food fail?

food fail?

i’m trying to eat healthier, which includes me trying to eat more fish.¬†Tonight i tried to fry fish and failed. fish fry fail.
anyway, i bought frozen cod from walmart, which may have been my first mistake. the second mistake may have been using cast iron instead of my non-stick pan (which does wonders with chicken tenders!). thirdly, fail may have been  exacerbated by the flakiness of panko bread crumbs versus real bread crumbs.
the fish may have been saved if i’d seasoned it enough, but even a liberal shaking of old bay seasoning in the panko didn’t do anything for the fish.
so basically i plopped on my plate tonight some gross, slimy cod surrounded by greasy fried panko crumbs. i dipped it in cocktail sauce (aka: ketchup mixed with dijon mustard), which sort of covered up the blahness of the whole ordeal.
thankfully i had a huge sweet potato on the side, which helped things immensely (i eat them sans brown sugar [but yes to the butter], so healthy, right?).
ultimately what really helped was me going to the store aftewards and buying a pint of half baked. that stuff will right any food wrongs. (i just checked again, and whew, no corn syrup.) so much for healthy.
