Quick Summer Meal

Many of us are experiencing Summer; the time for beaches, pools, picnics and grilling. This recipe appeared in our June newsletter and I love quick, easy, one dish meals. While grilling is ideal for summer weather, this baked entrée is one of the healthiest and simplest recipes around, enabling you to spend more time at the beach, while looking great, too.  This would be perfect for the Ninja cooking system (it’s my new kitchen appliance crush).

Baked Fish and Vegetables

4 white fish filets (fresh or frozen, total of 16 to 20 oz.)
16 oz. mixed vegetables (frozen)
1 small onion (diced)
1 tsp. lemon juice (or fresh lemon, sliced thin)
1 tbsp. parsley flakes (dried or freshly chopped)
4 10×12 in. sheets of aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Separate and place fish filets in center of each tin foil square. Combine frozen vegetables and diced onion in a bowl and mix. Spoon vegetables around filets. Sprinkle with lemon juice (or top with lemon slice) and add parsley on top. Fold and bake for 10 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings. Each serving provides 360 calories, 12g total fat, 2g saturated fat, 120mg cholesterol and 130mg sodium.
