Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Sliced Carrots

Dinner Tonight: Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Sliced Carrots

For Breakfast I lightly fried up some thin slices of Boar's Head Honey Smoked Ham. Then toasted a
Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, layered the Ham on a slice of the Muffin and topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Longhorn Colby Cheese. Along with my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well it was above zero this morning, first time in a few days! Lot of sunshine today but not very warm, in the teens still. Indoors today not a lot going on. Finished up a load of laundry for Mom and did some light cleaning around the house. For dinner tonight  it's Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Sliced Carrots

My good friends (Jim and Linda) just returned from Florida and brought me a small cooler of
Grouper and Red Snapper fillets they caught while down there, it doesn’t get much better! I love Gulf Coast Fish, always such a fresh taste to them. To prepare them, I first rinsed the Snapper off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt. Then put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Fish Fri. Then shook the bag until the Fillet was well covered, removed from the bag shaking off the excess. I then pan fried it in a Cast Iron Skillet, that I had preheated, in Canola Oil. I fried it skin side down for 4 minutes and then flipped it over to the flesh side and fried it another 3 minutes. Golden brown and nothing but delicious! The fresh taste of the Snapper combined with the Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Fish Fri is a perfect pairing.

For one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, I always use Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Fish-Fri

The secret of authentic Southern Style fried fish is the crispy combination of corn flour, spices and lemon juice Zatarain's Seasoned Fish Fri   Lemon Pepper captured in this special Zatarain’s Frying Mix.
