Today’s Menu: Fried Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges and Corn on the Cob

 

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 85 degrees, humid, and mostly cloudy outside. So after my Tea I took Mom over to Jungle Jim’s International Market. They had a few Seafood Items and Cheese on sale that I wanted. I picked up a huge Florida Grouper and a good size Walleye Fillet. Back home moved everything out of the shed and gave it a good cleaning. I also patched up a hole in the rear wall. So for Dinner tonight I had something planned out but after seeing that Grouper I had to have it instead! For Dinner tonight Its Fried Grouper w/ Baked Fingerling Potato Wedges and Corn on the Cob.

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. When we went to Jungle Jim’s this morning I picked up some of the Grouper they had on sale, couldn’t pass that up! They also had Walleye on sale which I purchased also. I first washed the fillet off in cold water and then cut the huge fillet into 4 smaller fillets, keeping 1 out for Dinner and froze the other 3. 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 Seasoned Breading Mix. Shook until the fillet was 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 Fillet, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful.

For one side I prepared some Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. Started by washing the Potatoes off in cold water. I then cut the Fingerling Potatoes in half, lengthwise. Put the Potatoes in a large bowl seasoned them with; Extra Light Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder, and Kraft Reduced Fat Parmesan Grated Cheese to top the Potatoes with. Using a cookie sheet lined with foil I spread the Potatoes out on the sheet . Then Roasted them at 400 degrees until they were fork tender, about 20 minutes. Still can’t figure out why it’s so hard to find Fingerling Potatoes in this area, only 1 store around here locally that sells them (Thank you Jungle Jim’s)

For another side I boiled an Ear of Sweet Corn, thanks again to Jungle Jim’s! It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Quite a Meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
