Baked Tilapia and Lemon Pie

I'm thinking about hosting my linky party to share our Weight Watchers recipes on Wednesdays since that's the day I go weigh in.      Now when I say "WW" recipes, it doesn't necessarily have to BE a WW recipe, but just a good, healthy, low-fat recipe that you would like to share with all of us who are trying to eat better and in my case, lose some pounds.  
So tonight here's what we had:
Baked Tilapia
4 Tilapia fillets (2 small fillets per person - one for supper and one for lunch tomorrow)
I Can't Believe It's Butter spray butter
Garlic powder
Seasoned salt

Place tilapia fillets in glass dish sprayed with Pam (or other cooking spray)
Squirt butter over fillets and then sprinkle with garlic powder and seasoned salt
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until fish is cooked through
For a little added flavor, I sprinkle a very small amount of plain bread crumbs on mine the last 2-3 minutes of cooking time
2 points for 4 oz.

I served corn and french style green beans for my sides
Corn 2 points for 1/2 cup
Green beans 0 points for 1/2 cup

Now I have to admit I didn't make the lemon pie tonight cause I didn't have all the ingredients on hand but I promise you I will be making it this week!

1 1/2 cup skim milk (or 2% milk)
1/2 tub crystal light lemonade (not whole tub)
1 large box instant fat free sugar free vanilla pudding
8 oz. fat free Cool Whip
Reduced fat graham cracker crust
Mix lemonade and dry pudding together then add milk
Fold in Cool Whip & pour into pie crust
3 points per slice


I hope to be signed up with the linky widget by next week - then we can get this party started!

Tasty! The bread crumbs are a great idea to add a little crunch. That's one of my favorite fish (fishes?). They spell it Tilapia out here (CA) but I'm sure it tastes the same.

Yum! I will definitely have to try this one. We are just "learning" to cook fish, so this will be a good starter recipe!

I don't even think I would need a crust for that pie... the filling sounds divine!

Thank you SO much for voting for me and for commenting. I've joined your site too because we share a common goal--losing weight! I just met with a dietician on Monday to get my plan. I need encouragement...and recipes. Thanks, Julie
