We love fish made this way! It has an almost creamy texture, with a little bit of crunch from the crust. Not bland at all! Trust me! Serves 6.
2 pounds boneless skinless fish (I used cod)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
5 tsp Johnny's Garlic Spread and Seasoning
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Pour the olive oil over the fish, making sure to coat evenly.
In a bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Johnny's Garlic Seasoning and Parmesan cheese. In case you are wondering what Johnny's Seasoning is, this is it.
I got this from Costco, costs about $ 6.62. It's a big jar, and a little goes a long way. Can you tell I like buying things at Costco? Hah, yes, I do. If you can't find this at your local grocery store, you can just substitute regular garlic powder. This just has a unique taste and the garlic flavor is pretty pronounced.
Now coat the fish thoroughly with the mixture. Let the fish sit for about 10 minutes so the breading sets, and lay on a cookie sheet or baking pan. I personally like to line a cookie sheet in foil, then spray it with nonstick spray. Makes it easier to clean up afterwards. Like so.
Bake in a preheated 425F oven. The secret of good, non-soggy, crisp oven fried fish is baking it in a very hot oven. Get it good and hot. Now stick it in, and bake for about 15-20 minutes. And you are done.
About 3 points a serving. Awesome! Here shown with Family-Style Baked Red Potatoes, Butter Fried Corn and steamed Sugar Snap Peas. This whole plate comes up to about 10 points. You got room for dessert!
This takes only about 20 minutes and my family loves it. My husband loves crab and curry brings out the flavor! Try it, it'll knock your socks off! Can be served hot or cool. Serves 6.
2 pounds Imitation Crab, cubed (if you want to use real crab, yes you can!!)
1 bell pepper, sliced, your choice color
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
8 oz pasta of your choice (I used Rigatoni)
For the Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise (I used Fat Free Miracle Whip)
3 tsps curry powder
1 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp parsley
Prepare pasta as directed on the box. Drain and set aside.
Spray a pot with nonstick spray and saute the bell pepper, onion and garlic till tender. Add the Crab and mix together well. Cover and let simmer on medium for about 10 minutes or so.
While the crab is simmering, in a small mixing bow l, mix together the mayonnaise, curry powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and parsley. Blend well.
In a big bowl, mix together the pasta, crab and dressing. Toss together, making sure everything is incorporated.
Only 7 points a serving! Dig in, and I mean it!
