I cooked fish last night for dinner.
I don’t know a lot about the make and model of the fish I cooked except that it was white, and I bought it at Trader Joe’s. As you probably already know, things are better when you buy them at Trader Joe’s. That’s because Trader Joe’s refuses to sell any food that contains unnecessary, unhealthy additives like preservatives, chemicals, poison or lint.
Sure, you do have to put up with bread that gets stale before you unload it from your Trader Joe’s nylon-mesh-don’t-be-a-pig-about-the-environment bag you purchase every time you go because you keep forgetting to take one with you; but it’s a small price to pay for Trader Joe’s Lint-Free 7,643-Grain Bread containing 67 grams of fiber in every bite once it’s swallowed, god willing.
Anyway, I did a really nice job on the fish I cooked last night. First, I took it out of the package. I find this is always a good idea. Then, I put together a mixture of flour and some spices I had sitting around. My spices sit around practically 24/7. I’ve made peace with the fact they will never amount to much.
Some of the spices I used were salt, pepper, lemon pepper, Season All, garlic pepper, garlic salt . . . well; basically I used every spice I owned. (Luckily I was out of cinnamon.)
Then I heated up some olive oil in a big frying pan, smothered the fish (don’t worry it was already dead) in the spices and threw it in the frying pan when it got sizzling hot.
I wasn’t very nice to it really.
I browned both sides and added water, covered it and let it steam on low for about 15 minutes. Then I squeezed lemon juice all over it and stuck it in the oven for a half hour more.
I took it out of the oven and frosted it with a nice healthy layer of cocktail sauce.
Well, sir! We absolutely loved it.
Who knew me and 37 were such fish connoisseurs!
Until next time . . . I love you
