Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

Dinner Tonight: Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Fried Kahn's Fried Bologna, a Scrambled Egg (2 Eggs),
toasted 2 slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (Lightly Buttered), and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. It's a very sad day for our family today. My Aunt passed away last night. She was in an assisted living center, she had dementia. We are all glad she is no longer suffering but she is so, so, missed. For Dinner tonight I prepared Blackened Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Hash Browns and Cut Green Beans.

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 filet was I only had half of it for dinner. The other half for lunch tomorrow!

Then for one side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns. Fried in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and
seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, and Parsley. I love Hash Browns, they make the perfect side for any Fish Dish. I also heated up a can of Del Monte Low Sodium Cut Green Beans. I also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (Lightly Buttered) and a Diet Trop-A-Rocka Snapple to drink. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

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.
