Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Grilled Zucchini and Buffalo Cauliflower

Dinner Tonight: Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Grilled Zucchini and Buffalo Cauliflower

For my Breakfast this morning I toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin and Scrambled 2
medium size Eggs. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another rainy but mild day out again. We had a high of 56 degrees, not too bad for early January weather! Rain on and off all day though. Cleaned the house today, vacuumed and dusted. Then after Lunch I installed a new set of speakers on my computer. Needed these for a long time, the old ones rarely worked. Then I installed a new Security and Virus Protection and then I added more RAM to my computer. Trying to get the computer in top shape. I did not like being not able to use it all weekend! So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Seasoned Gulf Coast Grouper w/ Grilled Zucchini and Buffalo Cauliflower.

I love this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper! And my friends just brought me a fresh batch of them. 6 big
fillets of it. They were just caught this past weekend. So I had them in the freezer so I grabbed a fillet and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.

 To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic
Bag where I then added the Zatarain’s Seafood Breading Mix Seasoning. Shook until it was well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillet, frying about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. Love Fish, Love Seafood!

Went shopping at Meijer yesterday and found 2 new items that I'm trying for Dinner tonight. One

being Woodstock Organic Organic Grilled Zucchini. I've only tried Zucchini once before and that was years ago. To prepare it; it comes frozen, first get a medium size skillet and spray it with Pam Cooing Spray and add a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heat on medium heat, when fully heated I added my Zucchini. Stir - fried it for about 5 minutes and done! Seasoned it with some Sea Salt and Ground Pepper and served. I came very tender and flavorful. Another good Vegetable side to have handy in the Freezer.

Then for the second new side I prepared a bag of Birdseye Buffalo Cauliflower. Another easy
prepared frozen side dish! It comes in a steamable bag and to prepare it I microwaved it. Just layed the bag in the microwave and microwaved for 6 minutes. Remove from the microwave and let it cool for 1 minute and serve. These had a nice Buffalo heat and flavor! Another good item to have on hand. That's why I like Meijer, not only lower prices but the  a great selection of foods. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.
