Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Vegetable Rotini

 

 

To start my Monday morning off I Poached an Egg, heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Sausage Links, toasted a couple of slices of Ant Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A delicious way to start the day! Cloudy with light rain and a high of 56 degrees. Cleaned and straightened the Pantry and Freezers. Later on just rested for a while, my Sinuses are really bad today. For Dinner tonight its a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Vegetable Rotini and Marinara Sauce

 

 

 

 

 


I had purchased the Grouper Fillet at Kroger yesterday. So to prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until the fillet was 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 Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillet, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful!

 

 

 

 

Last minute change, Out of the Stouffer’s Mac and Cheese and I used Birds Eye Steamfresh Veggie Made Rotini Marinara. First time trying it and loved it! Heated in the package for 4 minutes in the microwave. Turned out perfect! I’ll be trying this and the others soon! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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.

Today’s Menu: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables

 

 

 
For Breakfast on this second day of 2017 I’m having a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, topped withseasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-baked-clam-strips-and-harvest-vege-011 Smucker’s Sugar-free Blackberry Jam, and as every morning, a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast and the morning workout I headed off to Meijer. They had several sale items that we use so I went to cash in on them and I also needed to pick up a couple of packages of Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I’m making some 3 Bean Turkey Chili sometime this week. Not a bad at all out here today, cloudy but 54 degrees! Back home I did some light cleaning around the house. For Dinner tonight its Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper, Baked Clam Strips, and Harvest Vegetables.

 

 
I love Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back up from Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Seaso 004Florida! 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, Love Seafood!

 

 

Clam Strips and Baked Fries 003
I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 400 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping.

 

 

 

seasoned-gulf-coast-grouper-baked-clam-strips-and-harvest-vege-005
Then for a side I prepared a package of Pict’sweet Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Red Potatoes and Herb and Garlic Seasoning. Another item that’s easy to prepare. Just microwave them in their steamable bag they come in on high for 5 minutes an d you have some steaming hot delicious vegetables. Pict’sweet has several different vegetable products but this is my favorite. It contains sugar snap peas, carrots and robust roasted red potatoes in a garlic seasoning.
