Great Dinner Ideas
What's For Dinner ?? The burning question every evening. Last night we had a great dinner. Over the summer we went fishing in Florida and had a fantastic experience. I defrosted some fish from our fishing trip and then thought for a while to come up with a recipe.
NOTE: If you don't have fish in your freezer you can purchase great fish (non farm raised) at http://www.mandevilleseafoodmarket.com.
I decided on the menu: Blackened Fish with roasted potatoes, broccoli and a quick Ceasar Salad.
Here is the recipe for Blackened Fish:
Blackened Fish Seasoning:
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
3/4 teaspoon white pepper
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Mix all ingredients together.
There are a few secrets to blackening your fish to perfection. You will need: Cast iron skillet - smoking hot, melted butter
First, rinse your fish and dry each piece with a paper towel. Then dip the fish in melted butter and then coat with the seasoning. Place in skillet and sear on both sides. Enjoy
The roasted potatoes are super easy - cut up the potatoes and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place in the oven that is pre-heated 400 degrees. Roast until tender 25 - 45 minutes.
I used a bag of broccoli and cooked it in the microwave. Seasoned with a little Tony's Seasoning.
I purchased the broccoli from Sams Club in Covington. http://samsclub.com It's a 4 pound bag of broccoli that has 4 portion bags of broccoli.
This was an easy dinner and very yummy.
