Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice and Baked Garlic Oval Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 73 degrees, rain and thunderstorms out today. Not a thing to day today, Nothing! So that’s what I did, Nothing. Caught up on some programs I had recorded. For Dinner tonight it’s a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice.

 

I love the combo of Salmon and Rice! I had purchased a North Atlantic Salmon Fillet from Meijer and had it in the freezer. I sat the fillet in the fridge overnight to thaw. To make it I’ll need the Salmon, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Dried Parsley, Dried Chive, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

To prepare it; I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I washed the Fillet off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Next I put a light coat of the Extra Light Olive Oil on the Fillet and then seasoned. Laid the Fillet in the pan and baked. I baked it for 10 minutes, and done. Excellent Salmon!

 

For my Rice I’m using Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley – Brown and Wild Rice. It comes in a microwavable package. I microwaved it for 90 seconds and done! I guess one of my favorites from Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, although 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 perfectly with the Salmon. For Dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream.

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted Thomas Light English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 56 degrees, windy and partly cloudy out today. I had to be at Meijer at 12:20 this afternoon for my 2nd Covid Shot. I’m glad I’m getting the Pfizer Shot instead of the Johnson and Johnson, considering the trouble they are having with J and J shot. For Dinner tonight it’s a Baked Salmon w/ Whole Grain Brown and Wild Rice.

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 69 degrees and partly cloudy out today. A bit cooler out there today and they say a high in the 50’s by Friday. Maybe Fall has arrived! I’m glad I’m caught up with everything. I had one of those sleepless and rough nights dealing with Phantom Pains! Little to no sleep overnight. They started about 10:00 last night and finally let up about 11:00 this morning so I spent the day resting and catching up on sleep. I’m totally exhausted.

Blackened Grouper w/ Whole Grain Medley and Sugar Snap Peas

Today’s Menu: Blackened Grouper w/ Whole Grain Medley and Sugar Snap Peas

 

Blackened Grouper Rice 010

A taste of Spring was in the air! It’s been a sunny day out with a high in the mid 50’s! Which is nice but you have to remember it’s only February and a whole lot of Winter left. Went to Meijer and Kroger early this morning for a few items. Came back home and took my Mom’s car up and had washed. Spent some time outside enjoying the Weather and then came back in and baked a pan of Philadelphia Marble Walnut Brownies! For dinner tonight I prepared a Blackened Grouper w/ Whole Grain Medley and Sugar Snap Peas.

 

 

Blackend Grouper Grain Carrots 001

I’ll be using the Gulf Coast Grouper that I in the freezer. It’s the last piece of the Fillets a friend of mine gave on their return from Florida. I put it in the fridge to thaw overnight. To prepare it I rinsed the fillets off in cold water and patting dry and cut it into smaller pieces. I melted a tablespoon of butter, Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then brushed both sides of the fillets with the Butter and seasoned them with Sea Salt and then with Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. I then I got out my favorite skillet, The Cast Iron Skillet. When the pan was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready for the table! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This fish turned out so good, hard to describe! Moist and bursting with flavor. Just something about Gulf Seafood. The Zatarain’s Seasonings are perfect for any Seafood.

 

 

Blackened Grouper Rice 013
For one side I prepared some Uncle Ben’s Ready Whole Grain Medley. I love the Whole Grain Medley, It has Brown Rice,Red Rice, Wild Rice. It’s only 210 calories and 35 net carbs per serving. It comes in a microwave pouch, just heat for 90 seconds and it’s ready! I also heated up a bag of Walmart Marketside Sugar Snap Peas, just microwave in the steamable bag for 2 minutes and done! For dessert later, I baked a pan of Philadelphia Marble Brownies, I’ll have a Brownie Square. I’ll post the recipe for these on the next post.
