Crispy Baked Fish
1 pound white fish fillet, cut into 2" strips
1/2 c brown rice cereal, crushed (I have no idea what this is, or what I'm going to substitute for it, but that's how the recipe reads)
1/2 c panko bread crumbs (how I love this product)
1/4 c nutritional yeast (adds a cheesy flavor. hmmmmm I say sprinkle on some cheese...)
salt & pepper to taste
1 egg white
2 T milk
1/2 c all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 475. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and spray with the cooking spray. In a shallow dish, combine the cereal, pank, nutritional yeast and salt/pepper. In a second shallow dish, whisk the egg white, the egg and milk. In a third shallow dish, add flour.
Bread the fish strips by dredging in flour, then egg mixture and press into panko. Coat all the sides. Place on the rack and spray with cooking spray. Bake 10 or 15 minutes until breading is crunchy and the fish is opaque.
Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries
2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into fries
1 T cornstarch
2 T olive oil
salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 475. Spray the baking sheet with the cooking spray. In a large zip lock bag, add cornstarch and sweet potatoes. Seal and toss to coat. Drizzle olive oil over potatoes and use your hands to really coat them. Sprinkle with salt/pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
All that's missing from this meal is the wilted lettuce salad. My garden lettuce is ready to cut, so I am super excited about the first salad. My mother had what seemed like a huge garden. Lots of radishes, lettuce and cucumbers. They were busy people, my parents. They worked hard and played hard and were such good role models. I miss them...
Happy Father's Day!
