Fish and Seafood

Fish or Shellfish at any meal can be substituted for chicken, turkey  or veggie protein (see list).
Q: When you specify tuna fish on the Diet, does it have to be water-packed?
A: No, but if the tuna fish is oil-packed, pour off all the oil you can. Do the same with canned salmon. Then rinse in a colander or strainer under cold water and shake dry. (p.40)

Q: When I have tunafish or canned salmon, can I cut celery into it?
A: Yes, if it makes it tastier for you, add celery, and carrots, chopped parsley, squeeze in some lemon or lime juice - use your creativity.(p.40)

Putting carrots & celery in with the tuna fish is of no consequence. (p.140)

When shellfish is listed, you can enjoy:
shrimp, scallops, lobster, mussels, clams, oysters, crab, calamari, etc...the choice is up to you!

When fish is listed, you can enjoy:
orange roughy, trout, bass, sole, flounder, halibut, herring, sardines,
red snapper, salmon, whitefish, swordfish, tuna, mahi mahi, etc...the choice is up to you!

Would some-one kindly clarify Wed. lunch 'tuna fish or salmon salad' for me? Does that mean the fish and a salad or is tuna/salmon with a lemon and vinegar dressing simply called 'a tuna salad'?
You can use a can of water-packed or fresh tuna or salmon, and serve atop a bed of lettuce with diced cucumber, red onion, shredded carrot, sliced tomato, chopped celery, and parsley or dill. Mix in a little red wine vinegar and dijon mustard and you'll have a delicious and magnificent tuna or salmon salad! There is also this recipe for a Supreme Salad.

Members Suggest:

For Wednesday lunch, Prepare tunafish or salmon salad by mixing with diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers, diced red onion, lemon juice. Let sit to release juices, then serve on a bed of salad greens with sliced cumbers. On keep trim use a dressing made with dill, plain yogurt and lemon.

You can also mix pickles into your tuna for a moist, tangy meal.

Shrimp with sugar free cocktail sauce

Use the Reynolds Wrap commercial idea and sealed your fish in
aluminum foil along with fresh herbs, lemon, and seasoning, sometimes vegetables...then you seal it up and bake in the oven for 15 minutes on 350. Comes out light and flaky and very nicely flavored.

garlic and tomatoes in Pam No-Fat Olive Oil Cooking
Spray and then adding the fish coated in cayenne, paprika, and bread crumbs (from the toasted protein bread) and that comes out nicely. You just have to use a medium heat, or else the spray dissolves really

Place the boned filets in aluminum foil with a wedge of lemon, pearl onions, 1/2 clove garlic, and fresh herb sprigs. Seal, and bake on pan in oven for 15 mins on 325 degrees.

Brush the filet with egg whites and press firmly into the crumbs of protein bread (toasted twice & mixed with your favorite seasonings, like cayenne) sautee over medium flame using non stick cooking spray (you can use butter flavor if you prefer) for 10-15 minutes.
