Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 med head broccoli cut into florets

3 jalapeno seeded and chopped

1/4 teaspoon sea salt divided

1 12 oz tilapia or cat fish fillet cut into thirds

1/2 cup ww flour

1 oz part-skim mozzarella cheese grated

6 egg whites

2 tablespoons evoo divided


Dipping sauce:

1/2 cup sliced roasted red peppers

1/4 cup malt vinegar

1 tablespoon nonfat Greek yogurt

Preparation

  • Prepare dipping sauce-Place all ingredients into a mini chopper and blend until smooth. Set aside until ready.
  • Prepare fritters-Place broccoli, jalapeno, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor, process until chunky.
  • Add fish, flour and cheese and pulse 2 or 3 more times, until fish is broken up. In a large bowl, add egg whites and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.
  • Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until they triple in volume and cling to the inside of the bowl when tilted.
  • Add 1/4 cup fish mixture to egg whites and gently fold them in once or twice with a rubber spatula.
  • Add remaining fish mixture, folding gently for 5 or 6 turns as to not deflate egg whites.
  • Heat 2 large skillets over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to each skillet and reduce heat to medium.
  • Drop fish mixture into skillets in scant 1/4 cup increments, spacing fritters 1 inch apart and cooking in batches, if necessary.
  • Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning once, until both sides are crisp and brown.
  • Transfer cooked fritters to a plate and cover with a paper towel.
  • Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
