Skinny on Weight Watchers Friendly Cuban Style Fish
The original recipe called for Sea Bass; however any kind of mild white fish will work. I tried it once using frozen pollock and will us Alaskan halibut next time since it was on special at the local grocery store!
To lighten this up just a tad I cut back a little on the butter and olive oil, which you shouldn’t even notice since the dish is so full of flavor from all the other ingredients.
