that was about it. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the wooden deck and around the driveway are. Still a bit brisk outside. Watched some College Basketball afterward. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I’m having Shrimp for the second day in a row, I could eat Shrimp and Seafood every day! While at Kroger yesterday I picked up some of the huge Freshwater Colossal Shrimp, I cleaned them and put them in the fridge until needed for Dinner tonight. I love these, they are so meaty. They don’t have that Ocean taste like Ocean Shrimp but they’re not bad. To prepare these I’m using McCormick Golden Dipt Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix.

 

 

 

Poured about 1 inch of Extra Light Olive Oil into large skillet. Heated the oil to 350°F on medium heat. I then took a 1/2 cup of the Cracker Meal Mix in a Hefty Zip Lock Plastic Bag. Take the peeled shrimp, 3 at a time and place them in the bag and shake until Shrimp had a nice coating on them. Had all the Shrimp coated I then began to fry them. Frying them about 3 minutes the shrimp, a few pieces at a time, in the hot oil until light golden brown turning after 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towel lined plate . Love using the McCormick Cracker Meal Mix, nice light crust and seasoning.

 

 

To go with the Shrimp I prepared some Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I baked a loaf of La Brea Bakery Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate

To start my morning off I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. It snowed overnight and into the morning here. We ended up with over 3 inches. So not much going on outside today. And not going on inside. I was caught up on everything so it a was layed back day today. For Dinner tonight it’s Fried Freshwater Shrimp w/ Mac and Cheese.

McCormick Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix

Cracker Meal Seafood Fry Mix adds extra crunchiness to fried and baked foods. All ingredients have been specially selected to provide a superior coating that seals in natural juices for fish, seafood, poultry, meats and vegetables.

Ingredients
Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, And Folic Acid), Whey (Milk), Dextrose, And Soybean Oil.

Serving size
1/4 cup Mix (32g)
All You Need
1/2 cup Cracker Meal
1 lb. Fish or Seafood*
Water or Milk
Vegetable Oil
Directions
1. POUR Cracker Meal into shallow dish or large plastic bag. Moisten fish, cut into serving-size pieces, or seafood with water or milk. Shake off excess.
2. COAT fish, several pieces at a time, evenly with Cracker Meal. Let stand 5 minutes. Discard any remaining Cracker Meal. Fry as directed below. Serve with McCormick® Cocktail Sauce or Tartar Sauce. Use the entire package to coat 4 lbs. fish or seafood.

*Best with tilapia, trout, catfish, shrimp, or scallops. Also try with shucked oysters and clams, or soft-shell crabs (pierce several times before coating).

Pan Fry: Pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch in a large skillet; heat to 350°F on medium heat. Fry fish, in batches, 2 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drain on paper towels.

Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese

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

 

 

Started my morning off with a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and heated a couple of slices of Smithfield Anytime Favorites Hickory Smoked Ham. I love this Ham. Nice thick slices with excellent flavor. I made a Breakfast Sandwich and I topped the Ham with 1/2 a slice of Kroger Swiss Cheese. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. And the hot cup of Tea sure hit the spot on a frigid morning. Outside its 9 degrees, with colder weather on its way! Had a of 23 degrees but the wind chill kept in the teens. So I stayed in all day. Helped Mom with laundry and did a few things around the house. For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

Ready for the skillet!

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.

 

 

 

 

Golden Brown

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 Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Fried until cooked through and golden brown on both sides. Golden brown and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For a side I heated up a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. I like using these because there’s one serving in each cup. So no waste if I’m just cooking for myself. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salmon
Salmon is the common name for several species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Wikipedia

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, fried up 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, Scrambled 1 Egg, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I still struggled a bit with the Phantom Pains but nothing like the night before. I’ll sure be glad when these stop! Had a lot of rain overnight but the bad weather went around us. Some places had tornado touchdowns. Cooler out today, high of 54 degrees and partly cloudy. After Breakfast me and Mom went to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love going to this store, anything and more you want they have it! Back home not a lot going on. I’m still resting up from the Phantom Pains, it really took it out of me this time. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper Fish Sandwich w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. Thanks again to my friends that keep bringing me the Grouper. I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were well coated. Shook off the excess. 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. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 


To go with Fish Sandwich I prepared a Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup, one of my favorites. Just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

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

I had a light Breakfast of a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Salmon Patties Mac and Cheese 006It’s a beautiful morning out there today, sunny and 55 degrees! Another gorgeous day out there, plenty of sunshine and a high around 81 degrees with no humidity. After Breakfast I started a load of laundry for Mom. Then headed outdoors to do some work. I got the leaf blower out and cleaned the deck and driveway areas. Then got the cart out and pulled some weeds out of the flower beds. Then got the trusty hammer, nails, and saw out and did some repairs to the side of the shed. Things sure would be a lot easier to do if I wasn’t in a wheel chair, or cart, but thankful I can get around in either to get things done. Nice day to be out! For Dinner tonight I prepared Salmon Patties w/ Mac and Cheese.

Today’s Menu: Shrimp Poppers w/ Mac and Cheese

 

Shrimp Poppers w Mac and Cheese 005
Had a rough night last night. I had to deal with the Phantom Pains, and they were bad! So not a whole lot of sleep last night. For Breakfast I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and topped it with Smucker’s Sugarless Black Berry Jam. Not a lot going on today, thankfully. Beautiful day out, sunny and high in the low 60’s. Had the cart out for a while this afternoon enjoying all the sunshine! Come dinner time I was really getting tired from lack of sleep overnight so I wanted something easy to prepare for dinner. So it was the oven and microwave to prepare my meal tonight. I prepared some Shrimp Poppers w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

Shrimp Poppers w Mac and Cheese 004
I used SeaPak Shrimp Poppers, first time I used these in quite some time. To prepare them I heated up the oven on 425°f. Arranged the frozen shrimp in single layer on baking sheet. Baked them for 12 minutes (until golden brown). I turned the shrimp over after 5 minutes. When done let them cool for 3 minutes. Love these Shrimp, nice flavor and just the right amount of breading. Served them with some Louisiana Remoulade Sauce, perfect for any seafood.

 

 

 

Fried Ocean Perch w Mac & Cheese 002
To go with the Shrimp another easy dish, Stouffer’s Classic Mac & Cheese Mac Cups. just microwave and serve. A great tasting Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. Well that’s about as an easy Shrimp and Mac & Cheese dinner that you can fix! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt. Off to bed early to catch up on some tonight, hopefully!
