May 29- Greatest Hits (your past favorite)
June 12- Weight Watcher's Edition
As many of you know, I'm trying really hard to eat healthier and exercise to get my high cholesterol levels down. I have a follow-up appointment with my doctor in July.
Recently the American Heart Association sent me a small paperback cookbook called, Light & Easy Recipes. I love it! The recipe I'm sharing with you today is from this cookbook and it's yummy!
Fish Fillets with Lemon Crumb Topping
2 medium lemons
4 flounder, snapper, or tilapia fillets (about 4 oz each)
2 slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
1/4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 425*F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
2. Quarter 1 lemon and set aside. Grate enough zest from the remaining lemon to measure 1/2 tsp. Set the zest aside. Cut the lemon crosswise into 8 slices.
3. Place 2 lemon slices side by side on the baking sheet. Place a fish fillet on the lemon slices. Repeat with the remaining lemon slices and fish, spacing the portions at least 2" apart.
4. In a food processor, pulse the bread to make coarse crumbs. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in the reserved lemon zest, garlic powder, cayenne, and paprika. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp olive oil. Stir gently to blend. Spoon over each fillet.
5. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the topping is browned. Transfer to four plates.
6. Drizzle the remaining 2 tsp olive oil over the fish. Serve with the reserved lemon wedges to squeeze over the fish.
Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe!
