Today’s Menu: Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A beautiful day out today, 79 degrees and sunny! I had to buy new batteries for my cart I keep in the shed. So today I installed the new batteries and it was job! Had to remove the seat to get to everything. Finally got them changed but it was tough. Took a ride around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beautiful weather. For Dinner tonight its a Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice.

 

 

 

 

I purchased the fresh Atlantic Salmon from the Kroger Seafood Department. I had it in the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. I’m going to prepare it using the Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon recipe. I haven’t had Salmon or used this recipe in a while. To make I’ll need; Salmon Fillets (4 ounces each), 4 teaspoons Dijon Mustard, 4 teaspoons Honey, 2 slices Whole Grain Bread (torn into pieces), 3 tablespoons finely chopped Walnuts, 2 teaspoons Extra Light Olive Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme. To prepare it; Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Place the Salmon on a baking sheet coated with Pam cooking spray. Mix the Mustard and Honey; brush over the Salmon. Next I placed the Bread in a food processor; pulse until coarse crumbs form. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in Walnuts, Olive Oil and Thyme; press it onto the Salmon Fillet.

 

 

 

Bake 12-15 minutes or topping is lightly browned and fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. The Salmon came out perfect, moist and delicious. The Walnut Crust is perfect for the Salmon. The Walnuts, Honey, Dijon Mustard, Thyme, and fresh Bread Crumbs all combine perfectly. Love this recipe.

 

 

 

 

 

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. An easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready. I love Rice and it pairs with Fish perfect. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

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.
