The next time you find yourself standing in a grocery store, and some guy with a camera loudly asks if there are any home cooks around, and you are the only person there, I say, GO FOR IT!
This happened, and my dream of becoming a Food Network Star was at my fingertips…well, sort of.
What started as a plan to cook a quiet dinner, soon blossomed into an incredible cocktail party with our amazing friends pitching in, all the while our PR guy, Larry from TellYourVision.Net, filmed us from start to finish!
And, here is the recipe you have all been waiting for!
STEVE’S PAN FRIED FLORIDA GROUPER BITES
•1 lb fresh Wild Florida Grouper Fillets, washed & patted dry
•2 organic eggs, beaten
•2 C. Cheez-it crackers ground fine
•2 C. Parmesan cheese grated
•1/2 C. Organic Olive Oil
•In a food processor, blend Cheez-it crackers with the parmesan cheese.
•Cut the grouper into 1” bite size pieces.
•Heat the oil over medium high heat.
•Dip each fillet in egg and toss in the cracker/cheese mixture to coat.
•Place each fillet into the hot oil taking care not to over crowd the fish.
•Cook for 3-4 min. per side until golden brown.
•Remove and serve immediately with your favorite tarter sauce, cocktail sauce or mustard sauce.
Thanks for swinging by! Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more great recipes and entertaining ideas from our Naples friends.
Cheers to sharing celebrations with love.
