Holiday was fun, the calorie intake reached an all-time high and so we are going on a detox diet. The following recipe is low in calories and high in flavor!
We had our Raskin’s fish specialist butterfly a rainbow trout that we stuffed with a tasty veggie mix. The butterflying technique leaves you with the whole fish sans bones (great for stuffing). Rainbow trout is mild in flavor and will adapt to any other ingredients you cook it with.
We added pastrami lox pieces in our stuffing. That unexpected item adds a delicious taste to the dish.
To keep it low in calorie we used cauliflower rice as part of the stuffing. It is available in the refrigerated produce section at most supermarkets or very easily made in your own kitchen.
(Pulse a cauliflower head till it reaches a rice like consistency pulsing it for 15 seconds in batches)
