I was hoping someone could give me some 411 on fish and cheese....

1. I haven't eaten alot of fish in my life and would like to try some new things....

Any recommedations for fish? Some of the fish I've tried before was fish sticks, whatever is in calm chowder, and fish in fish tacos. I don't know what kind of fish are in any these..

If you have a good/easy fish recipe for a fish newbie, please past it my way.

2. I know for the cauliflower pizza you can use low fat cheese. I was curious if someone can give me the cheese nutrition limits? How many calories, g of fat, g of carb?.

Any help will be greatly appreciated..

I like doing Italian baked fish. Haddock is the fish of choice since it is the least "fishy" tasting fish and is thick enough to hold up to the recipe..

I cut the fish in to approx 7 oz portions and make 2 at a time (they usually cook down to about 5.5 leaving room for the cheese in the protein count)..

Spray the bottom of the baking dish with a touch of no stick spray.

Put the fish in a baking dish/corning ware thing/glass brownie pan etc..

Cut up your favorite (lower water content veggies - I do pepper strips, onions, little garlic)-I then place the veggies (raw) - just slice the strips thin - on top of the fish. I then add about 3-4 tablespoons of a lower carb spaghetti sauce on top, cover w/foil and bake at 375-400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes - the fish should flake and be cooked - uncover the the dish, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of parm cheese on top, and then add about 1/4 -1/2 cup of mozz./or/provolone (low fat) cheese on top (depending on how big you did your fish) and put back in the oven until it is just starting to brown - uncovered....

This pretty much uses up your lean,,, but depending on how many vegies you put and have, you still have room for a side salad...

If you have Kroger stores in your area, check the seafood dept for frozen single serving packages of fish (Pollock, haddock, salmon) and scallops. Last week when I shopped, the packages were on sale 10 for $10. I have found that I need to cook 3 packages of the scallops and 2 packages of the fish to get the right amount for my "lean". Still, only $3 for a scallop dinner!.

I rinse/defrost the scallops in a colander using running cool water. Pat dry and throw under the broiler, maybe 7 minutes on each side.

My favorite fish is Alaskan Pollock. It is mild and almost sweet. I put 2 frozen servings in my Black and Decker food steamer for about 17 minutes. I use shake of True Lime for seasoning before steaming. Yum! Tasty and easy....

I am not sure of the limits for low fat cheese...

I buy bags of the cooked, frozen shrimp (more like prawn size) they defrost quick and stir fry well with veggies..

Q Lazzarus..

Comment #3

These all sound yummy... So next time I go to store for my lean ( I went today for greens) I'll look for Haddock or Pollock... Is Mahi Mahi allowed? people at work recommended it..

Comment #4

I forgot to ask are both haddock & pollock the leanest so 7oz or leaner, or lean?.

I think I'm going try stuffing them with spinach too :-)..

Cheese is on the meatless options list, but the amount you can have depends on the fat grams per oz. Moderate fat cheese (3-6g per oz) is allowed at 1 cup shredded=1 lean, no additional fat servings needed. Low fat cheese (1-1.5g per oz) is allowed at 1.5 cups shredded=1 lean, 1 healthy fat serving needed..

I buy a lot of Tilapia. It is a mild white fish and tastes delicious. It is commonly used in Fish Tacos!.

I saute it in a pan with Olive Oil and either coat the fish with Toasted Sesame Seeds, Dill/Garlic mixture or Lemon Pepper. Saute 4 minutes each side and Wall La your dish is done...
