This is one of my favorite, simple recipes. I usually make it according to the basic recipe, but I found it's also good with chopped sugar free sweet pickles and a little Emeril's Essence.

Optional additions (count additional carbs):

Chopped hard boiled eggs
A little lemon juice
Diced green or red peppers
Chopped dill pickles
Chopped green onions
Chopped pickled jalapeno peppers
Diced cucumber
Chopped olives
Cashews or other nuts

DINNER

Fish & Vegetables in Foil

1 piece heavy duty foil, 12 x 18"
1 frozen fish fillet (no need to thaw, if thin)
2/3 cup frozen or fresh vegetables, your choice (cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers, etc.)
Salt and pepper
Herbs and spices, as desired
Butter

Place foil on a baking sheet. Spray with non-stick spray. Place fish in center of foil; season. Place frozen vegetables around fish; season. Dot all with butter. Fold up foil, sealing well, but leaving room for air to circulate. Bake at 450 for 30 minutes. Open foil carefully to avoid getting burned by the steam.

Makes 1 serving

Per Serving: 222 Calories; 13g Fat; 23g Protein; 5g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

(A mixture of cauliflower and yellow squash is very good!)

2 cups iceberg or leaf lettuce, 2 ounces
4 small bits of tomato
1 slice smoked turkey, diced
1 ounce Swiss cheese, diced
1 hard-boiled egg, sliced
