I approach Tuesdays with extreme caution. They are just bad luck. But, by 6pm, I’m in full TV watching mode. I have maybe 4-5 shows that I watch through the week and 2 of them are on Tuesday. So, after my dinner and quick run, I settled in for Biggest Loser and Glee with a tall glass of Diet Dr. Pepper. I’ve had a metric ton of water today trying to help move along this sinus junk, so I enjoyed a cup of coffee with dinner and then this wonderful fizzy happy drink.
Spring came really early this year, but Stephen didn’t mind. He hit the river and brought home these beauties. I will cook anything he brings home as long as it has been “prepared”. No eyes or I’m done. I found a bowl of fresh pink fillets just waiting for some mango salsa and sweet heat potatoes.
I love the occasional fried food, but fish is my favorite. After finding a great method for quick frying, I haven’t looked back at greasy fish.
For these, I tossed them in a ziplock bag with 2 eggs, then dredged in seasoned cornmeal. Heat oil to 175*, then cook 2-3 minutes on the first side, no more than 2 min. on the other side. This is for thin fish like crappie, catfish, flounder, and tilapia. Thicker fish like cod and some bass will need an extra minute on both sides.
And, I’m still in awe of the flavors of my favorite mango salsa. (The printable recipe is on the recipe page)
Sweet Heat Potatoes
- 2 sweet potatoes cut into fries—same size for even cooking!
- olive oil
- chipotle seasoning
1. Cut fries, toss in oil, sprinkle with seasonings.
2. Roast in oven 30min at 400. I turned them halfway through cooking.
Of course now that we’ve grilled steak and fried fish, we are expecting freezing mornings by Friday and as of right this minute, the river is flooding due to torrential downpours. We may have jinxed the whole thing.
