Thankfully my daughter has a completely different body type to me (tall and skinny) but still I do not like to talk about diets, calories or fat in the house so when I have a fast day (500 calories) I need to be very careful about it.
Last night I cooked this fish dish for myself but for my daughter I topped the fish with pesto and she had the olives and tomatoes on the side (she is not a fan of capers). It took about 15 minutes maximum and was very simple.
Ingredients for 2 people:
200g green beans
2 pieces of skinless cod or haddock (around 300g)
Olive oil or fry light
1 tsp rosemary, chopped
30g green olives, pitted and quartered
2 tsp capers
8 cherry tomatoes, diced
Half a lemon, juiced
Preheat the grill and season the fish. Cook according to the instructions - mine took 12 minutes under a medium grill.
Prepare the tomatoes, capers, rosemary and olives.
About 5 minutes before the fish is ready, boil the green beans and then drain.
Then either spray some fry light (or if you are not counting calories add a tablespoon of olive oil) into a frying pan and add the olives, rosemary, tomatoes and capers for a couple of minutes. Season.
Squeeze in the lemon juice and let it bubble for a minute.
Then serve with the fish sitting on the beans and spoon over the sauce.
