Halloween is coming soon, and wouldn’t you like to make your family a little treat for the holiday!  Well, I have a recipe for you that my friends over at Sea Pak pointed out to me.  I tried it last night, and it’s soooo cool, and soooo easy to make.  Nothing to fancy, and quick to make & they taste so good, so very moist not dry like some heat & serve fish. 

Available beginning this month at Walmart’s nationwide, Popcorn Fish.  Popcorn Fish is lower in saturated fat and calories than other popular brands of fish sticks.  It’s made without high fructose corn syrup or MSG and is bursting with flavor.

Today to share with all my readers, I have some recipes for you to try with this new product.  

Pumpkin Patch Salad

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes
Makes: 4 large salads or 6 side salads

1 package (22 oz) SeaPak Popcorn Fish
1-2 heads of green leaf lettuce
2 cucumbers
1 red bell pepper
1 bag sliced carrots or 2 large carrots peeled and sliced on the diagonal
Dressing of choice
Preheat oven to 450°.  Bake Popcorn Fish for 14 minutes or until full cooked. Cut green lettuce and portion into 4 bowls. Slice cucumbers and place between lettuce and the bowl to form the fence around the pumpkin patch. Cut red bell pepper into strips.  Slide one strip into the corners of the dish to form fence posts. Tuck carrots slices into the salads in front of the cucumber slices.  Add Popcorn Fish to the top of the salad to make the pumpkins. Serve with dressing of choice.
See I told you!  Now doesn’t that sound scrumptious?    Would you like another recipe?  Check this one out!

Witchs Fingers.jpg
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 14 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

2 packages (8.2 oz) SeaPak Tempura Shrimp
1 red bell pepper
1 lb fresh asparagus spears
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Garlic salt
Preheat oven to 450°.  Bake Tempura Shrimp for 12 to 14 minutes according to package instructions. Remove from oven and cut off tails. Make a small slice in opposite side of the shrimp to insert the “Witch’s Finger.” To create the “Witch’s Finger,” wash bell pepper and remove top and bottom. Remove seeds from pepper. Cut pepper into thin strip, cutting one end at a point. Strips should be approximately 1 x ½ inch. Insert bell pepper strips into shrimp. For the “Dragon Tails,” wash the asparagus and trim tough edges off stalks. Place in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil; toss until coated.  Arrange the asparagus in a single layer in the baking dish and sprinkle with garlic salt.  Bake for 9-10 minutes at 450° or until desired level of tenderness.

Isn’t that spooktacular?  Well, all I know is that my kids wouldn’t eat anything, but fish sticks when they were little, so I didn’t buy anything, but… maybe a little tuna now and then.  Now that they’re all grown, and have children of their own I can buy whatever I want and I LOVE FISH!  Enjoy the recipes, and of course there are tons more at www.SeaPak.com
