We Don't Have To Eat Fish On Friday- But We Did!


Friday night, crappy weather- let's check the freezer for inspiration about what to have for dinner... Pork roast- too big, too frozen! Boneless skinless chix breast-nah, just had that... Wait! There's 4 small flounder filets that should thaw quickly!
Had read a recipe earier in the day, Creole flavors, had all ingredients-done deal! I seasoned the filets with Old Bay and laid them into a glass pan, covered with diced tomato, green bell pepper slices, and sliced onion. Seasoned again,adding lemon pepper, put into a 350F oven for 35 minutes, and served with a side of rice. Spicy! But perfect warmer-upper on a cold Friday night, and it wasn't as "heavy" as some the the meals we've been having... Enjoy your week-ends everyone!

We are having that kind of weather too...but probably not as bad as you. Unexpected company in the person of a grand daughter who is a vegetarian! No meat whatsoever! We had a vegetable casserole and salad. Your fish sounds great!!

I wish we'd had that instead of the Chinese takeaway! :(

DogB- I went heavy on the spices, but it actually made it a more interesting treat..
in_spired- How nice of you to respect her beliefs and accommodate her so well...
jen- Scary, isn't it?
marmy- Sort of what we'd top a "Sheperds Pie" with here!
Ake- That sounds good right now, too!

Yum-O!

Tavolini said...

that sounds fantastic! I've made a Moroccan fish tajine that had very similar ingredients--probably more lemon. Smart to cook in the oven and heat up the house :)

buffalodickdy said...

Twern't too bad! Mombo (as in Rambo!) Good lookin' family, dear!
Tavolini- Love the fact that you lived here and know that! Killer meal you prepared down South!A marine? He looks tough enough, but smarter than that! Blessings on you both!

MarmiteToasty said...

marmy- My first Sheperds' Pie was at a rest home I worked at when in school! My family never cooked such things, and even though it was made in a rest home kitchen- it was wonderful!

Odat said...

I love anything spicy!!!
Peace

I'm saddened to learn that there are no shepperds in the pie of the same name ;-(

Roger said...

buffalodickdy said...

Casdok said...

You always make food sound so tempting!
Thank you for your wise words on my blog today!!

Annie said...

I'm figuring out that all I need to do is come here for inspiration about what to have for dinner. You are a kind of kitchen god, I think.

buffalodickdy said...

annie- More of a kitchen demon than a God, I suspect! But thanks for the kind words....You need more demons in your life I think! Spicy!!!

your freezer always seems really well-stocked. i never freeze anything and hence always have to make a trip to the store. ugh.
