Dinner Tonight: Seasoned Haddock w/ Multi - Grain Medley and 3 Bean Salad
Busy day around the house today. We are having a new roof put on the house and our shed today.
Which also means a whole lot of noise. Another beautiful Fall day out again, we are on a roll weather wise. Sunny and a high in the 70's. Did a load of laundry for Mom and cleaned up around the house. Didn't get to go see Dad today, I had to stick around the house while the repairs are going on. For dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Haddock w/ Multi - Grain Medley and 3 Bean Salad.
Well they finally had Haddock back in stock at the Kroger I go to. They told me a couple of weeks ago they were no longer going to carry it, they just weren't selling enough of it. But Monday when I was there they said they had brought it back due to so many complaints. Anyway I purchased 3 nice size fillets that I've already cleaned and cut into smaller fillets and put in the freezer. I did keep some out for my dinner tonight. I love Haddock it cooks up so nicely and I love the flavor and how meaty it is.
So to prepare it I had cut the fillet into smaller pieces. I then seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the pieces in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix. Shook until all the pieces were well coated. Shook off the excess and pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, frying them about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Haddock and Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Mix, the perfect combo. The Zatarain’s Breading and Seasonings are my favorites. Love Haddock!
For one side dish I prepared some Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love the Minute Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving.
I also had some Read’s 3 Bean Salad. It comes in a can and you can prepare it various ways. I just opened the can and put it in a plastic bowl, put the lid on, and set in the refrigerator to chill for a couple of hours or so. I served these chilled. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Greek Yogurt.
Minute Multi-Grain Medley
* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
