I've been waiting all summer for this and I don't have a recipe ready!
Hmmm. How about pan-fried flounder (or any mild white fish) and steamed
yellow squash and zucchini?
I love Zatarain's fish fry coating. It's slightly spicy. Dip the fish in
buttermilk. If you don't have buttermilk you can make your own by adding 1
Tbs. white vinegar to a cup of milk. Dip the fish in the milk, then dredge
it in the fish fry coating. (Barring having Zatarain's you can use a blend
of 2 parts cornmeal, 1 part flour, salt & pepper and optional, a little
ground cayenne pepper for some heat.) Place the coated fish on a sheet of
waxed paper to set. Heat a little bit of oil (you want a neutral oil like
vegetable oil or corn oil, NOT olive oil) in a skillet. Pan fry the fish
until golden brown on each side, turning carefully. The fish is done when
it flakes easily (and it will fall apart, so use a wide spatula!)
In the meantime, you'll have sliced the squash and placed it in a steamer
basket over boiling salted water. Sprinkle some basil or an Italian herb
blend over the squash. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for
about 20 minutes until the squash is fork tender.
Delicious dinner that doesn't include SPAM!
