I love grilled meats and fish and own a George Foreman grill, but I hate the clean-up involved after grilling or sauteing meats. While searching for something else, I came across the Rocket Grill. It is like a toaster, and you insert your fresh or frozen food into a parchment bag and put it into the slot.
After a couple of minutes, it is perfectly grilled, even without a marinade, has nice grill marks, and the best thing is that you toss out the parchment bag with the fat that has collected in the bottom, and there is NO CLEAN UP AT ALL!
Fish offers an excellent source of protein that, on average, is lower in calories than the same size serving of meat. 90 g / 3 oz of flounder = 80 calories, with 1 g fat; the same amount of lean grilled hamburger meat yields 230 calories with 16 g of fat. 492
Even oily fish like salmon contains only 140 calories and 5 g fat for a 90 g / 3 oz portion.
