Fish Dinner - lots of big photos Tue, 01/9/07 6:23 PM (permalink)
Thanks to John A and others who nudged me into recording Saturday night’s baked fish dinner. All the main ingredients were purchased at the Fairgrounds Market in Allentown PA earlier in the day.

First, make some coleslaw.


Then start cooking some boiled potatoes in olive oil.


Dip fish fillets (these are flounder) in milk or buttermilk; then just the tops in dry breadcrumbs. Add seasonings, a squeeze of lemon juice and dots of butter.


Husband likes his plainer so orange juice, Old Bay and olive oil on his. Ready for the oven.



After 15-20 min. of baking, flounder dinner two ways.

              THAT looks fantastic! A picture is worth a thousand words. Love the serving platters as well. Very cool!

                Most excellent. New potatoes look delicious. Pics great! I like mine similar to your spouse, but both look VERY tasty.

                    Those great Fish Fry Nights at Howard Johnsons used Flounder. That was my introduction to a good fish fry (both as a customer and as a cook).

                      I wish we had Friday night fish fry events in Knoxville but it is not a tradition here like in Wisconsin and other states.

                      I really enjoyed the events in Milwaukee. It seems that every church has one.

                        That fish looks just fabulous. How much do you pay for flounder down there?

                            $7.99/lb. and the four fillets totalled just under a pound. Origin was the Jersey shore and they were very fresh and firm. I am waiting for the upcoming striped bass season as Mr. RubyRose is craving a whole baked striper.

                            P.S. I bought 4 of the fish plates and a big glass fish shaped serving plate at J.J. Newberry's 5 & 10 store when I was in high school in the 1960's. Had I known how much I would have used them over the years, I would have bought more of them.

                              Thanks, Ruby. That's a little out of my price range. Too bad. I wonder if I could substitute any other mild white fish with the same results?

                                You could use any type of fish fillets but these are fresh ones. If you use fish that's been previously frozen, most times it gets too watery and would probably be better fried rather than baked. If you want to try baking it with defrosted frozen fillets, I'd crank the oven up to 400 degrees.

                                      Yay for Allentown, too! Never thought of it as a seafood place, but you're starting a trend!

                                        Sounds good to me, Adjudicator, I like catfish. But the two people I live with won't eat freshwater fish -- said it tastes TOO fishy.

                                        They'll eat salmon, though. But no trout, etc. Bummer.

                                            Sure, ChopChop. The only difference in the one in the picture is that I used red instead of green pepper (green is better) because that’s what I had on hand and the quantities are half of the recipe. It’s good with venison too.

                                            CRANBERRY COLESLAW

                                            5 cups shredded cabbage
                                            1/2 cup almonds, toasted
                                            1 cup dried cranberries
                                            1/2 cup celery, diced
                                            1/4 cup chopped green onions, white and green parts
                                            1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper

                                            Dressing:
                                            1/2 cup mayonnaise
                                            1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
                                            1 tablespoon honey mustard
                                            1 tablespoon honey
                                            Salt and pepper

                                            Combine cabbage, almonds, cranberries, celery, green onions, and green pepper in a large bowl .

                                            Combine all dressing ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Pour dressing over slaw just before serving. Stir well.

                                              Those remind me of living in New Jersey when I caught flounder on a party boat out of Atlantic Highlands one spring day, got em fileted and cooked them when I got home. You can not beat fish that has been caught the day you eat it. I had enough filets that there were some left over for another meal, but they lacked the "punch" of the ones eaten the day they were caught.

                                                Very nice presentation. I got to get better with the pics. I was suppose to meet with Al to get educated with my new Canon but personal circumstances prevented. I wish I had it here in Houston so our premier photo expert (Mayor) could educate this old guy. I got the Canon with the image stabilizer due to the advice of Al.

                                                  Sundancer, you just have to start carrying your camera with you and start taking pictures. I got one of those cheapie Kodak easy share digital cameras two years ago and the more pictures I take, the better they seem to turn out, even though nowhere near a professional level. I think that's why some people post food pictures, both in restaurant reviews and cooking, to inspire others to take photos, go to Roadfood establishments, and enjoy cooking on many different levels.

                                                    RubyRose, I have a Kodak EasyShare, too. We really like it. Your photos always look great. The fish dinner looks wonderful.

                                                      That dinner looks wonderful. I love fish, wish I lived in Alaska somedays and was a fisherman so I could eat the freshest fishes.

                                                        Thanks for the receipe for the coleslaw. I don't eat green peppers so I will leave them out, but it sounds like a great coleslaw. The pan fried potatoes looked great too.

                                                        You are on your way to becoming just like JohnA

                                                          Man oh man. Those pictures are great. And to think that my dinner tonight is frozen chicken patties and frozen fries (dinner jump-up).

                                                            Rubyrose,

                                                            What a wonderful dinner. I really like the coleslaw which I tried last night, since I was lucky to have the ingredients on hand. I also like the idea of baking the fish with breadcrumbs, to make them more healthy than fried, my usual preference. I do not know how I missed this thread, when it first came out?

                                                            Great meal and pictures.
