A splash of lemon juice is a great way to perk up the flavor of foods, especially fish. A teaspoon of lemon juice has only 0.3 grams of carbohydrate.
1 small lemon
1 (2-ounce) jar diced pimiento, drained
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets (or other white fish fillets such as orange roughy, cod, or perch)
Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 teaspoon extraspicy salt-free herb-and-spice blend (such as Mrs. Dash)
Oregano sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Cut lemon in half. Squeeze juice from half of lemon (about 1 tablespoon) into a small bowl; set remaining lemon half aside. Add pimiento to juice, mixing well.
Place fillets in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Coat fish with cooking spray; sprinkle with herb-and-spice blend.
Spoon pimiento mixture evenly over fish. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. While fish bakes, cut remaining lemon half into slices to serve with fish. Garnish with oregano sprigs, if desired.
