fish filets/tartar sauce/slaw, low carb recipes

Good Morning beautiful healthy eating friends.
I'm painting.... feeling great! Very energized today!!
Gonna be a hot one here in Georgia today.
If you are in a hot area of the world, drink lots of water!!

I took fish filets out of the freezer for our dinner. Will bake with butter, lemon juice and Old Bay seasoning tonight on the grill on the porch. I just put all in a pan, just like if were baking it in the oven. The pizzas did great last night out there. This is my new favorite place to cook this summer!
Will make cole-slaw with chopped/shredded cabbage, mayonnaise, little vinegar, SF sweetener and some celery salt. Shredded a whole cabbage yesterday with my food processor, into angel hair. love it like this!

I also make an easy tartar sauce for my fish.
I don't measure much:
1 cup good mayonnaise
1/2 cup onion
1 big dill pickle
I just put that in the blender or food processor and blend till smooth.
pour into a jar and refrigerate. It gets thicker after it sits a while.

This is an old and simple recipe, I got it from my wonderful Aunt Velma.
She lived in Gulfport, Miss., right across the street from the ocean.
Their OLD
2 story home was washed away in
hurricane Camile in 1969 (I believe).
Anyway, she was an awesome cook. I spent several
wonderful summers there with
Aunt Velma, Uncle Elerbe and my cousins.
I learned a lot those years, roller skating down the sidewalks with Margie.
and eating great seafood that my Aunt Velma cooked.
They would get fresh shrimp at the docks when the shrimp boats came in.
She would boil them up with small red potatoes, onions, smoked sausage, corn on the cob. It's called "Low Country Boil".
They had a big screen porch on the side of the house,
with a picnic table on it.
We would line the table with newspaper.
She cooked and drained the low country boil, and spread it out on the table.
I can smell it now.
She sliced lemons and had the tartar sauce for dipping the shrimp into.
What wonderful memories!!!
What a wonderful family!



Hope you all have a great LOW CARB day. I'm still looking forward to this time next year!!

  1. I used to live in Gulfport! Back in another lifetime....
    Your menu plans sound great, and I want to learn to grill out too. I know that seems lame, just never did it myself before! We have a propane grill, will need to get hubby to "teach me" some!
