Very Low Calorie Recipes: Sautéed Fish and Red Onions

HCG VLCD Recipes: Sautéed Fish and Red Onions

The original recipe by Claudia Mason calls for Orange Roughy, however
any white fish can be used such as Tilapia, Cod, Mahi-Mahi,
Flounder, Haddock, etc. See the Weight Loss Guide or the Pocket Guide  for a complete listing of very low calorie, diet approved white fish.


  • 100g white fish
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh Tarragon, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • Grissini breadstick or Melba toast
  • 1 serving fruit of choice

Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Season the fish with
salt, pepper, and onion powder then place the fish in the pan and lower
the heat to medium-low. After about a minute, flip the fish and add the
garlic, tarragon, and onion slices. You may need to use a few
tablespoons of water or diet safe broth to keep the fish and onions from
drying out while cooking. Sauté until the onions are soft, about 5
minutes. After putting the fish and onions on your plate, sprinkle with a
little more Tarragon and serve with your Grissini breadstick or Melba
toast and fruit.
