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*
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!
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.
This simple to prepare recipe was submitted to Cooking Light many years ago by a subscriber. It has a very tasty sauce, and the chicken is wonderfully tender. Serve with your favorite rice - we like lemon-flavored rice.
This is a wonderful lower-fat restaurant-quality dish that is easy to make, I also like to add in a few tablespoons of capers and cook with the lemon glaze if you are a lover of capers then add them in as it really adds to the flavour of this dish --- this lemon sauce is not a heavy creamy sauce which is what makes this dish lower in fat, it is more like a glaze that soaks into the chicken, and I would strongly suggest to double or even triple the glaze I most always do, and please be certain to use only dry breadcrumbs as fresh will not stick to the chicken as well --- this is *very* good!
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.

"An inexpensive cut of pork becomes rich and tender when braised. Creamy beans make the dish hearty and satisfying."
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. :)
Instead of being fried, like Chinese egg rolls, these appetizers are served fresh, letting the textures and flavors of the vegetable and shrimp filling shine through.
Serve with the easy dipping sauce.
