Today’s Menu: Catfish Nuggets w/ Yellow Rice and Sliced Carrots

Catfish Nuggets Rice 007



Another cool and windy Fall Day, rain with periods of sun. Helped Mom outside between the showers of rain, putting up the outdoor furniture for the upcoming Winter. Had to go the bank and post office and that was about it. For dinner tonight I prepared Catfish Nuggets w/ Yellow Rice and Sliced Carrots.

Picked these up at Kroger, on sale. Gave the Catfish Nuggets a good cleaning to start and seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

For one side I prepared a new one, Zatarain’s New Orleans Style Yellow Rice. Love my Zatarain’s Products, first time I tried this one though. It’s a Long Grain Rice that’s seasoned with Bell Peppers, Onions, and Garlic. With the Mix add Water and Butter, and boil. It came out perfect! Well seasoned and delicious. Another good one from Zatarain’s. Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots and had a couple of slices of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Cup of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.
