  • 1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Sweet Red Peppers

  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 28 oz Snapper (Fish) (Mixed Species)

  4. Meanwhile, process 4 tbsp olive oil, cilantro, chopped ginger, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and zest from the lime in a food processor or blender to a chunky puree.
  5. Transfer fish with vegetables to plates, top with sauce, and serve each fillet with a lime wedge.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
