Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Smashed Potatoes and Purple Passion Asparagus

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Smashed Potatoes and Purple Passion Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Scrambled Egg that i topped with Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a few drops of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Then I fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside it was 48 degrees this morning and its partly cloudy and had a high of 76 degrees. Gave Mom a hand with laundry and then outside and cleaned. After Lunch I got the clippers out and trimmed the vines alongside the driveway. Got the cart out later and took a ride around the neighborhood. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Smashed Potatoes and Purple Passion Asparagus.

 
I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Florida! I had a fillet of it in the freezer, laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare the fillets I seasoned them with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillets were 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 Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish and Love this Grouper!

 

For a side dish I prepared Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt. I’ve made Smashed Potatoes before and thought I would give this recipe a try. I came across this recipe on the Swift Premium site while reading about the Shoulder Roast I’m having tonight. I’ll need the following to prepare the dish; Yukon gold new potatoes, Blue Bonnet Light Butter (melted), Extra Light Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley Pepper.

 

 

 

To prepare the dish; Cook potatoes in gently boiling heavily salted water for 12 to 15 minutes or just until tender. Drain well and cool slightly. Transfer the potatoes to a large baking sheet lined with foil. Gently press each potato with the bottom of a cup until slightly crushed and flattened, but not falling apart. Next preheat oven broiler. Combine the butter, oil and garlic powder. Brush half of the butter mixture on potatoes. Broil 3 inches from heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and slightly crisp. Carefully turn potatoes over using a wide spatula. Brush with butter mixture; lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil for another 2 to 4 minutes or until golden. Let cool and serve! Excellent Smashed Potato Recipe!

 

For another side dish I had picked up some more of the Purple Passion Asparagus at Meijer. It tastes like Green Asparagus but it’s less fibrous and sweeter due to a higher sugar content. I prepared it the same way as the Roasted Asparagus I’ve made before. I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of Crumbled Bacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the bacon, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and that slight sweet taste to it. Really like the Purple Asparagus over the Green Asparagus! What a Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

 

 

 

 

 
Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Stuffed Clam and Sea Scallops w/ Smashed Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

Today’s Menu: Stuffed Clam and Sea Scallops w/ Smashed Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled some Egg Beater’s Egg Whites, fried 2 Jimmy Dean Breakfast Turkey Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice way to start a Saturday Morning! After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and cleaned the house while that was going. After Lunch went to a friend’s house for a Graduation Party for his son. Ran into a lot of people I had not seen in a while, good catching up. For Dinner tonight a Seafood treat. I prepared Stuffed Clam and Sea Scallops w/ Smashed Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.

 

 


For the Stuffed Clam; I purchased these at Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they have in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often now,we love them! For my Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right and the Louisiana Remoulade Sauce is perfect to dip it in. Plus they are only $1 per Clam.

 

I used Kroger Seafood Sea Scallops. I took a Cast Iron Skillet and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, also added 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and 1 table spoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. Heated it up on medium high. Then I washed the Scallops in cold water and patted them dry with a paper towel. I’ll be using Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning. In a small microwavable bowl I melted a tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Light Stick Butter. I then dipped the Scallops in the Butter one at a time, just buttering the tops and bottoms of the Scallop. Then I took about 2 tablespoons of the Blackened Seasoning and put it in a small bowl, and took the Scallops one at a time and pressed the top and bottom of each Scallop into the Seasoning. I had my skillet already heated up, added the Scallops and cooked each Scallop 3 minutes per side. As the Scallops were cooking I cut a Lemon in half and squirted a little Lemon Juice across the tops of them. They turned out delicious! The freshness of the Scallops, the butter, Lemon, and Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning gave them an incredible flavor.

 

For a side dish I prepared Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt. I’ve made Smashed Potatoes before and thought I would give this recipe a try. I came across this recipe on the Swift Premium site while reading about the Shoulder Roast I’m having tonight. I’ll need the following to prepare the dish; Yukon gold new potatoes, Blue Bonnet Light Butter (melted), Extra Light Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley Pepper.

 

 

 

To prepare the dish; Cook potatoes in gently boiling heavily salted water for 12 to 15 minutes or just until tender. Drain well and cool slightly. Transfer the potatoes to a large baking sheet lined with foil. Gently press each potato with the bottom of a cup until slightly crushed and flattened, but not falling apart. Next preheat oven broiler. Combine the butter, oil and garlic powder. Brush half of the butter mixture on potatoes. Broil 3 inches from heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and slightly crisp. Carefully turn potatoes over using a wide spatula. Brush with butter mixture; lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil for another 2 to 4 minutes or until golden. Let cool and serve! Excellent Smashed Potato Recipe!

 

I also boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, Mom and Dad love this. If you’ve never tried the Green Giant Corn you need to! It’s frozen Mini Ears of sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! Wow, what a Dinner tonight! It’s been Fish and Seafood most of the week and I love it! For dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast w/ Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt

 

 

 

 

 

To start this sunny Monday morning off I prepared a Poached Egg, served it with a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It’s sunny out but 31 degrees out there this morning! One cool May morning! It was a bit warmer out today, a high in the 60’s. A good day to get catch up on some yard work and cleaning. The last few days we’ve had a lot of rain with local flooding. Had everything done and took a ride around the neighborhood in the cart. For Dinner tonight its a Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast w/ Rustic Smashed Potatoes with Sea Salt.

 

 

 

I had picked up a Swift Premium Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast at Kroger yesterday and preparing it for Dinner tonight. The Dry Rubbed Santa Maria Boneless Petite Pork Shoulder Roast comes packaged already seasoned. You can roast this in the oven or use the Slow Cooker as I am today. I got my Crock Pot out and put a plastic liner in it and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray.First remove the Shoulder Roast from the package and place in slow cooker with 1 inch of water in bottom. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or until fork tender.

 

 

Remove the Roast from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Then shred meat with two forks for Sandwiches or you can slice it, I’m having it sliced. The Roast came out mouth-watering delicious! Tender, moist, and well seasoned. So tender it broke apart while taking it out of the Slow Cooker. I’ll use the leftovers for Sandwiches.

Today’s Menu: Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder w/ Boiled Baby Carrots and Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary

 

Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 010
It’s a typical Ohio Summer Day outside today! Hot and Humid, but not overly bad. Had a light Breakfast and then my morning workout. I got my Pork Shoulder going in the Crock Pot and then gave the Kitchen and Fridge a good cleaning. Ran the vacuum and dusted, and cleaning was done for the day! Not much else going on so it was the sofa and remote for me. For dinner tonight I prepared a Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder w/ Boiled Baby Carrots and Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary.

 

 

Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 004
I had been wanting some Pork Shoulder for a while. So while I was at Kroger yesterday I picked one up. I used a real easily prepared recipe for it. Using one of my favorite cooking vessels, the Crock Pot. To make this I’ll need the following; Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt (about 4 to 7 pounds, bone-in or boneless), 1/4 cup of Water, JB’s Fat Boy Premium All-Purpose Rub, and JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce.

 

 
The night before I applied the Rub all over Pork Shoulder and sealed it in a plastic bag. Refrigerate until ready to use the next day. Pulled the Pork Shoulder from the fridge, shaking off any excess Rub. Then to prepare it I lined my Crockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 005Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Plastic Bag Liner and sprayed that with Pam Cooking Spray w/ Olive Oil. Turned the Crock Pot on High. Placed the Meat in the slow cooker with Water. Covered and cooked on High for 1 hour. Turned it to Low and cooked 7 to 9 hours longer, until very tender. Removed the Roast and discarded the fat and juices. Shredded the Pork; returned it to slow cooker. Mixing a little BBQ Sauce into the Meat for more flavor. Cover and cooked on Low for about 1 hour longer, until hot. Served on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Sandwich Bun. With Coleslaw (Optional) and extra BBQ Sauce on the side. Nothing but a winning Pork Shoulder Dish! So tender and seasoned just right with Rub and BBQ Sauce. A lot of leftovers for some delicious Sandwiches!

 

Noodles n Chicken Baby Carrots 004
For one side dish I prepared Boiled Baby Carrots. I used a can of Kroger Baby Carrots, just heat in a sauce pan in its own juices and serve. I use these all the time, just as good as fresh and easier to prepare.

 

 

 
Then for the other side I prepared Roasted Yukon Potatoes with Rosemary. I’ll need; YukonCrockpot BBQ Pork Shoulder 007 Gold Potatoes (cut in wedges), 1 tablespoon Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, and McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. To prepare I preheated the oven to 425 degrees F. Tossed the Potatoes, Dried Rosemary, Olive Oil, and Sea Salt and Pepper. Then on a foil lined baking sheet arrange the Potatoes cut side down and roast until fork tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Potatoes and Carrots and Pork, a perfect trio combo for dinner. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
