Today’s Menu: Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and Green Beans

 

 

To start this Monday Morning off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam and my Morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers this morning, much needed, had some sun later in the day, high of 79 degrees. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Cleaned out the Microwave, the new one will be here tomorrow. We purchased it from Best Buy and they are delivering it, installing it, and taking the old one with them. We’ve really missed the Microwave the last few days. I didn’t think we used it as much as we do. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Catfish Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese and Green Beans.

 

 

I ‘m not a huge fan of Whole Catfish Fillets, I prefer the Catfish Nuggets. But It’s really all the same, Catfish is Catfish. Mom prefers the Fillets, over the Nuggets, so that’s what we had! I purchased the Fillets from Meijer.

 

 

 

 

 

I rinsed the Fillets off in water and dried them with a paper towel. To prepare them I’ll just need some Morton’s Lite Salt and Zatarain’s Fish Fri Seasoned Seafood Breading Mix. I got a large Cast Iron  Skillet sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I Seasoned the Catfish with the Salt and then got pie pan and added the Breading Mix to it. Then rolled the Fillets in it making sure the Fillets were well covered with Breading. With the Cast Iron heated I added the Fillets. I fried them 4 minutes a side, nice and golden brown. The Zatarain’s Breading Mix give’s it fantastic flavor, I might have the Catfish Fillets more often! I love using Cast Iron Skillets!

 

 

 

So as the Fish was frying I prepared a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, Mom loves this. But it’s too high in calories and carbs for me so I heated up some leftover Green Beans. I saved a lot calories and carbs by going with the Green Beans over the Mac and Cheese, plus I enjoy the Green Beans more than the Mac and Cheese. I also made Mom a small Cast Iron Skillet of Cornbread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catfish
The most commonly eaten species in the United States are the channel catfish and the blue catfish, both of which are common in the wild and increasingly widely farmed. Farm-raised catfish became such a staple of the diet of the United States that on 25 June 1987, President Ronald Reagan established National Catfish Day to recognize “the value of farm-raised catfish.”

Catfish is eaten in a variety of ways. In Europe it is often cooked in similar ways to carp, but in the United States it is popularly crumbled with cornmeal and fried.… Wikipedia
