I went kind of crazy tonight and made myself a seafood extravaganza. When I got home from being downtown all morning and noontime I came home and tackled my dishes. Ugh Sigh Grr. But I got through everything, every last dish, glass, silverware, utensil pots&pans. Scrubbed my stove, sink and countertops. Also washed 4 new big oval dinner platters I bought. These are like 15"x8".
That is what inspired my lust for seafood. I had to fill up one of these platters with a meal lol.
I proceeded to dirty 5 pans for 1 meal.
Took out 1/2# of shrimp, the big 16/20 ones so 8 was like 1/2#. Sauteed' them lemon pepper style. Same thing with some scallops I treated myself to. 16 to a pound for $9.99 but I hadn't had scallops in about 2 years. Took 8 of them and slow sauteed' them in like 1/2 teaspoon of canola oil and lots of butter. No spices I wanted to taste the scallops. The oil is used only so the butter doesn't burn, which even at low(er) temps can ruin the dish. Had a 6oz haddock fillet I dipped in beaten egg and rolled in finely crushed frosted flakes and deep fried. The sugar in the frosted flakes makes the fish crust over quickly and turn a beautiful golden brown quickly. You never want to overcook fish. Boiled a couple ears of some butter & sugar sweet corn in pan # 4, and in the oven I baked up 3 store bought jumbo clams casino. I have my air on it's 72 in here so I can run my oven.
