Vera Cruz-Style Fish Our Way

Source: Vera Cruz-Style Fish Our Way

Well, with folks making their New Year’s Resolutions to eat well, I thought of this dish.  I make this often; it’s chock-full of good stuff.  I used Mahi-Mahi, but Cod is good too.  The recipe that I found originally, called for Red Snapper, but here in the middle of the desert, that proved to be quite the challenge.  I’ve plugged my recipe into one of those handy-dandy software programs to see what all we had here as far as for calories and the such, and this is what it came up with… not bad.

Do you see the fat content?  This recipe makes 2 good sized portions, and if you leave off the rice, *cough*, it’s less than 300 calories.  This could easily fit into almost any diet plan, I mean “different way of looking at food concept”.  You choose the fish that your household likes the best… ooohhhh, I just had a great idea!  A Seafood Vera Cruz, like maybe Shrimp or Mussels or how about a splurge using Lobster?  MMM!

ENJOY!
