Many of my family and friends are out of work right now. So to try to help out I invite them to a fish fry twice a month. I wouldn't be able to afford this without Sav-A-Lot. My menu consists of deep fried beer battered pollock, fresh fried sweet onion rings (also beer battered), home made twice fried thick cut french fries, home made hush puppies, a big pot of soup beans and lemon pies for dessert. This is by no means the healthiest of meals but an occasional indulgence during a time when folks can't afford to go out for their favorite fried fish. Almost all the ingredients come from Sav-A-Lot. It must be a hit because everyone keeps coming back for more!

Port Side Frozen Pollock Filets taste so good and fresh. The price can't be beat, either.
Here's my recipe for a delicious fish meal accompanied by sweet potato fries
Start with Port Side Frozen Pollock Filets. We love fish, so I figure one 16 ounce package is enough for 2 of us for one meal. You can't beat the price. Next, remove them from the package, rinse them and pat them dry with a paper towel. Sometimes they may need to sit and drain for a while, just make sure to do it in a cool place like your fridge. Put them in a plate with a couple paper towels under them, cover them with plastic wrap and allow them to drain for about 30 minutes.
When they're drained and dry, sprinkle both sides with Marcum Lemon Pepper to taste. You won't need to add salt since the lemon pepper has it already.
Next, take 2 tablespoons of Bramley's Orange Marmalade or Bramley's Peach Preserves. Add 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the marmalade (preserves), and 1 tablespoon of water. You can also add 1 teaspoon of Jade Dragon Soy Sauce. Using a fork or wisk, mix it all together to form a thick sauce that you can later brush on the fish. You can adjust the thickness using a bit of water or a bit more marmalade. Now you'll need a baking sheet or pan, sprayed with cooking spray (oil) or brushed with oil to prevent the fish from sticking. Spray each side of the fish with cooking spray or just pour a bit into a bowl and lightly dredge the fish through it. Arrange the fish on the baking sheet or pan. I always put a pan of hot water in the oven also to keep the fish moist. Be sure to remember that it's in there when you're done and that it's scalding hot.
Preheat your oven to 350F, and place the fish on the center rack, let cook for 10 minutes. Carefully slide the rack out and turn the filets over, then brush the tops of each filet with the marmalade glaze. Let the fish continue to cook for 5-10 minutes or until opaque white and easily flaked with a fork.
As a simple side, try O'Days Mac 'n Cheese and the veggies of your choice. T.J. Farms Sweet Potato Fries also make a good meal with Party Treats Ice Cream Sandwiches for dessert. These make a fast, inexpensive, nutrious meal and couldn't be much easier to make!
