Here fishy fishy......

Simple baked fish Posted by Picasa

With our new way of eating( weight watchers), comes the need for menu planning. I have to plan our dinners in advance so I know how many points we can eat thru the day. Yesterday, when I was at the store getting a few things for our dinner, I saw some really nice fish that was on sale. I decided to use a simple preparation that was served to us at the Egullet Heartland Gathering that was held in Ann Arbor in July. I took a nice filet of fish( lake trout for Robin, white fish for me) and added some sliced mushroom, 1/2 tbls of butter each, white wine and fresh herbs. Lemon juice and sliced topped it off. I seasoned with salt and lots of freshly ground pepper. I wrapped each piece in heavy duty foil and baked at 400 for about 20 min. I also made Cooking Light's squash rice casserole. We still have a lot of zucchini growing, so I took advantage of that. I've made this casserole many times before, always subbing brown rice for the white. This time I used a little cottage cheese( in place of all the sour cream) Yummy, the perfect light end of summer meal.
