Today’s Menu: Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Not as hot today, had a high of 83 degrees. Finished painting in the shed and moved a few things around. That was about it for the day. I’m dealing with my allergies and sinuses today. For Dinner tonight Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.
 

 

 

I’m trying another new item for Dinner tonight, Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa. I came across this one at the local Kroger Frozen Seafood. It looked great and the description sounded delicious so why not give it a try! It comes frozen and there is 2 Tilapia Fillets in the package. To prepare it you can Boil the package, Microwave, or Bake the fillets. I chose to Bake them.

 

 

 

 

So to prepare it; I first turned the oven on to 400 degrees. Next I got a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Then sprayed it with Pam w/Olive Oil Non-Stick Cooking Spray. I removed the Tilapia from the packaging and lined the 2 fillets up on the pan. With the oven heated I baked the fillets. I’ll be baking them for 17 minutes. As the Tilapia was baking I got the Mango Salsa package that came with the Fish. I just ran the package under cold water until it was thawed. I took the Tilapia out and they looked delicious!

 

 

 

I added the Mano Salsa across the tops of the Fillets. The Fillets were fork tender and flaked real easy. The Seasoning was spot on, nice mild heat, and the Mango Salsa worked perfect with the Tilapia. I’ll purchase this again, easy to prepare and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

I also prepared a packet of Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice Long Grain and Wild. It comes in a microwavable bag. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. Also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Butter. Very good Meal tonight! For Dessert later a Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Mini Cone Ice Cream.

 

 

 

 

Aqua Star Chili Lime Tilapia w/ Mango Salsa

Flame Seared Chili Lime Tilapia

Aqua Star “Flame-Seared” Tilapia is actually pre-seared on the surface to grilled perfection, allowing you to finish the final cook step with boil-in-bag, microsteam or the oven prep of your choice. These all natural fillets are glazed in a tangy chili lime marinade and paired with a delightful mango salsa included. For a true fine dining experience without the extra work of grilling outdoors or culinary expertise, these Flame–Seared fillets are ready for you to complete a restaurant quality meal at home in no-fuss minutes!

Today’s Menu: Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Sliced Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips

 

 

To start this 8th day of November off I prepared a Scrambled Egg and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. About 30 degrees this morning. Had a high of 50 degrees and partly cloudy out. Spent most of the day house cleaning today. Later in the afternoon I went to Bank for Mom. For Dinner tonight I prepared Crispy Pan Fried Tilapia w/ Sliced Potatoes and Asparagus Cuts and Tips.

 

 

I purchased the Tilapia while Jungle Jim’s International Market the other day. I had already rinsed it in cold water and had it in plastic bag the freezer. I sat the bag in the fridge and let it thaw overnight. To prepare it I’ll need; the Tilapia, McCormick Grinder Sea salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri. To start I heated Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet was ready I cooked the Tilapia in the hot Oil until Golden Brown, about 4 minutes per side. I had not had Tilapia in a while and it tasted great! Moist with excellent seasoning. Love hitting the Seafood Dept. at Jungle Jim’s. They have about anything, they even have tanks of live Tilapia and Trout!

 

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Homestyle Sliced Potatoes , first time having these. Again Jungle Jim’s is the only place around here that I seen carries this product from Simply Potatoes. To prepare them; Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a skillet until hot. Add potatoes. Cover with lid. Cook 5–6 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Turn and cook an additional 4–5 minutes. According to the package instructions – During cooking, potatoes must reach a temperature of 165degrees F for 2 minutes. Wow what an easy way to have Fried Sliced potatoes! These came out so good and were so easy to prepare! You can use these for several different Potato Recipes including Scalloped Potatoes. I’ll have to buy more of these!

 

I also heated up a can of Del Monte Asparagus Cuts and Tips. Partially drained some of the can’s liquid. Then added the contents to a small sauce pan and cooked on medium high to a boil and then reduced the heat to simmer. Cooked about 7 minutes. Really enjoyed Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Baked Garlic Herbed Tilapia w/ Mac and Cheese

Today’s Menu: Baked Garlic Herbed Tilapia w/ Mac and Cheese

 

 

I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Along with a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day off. After Breakfast I went to Meijer and had to stop by Kroger for a couple of items. For the day outside its 84 degrees and humid with rain on and off. After Lunch went to spend the afternoon with Dad. He should be coming home within the next day or so. I’m not sure if it will work out or not but Mom wanted to see if he could make it here or not. Just hoping for the best! Back home for Dinner tonight I prepared a Baked Garlic Herbed Tilapia w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

While at Kroger earlier I picked up a 2 Fillet Package of Tilapia that had already been Seasoned with Garlic and Herbs. To prepare them I’m baking them. I preheated the oven 350 degrees. I took a small Baking Sheet and lined it with Foil and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. I sprayed both sides of the Tilapia with the Pam and layed them on the Baking Sheet. The Pam helps brown most meats when baking them. When the oven was ready I baked the Tilapia. I baked them for about 25 minutes, until they started to flaky.

 

 

I’m a Fish and Seafood lover and I love this Tilapia! Nicely Seasoned and Meaty. Tilapia can be prepared so many different ways and it cooks up so easily. And as I said it’s a very Meaty Fish.

 

 

 

 

 

For my Mac and Cheese I’m using Bob Evan’s Single Serving Cup Macaroni and Cheese. They come in a 2 pack microwavable bowl package. To prepare it; Cut a small slit in film to vent. Microwave on high power for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir. Continue cooking for an additional 30 to 40 seconds. Let cool for 2 minutes and serve! My type of side. An excellent Pasta with plenty of Cheese, the bowl is plenty for 1 person. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries

 

 


For Breakfast this morning Mom wanted some Bacon so this morning I fried up some Bacon. I also fried her an Over Easy Egg, toasted a couple of slices of Bread topped with Apple Butter, and a cup of Coffee. For myself a couple of slices of Bacon, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A nice day out there today, mostly sunny and 77 degrees. Got the cart out and went around the yard and sprayed for weeds. More weeds this year that I’ve seen in a long time. Did a few other things around the yard and enjoyed the day. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 
I had purchased the Tilapia at Kroger last week and had them in the freezer. Let them thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted a 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter down and rubbed the fillets down with it, covering both sides. I then covered both sides, with Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning. I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and preheated it until the Oil was almost ready to start smoking and I added the Tilapia. Just a word of warning have your window open and overhead stove fan a working, it will smoke! I cooked the fillet for 3 minutes each side and it was fork tender and ready. I love the smokey and blackened flavor the Zatarain’s Seasoning provides. Served it on a Kroger Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun.

 


For a side I baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries, served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. Also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Chickpea, Chorizo & Spinach Soup
Chorizo lends this Mediterranean-inspired spinach soup recipe a smoky paprika flavor, and since the chorizo is sautéed first, much of the fat is drained away. Be sure to buy dry-cured, salami-style Spanish chorizo, not soft, Mexican-style sausage by the same name…..

 
Kale Salad with Bacon-Blue Cheese Vinaigrette
Hot roasted potatoes in this healthy kale salad recipe wilt the kale just enough to make it tender. Bacon and blue cheese layer on smoky, salty flavors to stand up to the flavor of the kale. Go for a strong blue cheese—we enjoy the tanginess of Maytag. Serve this salad with steak or chicken….

 
Tilapia with Grapefruit-Caper SauceTilapia with Grapefruit-Caper Sauce
In this healthy, quick tilapia recipe, you’ll combine grapefruit, shallot, capers, butter and a touch of honey for a rich, bittersweet sauce. Any grapefruit will work, but vibrant ruby-red grapefruit is the prettiest. Serve with whole-wheat couscous and broccolini…..

Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w Baked Fries 008
Started of the morning with a Poached egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Did my morning workout and off to Kroger this morning. Needed quite a few items today. Back home ran the vacuum and dusted. Noisy day around here, our next door neighbor was having new shingles put on his roof and repair to his wooden deck. Another sunny day out, about 70 degrees. This might be our Indian Summer we are having weather wise. Cooler temps moving in over the weekend. For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Tilapia Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

When cooking fish……

 
Fish is translucent when raw and turns opaque when cooked. Also, fish is done when it flakes easily when probed with a fork.
