Tuscan Snapper

½ cup chopped tomato

6 pitted black olives

1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley

2 teaspoons olive oil

¾ pound snapper fillets

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chop tomato, olives and parsley together. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Place the snapper fillets in the skillet to brown for 2 minutes. Turn and sprinkle cooked side with salt and pepper to taste. Spoon tomato mixture over snapper. Cover with a lid and saute 4 minutes or until the flesh is opaque, not translucent. Makes 2 servings.

Per serving: 232 calories

Garlic Rosemary Potatoes

1 pound russet or Idaho potatoes, diced (about 3 ½ cups)

2 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried

2 medium garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons water

2 teaspoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Wash potatoes and do not peel or dry. Cut into ½-inch pieces. Place in a microwave-safe bowl and toss with rosemary, garlic and 2 tablespoons water. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove and stir. Return to microwave and cook on high 4 minutes. The potatoes should feel soft when a knife is inserted. If not, microwave another minute. Remove and let stand 1 minute. Drizzle with olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss well. Makes 2 servings.
