Well, ladies, I thought I might start posting some recipes from the Belly Fat to Belly Flat book. If you’re not inclined to buy the book, you can enjoy some of the recipes on me. I will try to post a new on each week.
I’ve always said that if forced to survive on fish and vegetables the rest of my life, I wouldn’t complain - provided I always had a caraf of my favorite red wine handy.
If you’re in a hurry and want something easy, tasty and good for what ails ya, this will do the trick.
Baked Fish with Basil
Organic nonstick cooking spray
6 6-oz fish filets
1 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 T minced garlic
1 T lemon juice
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 lemon, sliced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place fish filets in baking dish that you’ve sprayed with organice cooking spray. Combine basil, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix well and spoon evenly over fish. Add salt & pepper. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lemon slices and serve. Makes 6 servings.
