This is a yummy, yummy light meal. I developed this to counteract my Mexican cravings on Weight Watchers. It is 4 points according to the Recipe Builder. Top it with salsa, which is free, or add some sour cream. Just make sure you count the extra points.
This so easy-to-fix & lovely salad is from the Australian Women's Weekly *Best Seafood Recipes* cookbook. I see it as an ideal luncheon entree or the perfect starter salad course for a spec romantic dinner for 2, but it can be expanded easily to serve 4 (Time does not include time to cook & cool prawns). *Enjoy*
I originally got the idea for this out of Sunset Magazine, and have tweaked it to suit my family and friends. It makes a great OAMC entree for the grill, or to take camping. I've used this on chicken and salmon as well as beef, just reducing the marinating time appropriately. Don't use ground (dry) ginger in this- the flavor is not the same.
Delicious served with hot rice. This recipe works better if you use flattened skewers so that the meat doesn't roll when you turn it. Overnight chilling not included in preparation time. Use a spacer between the grill grates and the skewers to prevent meat sticking or spray the grates liberally with cooking spray before heating the grill.
A great marinade for steak!!! (You can even use it for chicken for Pollo Asada!) I use skirt steak for flap meat, but any thin cut steak would work. This recipe is for up to 4 pounds of meat. Cook time does NOT include marinating time.
Adapted from a recipe in 'Terrific Chicken: 100 great meals in minutes'. If you're craving crispy chicken, this Mediterranean-style chicken is fairly quick to make and relatively low-fat! Serve it with a pasta or rice side dish and your favourite salad greens.
I love this meal for it's ease and down home goodness. You can make this one dish meal in less than 30 minutes. It's pretty too! You could substitute chopped carrots for the red pepper if you'd prefer. It reminds me of chicken pot pie without the 'pie'. Comfort! It makes A LOT so you can serve half of it and freeze the other half for a quick dinner some other night.

If you enjoy spice, go ahead and throw some in!! This recipe is also versatile in terms of what veggies you like. Have fun with it. :)
Halibut has a delicate flavor and firm texture. Overcooking can dry it out. So Pan searing and basting with the oil/ butter mixture keeps it moist and flaky.
Pan searing adds a nice light crust to the outside of the halibut. Then into the oven to finish cooking.
Whether you are on the South Beach diet or not, the marinade for the fish is very tasty. These can be eaten on Phase I of the diet. So far I've tried these kabobs using tuna steak and I'll be trying it out on salmon next. This recipe is courtesy of the South Beach Diet book.
Well, JJ's at it again! Seems he hooked up with the McDaniel gang again and they couldn't wait for some of his tasty dishes. One of the McDaniel's had hooked up with a sweet little girl from Mexico named Carlita. Carlita just loved fiesta colors! On her clothing, In her home, and even in her food. Johnny came up with this yummy recipe just for her. Carlita was so happy that she did a Mexican hat dance for him!
This is a quick and easy meal suitable for the South Beach diet on a week night. The amount of spices listed here give the chicken a very mild kick. This is not a hot dish, although you could make it so if you wished.
