Greek Red Snapper
We tried out a new Mediterranean Diet recipe-- Greek Red Snapper with Potatoes (296 cal). This was an easy recipe to assemble. It simply requires layering the various ingredients in a Pyrex dish. With the slices of tomato and yellow pepper it is colorful. The challenge was finding the red snapper. It is not regularly offered in my local grocery store. I substituted Swai.

It calls for cooking the assembled casserole for 1 hour and 20 minutes. This is a long time for a week night. I think it is becasue of the potatoes. Nothing else requires that much time to cook. I think it makes sense to brown the potatoes for 10 -15 minutes in a skillet, sprayed with olive oil cooking spray, before layering in the casserole. I think it will improve the taste of the potato and make it more attractive looking in addition to diminishing the cook time in the oven by half. I am planning on trying this out next time.

To complete the meal I added a Greek-style Kale Salad for 79 calories. Total calories for the meal were 375. Everyone enjoyed the meal and gave a thumbs up to prepare it again.
