    Haddock With A View (KISS)


    Mrs Bear brought me some Haddock to make, because she was going to a Church Bingo thingy.
    She knows I like to make some sort of Fish any time she’s not around, because she doesn’t eat any fish or seafood.

    So I figured I’d go with the "KISS" method.
    I just threw a bunch of Butter in a pan & dropped the Haddock Fillets in, and flipped them over a few times until they looked good to me.
    They sure carried a lot of water inside, because if you look at the Picture in the Pan, they look to be almost floating, and the only thing I put in the pan was Butter & Fish!!
    I didn’t feel like making any Veggies, so I just threw some Pickled Red Beets on the plate along with a glob of my favorite “Tartar sauce”.

    I took this into the Living Room, and parked my Butt in my LazyBoy, so I could enjoy the view out my front windows.

    The leaf colors are real pretty this time of year.


    Thanks for dropping by,

    Bear

    It sure looks appetizing bear, simple and tasty. When I was younger and went camping on the lake with friends we'd catch a mess of brookies and wrap them in foil, stuffed with butter, and toss them into the campfire. They made a great meal. It also paired well with the assortment of Boone's Farm that we brought along.

    Point for sure

    Looks good. Haddock is the only fin fish I can get locally. Frozen but good stuff. I have to wonder if some brands get a Phosphate soak before freezing. This would increase the weight and result in all the water in the pan...JJ

    Can't really say I have heard of that but it does look good. I like those colors better than our white snow.

    Looks good to me John. I truly understand your situation. Miss Linda always keeps some salmon steaks individually frozen for me too cook up--when she's not home to smell it.
    Your fall colors are real nice. About all we get is yellows. The only trees around here that differ are the tamaracks.

    Thank You Jimmy!!
    Yup---I think you're right. I had the same thing with a bag of Whiting, only they were even soggy!
    I think I have another bag of these Haddock Fillets. I'll see what it says on the bag, when I see it again.
    At least these were still good---Not like the Soggy Whiting fillets.

    Thank You Jim!!
    Like I told JJ, I gotta check the bag to see what's what.
    It was Great, but Too much water!

    LOL---We had our first snow here today, but not enough to stick so far.
    Probably is often too cold where you're at for snow?!?!?!
    Our Beautiful colors are just about all gone now.

    My "Miss Linda" was a cheap date, back in 1968, because she didn't eat Lobster Tail & other Seafoods, but then I introduced her to Prime Rib!!!

    Exactly---I should have left her continue to consume what was then her favorite restaurant meal----"Breaded Veal Cutlet", which was one of the cheapest meals served, right next to "Hot Roast Beef Sammy with Gravy".

    Oh Well----At least I can make my own now, which are much better and they don't cost between $18 and $40 a plate.
