CBD-Less Food Thread

CBD contacted me at about 2:30PM looking for help. Seems he celebrated Friday so hard that he can't get out of bed.

So you have me and this quickly prepared but delicious Food Thread.

As many of you know I reside in the upper Mid-West. We enjoy fish at our home. So instead of buying fish, Mrs. MH kicks me out of the house to bring back some fresh fish. One of those fish would be the Black Crappie.

Here is a recipe that we enjoy. It isn't fried fish, but it is pretty crunch nevertheless.

1 lb fresh crappie fillets
1 egg or sub Evaporated milk
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
2/3 cup crushed corn flakes
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. pepper
Kosher salt to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Combine flour and pepper in a shallow bowl and mix well
Beat the egg in another small bowl, add 2 tsp of water and mix it well
Mix crushed corn flakes, Parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper in a separate bowl
Sprinkle fillets with Kosher salt
Dredge fillets first in flour mixture, then egg mixture then in corn flakes mixture
Place coated fillets on a baking sheet coated with cooking oil spray
Bake 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes.

Don't have fresh Crappies or bluegills or perch. Cod and Haddock work well also. I've never tried this recipe with trout or salmon. So I'm not sure what the results would be. Pan fried Brookies with skin on don't need anything else. But, that's a food thread for another day.

In the Upper Mid-West the Catholics brought with them the fish fry on Friday nights. A typical fish fry here consists of fish, cole slaw, French fries and bread/role.

Your Misanthropic gourmet loves cabbage. Here's a recipe for cole slaw from Mrs. MH's grandmother that's very good.

Cole Slaw
1 head cabbage shredded
2-3 carrots shredded
1 small onion minced
Mix veggies in a large bowl

Sauce
2/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup salad oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground mustard
1/2 tsp celery seed
Salt & pepper to taste

Boil dressing 1 minute. Pour over salad and mix well, it can be served warm or cold. Our preference is cold.

French fries, fried potatoes, hash browns all go well with this meal along with buttered dark rye bread. Wash all of it down with a cold beer of your choice, it's a damn fine meal.

Us Lutherans can only add this to the meal.

Don't worry I wouldn't eat it either.


Food news? Well there is this little tidbit. Regarding tipping restaurant workers.

For years, the restaurant industry has thrown legal challenge after legal challenge at a Labor Department regulation that bars kitchen workers from sharing in tips. The fight stretches all the way back to 2010, when the agency responded to a court ruling that allowed an Oregon restaurant to give cooks and dishwashers pooled tips by dashing out a federal law that prohibited the practice nationwide. Suffice it to say trade groups like the National Restaurant Association were displeased with the move, which was essentially a rogue act without congressional approval. But in September, the industry lost its final lower-court appeal, leaving the group with one option: Go harass the Supreme Court.


Since we've covered the "fish fry" might as well see what Uncle Sam has going on. The gubmint has put out their latest advice.

The Food and Drug Administration issued its “final advice” on fish and shellfish this week, warning against eating some species and encouraging Americans to eat three servings a week of others.

The federal agency gave particular attention to pregnant and breastfeeding women, and in less than 24 hours the Center for Science in the Public Interest said the FDA’s advice is bad medicine.

The FDA reaffirmed its 2014 advice with this week’s final advice and recommends adults, including pregnant and breastfeeding women, should eat 4-ounce servings of “low-mercury” fish and/or shellfish at least two or three times per week.

“However, all fish contain at least traces of mercury, which can be harmful to the brain and nervous system if a person is exposed to too much of it over time,” according to the FDA’s final advice


Get well CBD.
