The Krutz Family Fish Recipe

“Over the years, dinner preparation at our house has become a team effort.  When our family started growing, Bryan had to start helping me in the kitchen.  He learned how to cook fish from his Mother.  Living at the beach we have such great access to fresh fish, so a couple years ago we decided we would take advantage and start cooking fish once a week.” -Cindy

“I also have to give Bryan credit for doing a great job of keeping up with our yard.  We finally got to plant spring plants last week.  He added petunias to our pots…love the red!”

“We love asparagus and it goes so well with fish.  So for my greens tonight, I chose asparagus. Wash and snap the ends off of the asparagus.  Add a little touch of olive oil to the pan and sprinkle asparagus with garlic salt and lemon pepper seasonings.  Of course I am a Mississippi girl so I add a touch of butter and also a little bit of water.  Cook on medium low heat for approximately 15 minutes flipping regularly. ”

“One of the best tricks Bryan learned from his Mom, is to give the fish a bath in lemon water.  Simply squeeze half of a lemon into a gallon zip lock and fill it half way up with water.  Shake the fish up for a few seconds and remove and allow to dry.  This freshens the fish up.”

“For a side dish we made cheese grits. In 4 cups of water cook 1 cup of quick grits until done.  Add 1 stick of butter and 1 1/2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese.  Then add the seasonings; 1 teaspoon of garlic power, 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste.  Beat two eggs and add milk to make one cup.  Remove grits from heat and add milk and egg mixture.  Pour in a greased dish and sprinkle top with more cheddar cheese.  Cook for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. ”
