Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs

Dinner Tonight: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs

To start my day I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, not real hungry this morning. It's
another hot and humid day out there with showers on and off. Today was clean and straighten the freezer, fridge, and pantry day. So this took up my day for the most part. It took dad all of 24 hours to break the new lift chair we had bought him. So now its going to cost a little over $200 to repair it. The damage he caused is not covered under warranty. He kept moving the chair back as far as he could and it burnt the motor out. Nothing we can do but pay it! Anyway for Dinner tonight I prepared Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Baked Potato Puffs.

Just can't get enough of Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper my friends keep bringing me back! I had it in the freezer so I grabbed a fillet and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.It’s another one of those beautiful Grouper fillet! To prepare it I rinsed the fillet off in cold water and patted it dry with paper towel. I then seasoned them it with a bit of Sea Salt. Then I melted 1 tablespoon of Blue Bonnet Lite Butter and rolled the fillet in the Butter. I then added the Zatarain’s Blackening Seasoning, coating both sides of the fillet.

I prepared it in a preheated Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray. When the pan
was fully heated, on medium heat, I added my Grouper. At this point turn on your Stove Overhead Exhaust Fan on, because it will start smoking from the seasoning. Cooked it about 4 minutes per side, and it was ready! Cast Iron Skillets are perfect to use for any cooking but especially when you Blacken something. The Skillet heats up and holds it heat and the heat evenly distributes across the Skillet, perfect for Blackening Meats. This is one delicious Grouper! The fresh taste of the Grouper, so meaty, along with the Blackening Season are a perfect combo. Love Fish, Love Seafood! Plus as you can tell as big as this fillet was I only had half of it for dinner. The other half for lunch tomorrow!

Then for a side dish I prepared some Alexia Potato Puffs. Second time I’ve had these and really like them! To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Arrange the frozen potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with foil. Baked for 25, stirring halfway through the cooking time. And we have another Keeper Potato Product! Browned up perfect with excellent seasoning. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream.

Zatarain’s Blackened Seasoning

This spicy seasoning blend is rubbed on the outside of fish (or chicken, steak or other meats) for
blackening. Also great as a seasoning rub for the grill or broiler.
