Salmon Sliders

When I was growing up, we consumed a lot of fried foods; fried chicken, fried fish, fried pork chops, fried okra, fried tomatoes, French fried potatoes, etc., etc.  Need I say more?  Now that we are more aware of our bodies and the role that good nutrition plays, more and more we are looking for healthier choices in preparing and selecting our foods.  Which brings me to the subject matter; my mother always fried her salmon patties.  As I recall the oil reached at least the half way mark of the patties; and as always they were delicious.  For years now, I still struggle with eliminating fried foods from my diet and in preparing meals for my family.
This recipe may be used for March Madness and it’s also a healthier way to prepare salmon.I prepared this recipe with the intention of eliminating almost all of the cooking oil.

Tuna Casserole

Some years ago, I recall having tuna casserole for dinner at least twice a month.  My family and I always enjoyed it.  Now it’s hard for me to recall the last time that I prepared this little tasty dish.  I’ve never been fun of using cream of mushroom soup so this recipe was perfect for me.  I really would like for you to share your tuna casserole dish with us.  I know that there are many variations out there.  By the way, is it something that you prepare on a regular basis, or every now and then?

Garlic Vinaigrette Shrimp

I am unable to eat shrimp however, I still try to prepare them for my family.  According to my family the dish was wonderful.  They enjoyed it so much that asked me to record the recipe.  Give it a try and give me your comments.

Pecan-Crusted Fish

This fish is very light and not too spicy. Tilapia is a fish that I prepare often; and one that my family enjoys. The rice that I served with  it is also on this site:


Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 4-5 fish fillets (I used Tilapia)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a plate or shadow dish combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Beat egg and place in another dish.
  4. Wash and pat dry fish fillets.
  5. Dip fillets one at a time in the beaten egg and place in dry mixture to coat.
  6. Place fillets on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes of until the fish internal temperature is 145 degrees F. (It may difficult to determine the flakiness of the fish due to the coating)
Twist: Baking the crusted fish and the spices.

Mussels

This is a very easy and delicious dish. Make sure that you have French bread on hand to dip in the scrumptious wine sauce. Enjoy!
