Creole Blackened Flounder

Hello everyone,

Welcome to……

Recently, I have been trying to convince my oldest to venture out and try different types of seafood. She will only eat 2 things in the seafood arena…….

  • Crab Cakes
  • Salmon

To ease her into trying flounder I fried it. She loved it, which was great. Now that I know she will eat it I had to find another way to make it.  As much as I enjoy fried food it’s not something I make often.

Then it hit me…..she LOVES my Creole Blackened Wingettes……

Why not make Creole Blackened Flounder……I mean it only makes sense right.

Ok, so let’s dive into this recipe together…….

Ingredients:

10-12 Wild Caught Flounder Fillets

Creole Seasoning:

In a jar combine the following herbs and spices.

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
  • 1 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) I did not use the cayenne in my mixture as my oldest is not a fan.  I just sprinkled it on my pieces of fish at the end.

Method:

  1. Rinse the fish fillets and pat dry. Season both sides of the fish with the seasoning mixture, pressing it into the fish to help the seasoning adhere well.
  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat and add a thin layer of oil to the pan (be sure to use an oil for high-temperature cooking).  When the pan is heated place your seasoned fish in the skillet and cook without moving the fish for 3-4 minutes until nicely browned (be sure not to overcrowd the pan).  Turn the fish over and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until the fish is done.  Repeat with the remaining fillets – adding oil as necessary and keeping the skillet very hot.

Once done, enjoy.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

6 Simple Steps to Oven Baked Beignets

Hello everyone,

My daughter loves when I make these for her. Usually, I fry them…so my goal this time was to put a bit of a healthier spin on my old recipe. For the fried recipe click here.

Now, let’s dive into this new recipe and start baking.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup warm water (about 100 F)
2 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast (or 1 packet)
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 Tbs sugar + 1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
5 Tbs Organic Vegetable Shortening
1 egg
3/4 cup almond milk + 1 Tbs of white vinegar (mix together well)

Directions:

1. Combine the yeast, warm water and the 1/2 tsp of sugar in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes. ( It should look foamy.)

2. In a food processor or large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Cut your vegetable shortening into the flour mixture, until it resembles coarse sand.

3. Add the yeast, egg, vanilla and the Almond Milk mixture. Stir together to form a soft dough ball. Next on a floured surface knead your dough for about a minute.

4. Spray a bowl with cooking spray and place your dough ball in and let it rise for 45 minutes in a warm place.

5. Then, roll out dough into a large rectangle or square on a floured surface. Cut square into five long strips and then cut those strips into squares. Place squares on a parchment lined baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.

6. Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake beignets for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Dust with powdered sugar and eat warm.
