Happy Anniversary with “Fish n Chips” Recipe

Four years ago to this exact day, I started the easiest thing I’d ever done in my journey to lose weight.
The shopping was over.
The planning was done.
I had meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
I woke up with a mentality of nothing to loose but weight!
As I am reminded of how different yet the same my life is on this very day,
I take a trip back to one of my favorite meals I made.
It includes two of my favorites – Fish and potatoes :)
It was passed down to me and quickly became a common addition to the weekly meal plan.
Fish n Chips (I love my hot sauce)

fish n chips
You will need:
For the fish:
2 4oz filets of Tilapia (or your choice of fish)
Olive oil spray
1/4 cup corn meal
Salt and pepper to taste
For the Chips:
2-3 red potatoes – diced
3 Tbsp – olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
or you can use my favorite Onion roasted potatoes
For the fish:
  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Rinse off the fish and spray with olive oil spray.
  3. Pour cornmeal into a zip-lock bag with salt and pepper.
  4. Add fish to zip-lock bag and shake shake shake.
  5. Once covered, place on a cookie sheet sprayed with olive oil spray also, and bake for about 20 minutes or until done, turning over once.
For the Chips
  1. Wash the potatoes and cut to desired likeness. I like mine diced but you can cut them long ways like fries. I also leave the skin on .
  2. Spray baking pan with olive oil spray and add the olive oil to the pan as well.
  3. Add the potatoes to the pan and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for about 35 minutes or until done.
Or you can use the recipe for the Onion roasted potatoes :) mmmm
Servings: 2 (double if you plan on sharing!)
Grab a plate and enjoy and meal free of guilt and full of yumminess!
So Happy Anniversary to me and Happy success to all of you! Make it a great week!
