Easy Poached Cod with Zucchini Spaghetti


This filling but light dish, is an amazing 200 calories. For a 6oz portion of Cod, there are a mere 148 calories. The remaining vegetables and slither of butter, barely add up to 50 calories.

So Easy
This is by far the easiest way I have found to cook fish.  Just throw everything on parchment paper with your vegetables and fish, drizzle a dash of white wine, butter and herbs, and bake.  I have had many unsuccessful ventures with fish, but this method always seems to turn out soft, succulent and perfectly cooked. Here is another easy cod dish that is only 160 Calories, Wild Fish Poached in Lime Consomme With Wilted Baby Spinach.

So Fast
The flavors infuse together delightfully in the pouch, and you are left with  fish full of flavor, with no marinating. This entire dish took me just 10 minutes to prepare.  Very low calorie, easy to prepare and very healthy. How often do you need a dish that can be prepared and cooked, start to finish, in just 30 minutes? Quite often I am sure.  Well here is the answer.

I also have to recommend a  Spiral Vegetable Slicer. I just bought one from Amazon, (free shipping) and I am thrilled with it.  There are so many different dishes to make with it, and I have only used zucchini so far.  When zucchini is prepared this way it is so much like pasta, it’s almost unbelievable. Baked, crunchy and spicy shoestring fries next!!
