Healthy Mexican Recipes: Salsa Fish Foil Packet Dinner

It was a fish themed day today. I started the day at the beach. My favorite place on earth. Went to sushi for lunch (well sashimi 'cause you guys know I don't do rice) and ended the day with this super easy, super yummy dish...

Shelly's Salsa Fish Packet

1 fillet of Halibut (any firmer white fish will do: Cod, Tilapia, Orange Roughy)
1-2 Summer Squash, chopped
a generous dollop (enough to cover fish) of Fresh Salsa or Pico de Gallo (the kind you have to keep refrigerated at all times)
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
a wedge of Lime
2 Tablespoons White Wine
Aluminum foil

Place all ingredients in center of a piece of heavy duty foil (if you are using the $1 store stuff double it) Fold the foil over and seal each packet.

You can eat it as is (what I do) or for those that want some added carbs or for the non-ops in your household you can serve with warm corn tortillas for making tacos.

Hi I was just wondering if you could put on your quick tips how to find the amount of protein, fat, carbs, etc. in your recipes.

Hey Mary,

Go to fitday.com and enter your ingredients in a new day, add the totals and divide by the # of servings you get. That's what I do but you know change one ingredient and the #'s are off so I leave that up to you guys.

Michelle "Shelly" said...
