Spice up your friday fish night by making these great low fat fish burrito’s (1 burrito and side salad is 5 ww points).
.5 lb Snapper (or any white fish) skin removed
A little under a ¼ cup of green cabbage
A little under a ¼ cup chopped white onion
A little under a ¼ cup chopped english cucumber
1.5 tablespoons of lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
A low sodium and low calorie salsa
A few bits of chopped pineapple (optional)
Weight Watcher’s tortilla ( I had one and my husband had 2)
Make the cabbage slaw: Thinly slice the cabbage, add onion and cucumber; squeeze juice of 1 lime over the top and toss; add salt and pepper to taste; let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat a non-stick baking pan over medium heat, add a tiny bit of olive oil if needed. I used my stone wear dish and did not need to use oil. Add Snapper and brown on one side, turn snapper over and put pan in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until snapper is flakey and cooked through. Flake cooked halibut into a bowl and serve with warmed weight watchers tortillas, cabbage slaw, pineapple bits and salsa.
Since I only made on burrito and used only half the fish I made a side burrito salad with out the tortilla.
Here’s another Hungry Girl inspired meal. Extremely easy to make and again the kids and hubby will love it. Once again I was lucky enough to find this recipe on the web. Please click here for the recipe. I say inspired because I had an extra ounce of chicken I had to account for and I topped it with a tablespoon of low fat cheese. The total point value for the picture above (and below) is 5 points. The recipe, if followed to the letter is 3 WW points. My husband loved it so much he made me mark it as a definite meal to make again. If you’re into the cook books, this recipe can be found in the Hungry Girls’s 200 under 200 cookbook. There was so much food I could not stuff it all in my pita so I deconstructed it to eat it. My hubby on the other hand stuffed what he could in the pita and used the rest as a side dish. Enjoy my foodie followers.
I am a sucker for chips and salsa and if you are too, I have a great guilt free recipe for you to enjoy.
1 Weight Watcher Pita
1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
Mrs. Dash salt-free garlic and herb spice
Salsa around 20 calories per serving.
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
Take one full pita and cut into 8 triangles. Unfold and split the triangles for a full 16 pieces. Next place a tsp of the oil on a plate. I then brushed the chips with the oil on the plate (I used half the oil on the plate). I then sprinkled the pitas with the salt free garlic and herb spice and a light sprinkle of seasoning salt. I then baked the chips for 6 mins at 400 degrees in the oven. I placed 2 tablespoons of salsa in a small dish and dug in. OMG these were amazing. If you are following the old point system it’s 3 WW points for the whole serving. The only issue I had was making sure I had a few pita chips before my husband ate them all.
Beef and Bean Chile Verde – This has got to be the EASIEST chile recipe ever (30 mins to prepare). The only change I made to the recipe was the green salsa. Instead I used Western Family Classics Fire Roasted Tomato Salsa. This is the MOST AMAZING salsa I have ever had. WHY?? it’s not sweet, low in sodium and low calories. It’s only available at Save on Foods.
For 1.5 cups it’s a whopping 6 WW points. To all my foodie followers.. this is a must try recipe… I hope you all enjoy it as much as Mel and I have.. HUSBAND APPROVED…
