Today’s Menu: Lemon Pepper and Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots

 

 

To start this Friday morning off I had a Jimmy Dean Simple Scramble – Turkey Sausage, Egg Whites, Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Love these, so easy to prepare and make a good Breakfast. Plus they are only 150 calories and 3 carbs per cup! The same weather outside again. Passing rain and thunderstorms, humid, and 79 degrees. Had to go to the local Kroger to pick up a couple of items and a prescription for Mom. Cleaned the Kitchen and then took it easy for the afternoon. I’m still dealing with my allergies, everyone around here is suffering! For Dinner tonight Cumin Crusted Walleye Fillet w/ Baked Tater Tots.

 

 

 

I came across the recipe on the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website, CUMIN-CRUSTED FISH FILLET WITH LEMON. I’ll be using Walleye as my Fish of Choice. Then for Seasoning I’ll need; Ground Cumin, Thyme, Paprika, Lemon Pepper, and Parsley. I left the original recipe and it’s web link at the end of the post. But after thinking about it I’m going to use Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. I did add a bit of Ground Cumin to the Breading Mix. I’m all for making Cooking easier while keeping the flavors and taste. I had the Walleye in the freezer in a plastic Hefty Bag. Laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it, in a pie pan I added the Zatarain Mix. Rubbed the mix on both sides of fillets.

 

 

 

Then in a large skillet, set over medium heat, heat Extra Light Olive Oil. Add the Walleye and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Sprinkled with parsley and done! Love all the Zatarain’s Mixes on Fish and Seafood!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with my Walleye, as it was cooking I preheated the oven on 425° to bake some Ore Ida Tater Tots. Just bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and done! The Tater Tots come out golden brown and delicious! I served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese

 

For Breakfast morning I prepared Scrambled Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, heated 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green. Rain in the morning and cloudy in the afternoon, 68 degrees. After Lunch I went to Lowes and they had Gas Grills on sale. I purchased a Char – Broil Grill. I paid extra to have it assembled and delivered. I’ve put together my share of grills and having to build them while in a wheelchair is just too much trouble. Worth the extra money to have it done! Waiting on the arrival, we’ll finally have a grill again! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Mac and Cheese.

 

 

 

 

While at Meijer the other day I picked up a couple of Walleye Fillets. I’m Preparing one of the fillets tonight and froze the other one. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

 

 

Then for a side I microwaved Stouffer’s Classic Mac and Cheese Mac Cup. Frozen individual Mac Cups, just microwave and serve. Mac and Cheese in a single serving cup! Tastes great, excellent Cheesy Mac. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fresh Green Beans and AppleWood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole

 

 

To start the morning off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. No appetite this morning. After my Tea and morning workout I went to McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. I headed back out and went to Menard’s. I’m looking for a battery operated weed trimmer. Stopped off at the Post Office and mailed a few letters for Mom. Partly sunny and humid out today, high of 84 degrees. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Fresh Green Beans and AppleWood Smoked Bacon Potato Casserole.

 

 

 

While at Meijer a while back I bought a few fillets of Walleye. I had used a couple of them and had the last one in the freezer. So I grabbed that bag and sit in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare it I first rinsed the fillet in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillet in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

 

For a side I cooked up the last bag of the fresh Green Beans for Dinner last night. Boiled them with a piece of Fatback Pork in the kettle. Reheating the leftovers tonight. Love these fresh Green Beans!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then I also prepared a box of Idahoan Applewood Smoked Bacon Homestyle Casserole. Like the other Idahoan dishes their a breeze to prepare and a delicious Potato Dish. And like the others this turned out fantastic! Very well seasoned, and you can taste that Applewood bacon flavor. I love my Potatoes! I also had a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Today’s: Menu: Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus, Baked Potato, and Baked Garlic Bread Loaf

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I lightly Buttered with I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast i went to Walmart for a few items and went to their Garden Center also. I stopped at McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Outside had rain early and then partly sunny and 85 degrees. After Lunch I finished repotting some Pepper Plants and Herb Plants I had bought at Walmart. We finally got the shed cleaned out and organized! Now I have all kinds of room for storage and work. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Walleye Fillet w/ Roasted Asparagus and Baked Potato.

 


While at Meijer the other day I bought a couple of fillets of Walleye. I first rinsed the fillets in cold water and patted them dry with paper towel. Then to prepare them I seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Pepper Medley. Put the fillets in a Hefty Plastic Bag and added some Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, sealed the bag and shook till the fillet was well coated. I then fried them in Extra Light Olive Oil on medium heat, about 4 minutes per side till golden brown! I love Walleye, as I do most Fish. Walleye is so meaty and has such a fresh flavor!

 

For one side dish I prepared Roasted Asparagus for one side. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Roasted Asparagus Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving.

 


For another side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has became the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup.
