Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Golden Hominy

Dinner Tonight: Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Golden Hominy

Had a light Breakfast of a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After that I headed to Walmart to pick up some Printing Paper and a part for my computer. Stopped by the bank for Mom and got gas while out. Back home installed the replacement part on the computer. Did some light cleaning around the house to finish the afternoon. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Red Snapper w/ Hash Browns and Golden Hominy.

My friends had went to Florida a while back and brought me a small cooler of 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. I had them in the freezer so I laid 3 fillets in the fridge to thaw overnight. 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 fillets in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Fish Fri. Then shook the bag until the fillets were 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. This ended up being some of the best tasting Red Snapper we’ve ever had, thanks again to Jim and Linda!!

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.

For another side dish I opened up a can of one of my favorite side dishes, Kroger Brand Golden
Hominy. For those that has never had or heard of Hominy; Hominy is a food made from kernels of corn which are soaked in an alkali solution of either lime or lye. The corrosive nature of the solution removes the hull and germ of the corn and causes the grain itself to puff up to about twice its normal size. There is White and Golden Hominy, my favorite is the Golden Hominy. If you’ve never tried it do, makes a delicious side dish!
