Make It Leaner
Instead of drizzling 1 tablespoon of oil over the carrots in Step 1, use just 2 teaspoons and save 20 calories and 2.5 grams of fat per serving. When serving, use only 1 teaspoon of the ginger-scallion sauce on each piece of fish and cut an additional 10 calories and 1 grams of fat.
Ginger-scallion sauce is a beloved Asian condiment, traditionally served on poached chicken, but it brings incredible flavor to pretty much anything and everything. Use any leftovers on scrambled eggs, seared tofu, a sandwich, or steak.
