    pepper
    2 cups
    shredded cabbage or lettuce
    2 cups

    Notes

    Cook fish:

    In a Skillet - Spray or lightly oil a skillet.  Add seasoned fish and cook over medium heat until flesh starts to appear white.  Turn fish over and cook until it flakes easily.

    In the Oven - Put seasoned fish in a baking pan and cover with foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven until fish flakes.

    Under a Broiler - Place seasoned fish on a broiler pan.  Broil several inches from the heat until the fish is opaque throughout and flakes easily.

     

    To make tacos instead of salad: Warm tortillas. Layer cabbage or lettuce, vegetables of your choice, and fish on the tortilla. Drizzle with ranch dressing and salsa. Fold in half.

    I boiled my fish and then marinated it in lime juice before adding it to a mix of tomatoes, corn, onions, peppers, grated carrots and avocado.  So tasty! No ranch needed!  What a great light meal for the summertime!
