Spicy Cod Cakes with Chipotle Sauce for 7 Weight Watchers Points

I am not really a Fish Fan, but I love these spicy cod cakes.  The recipe, as I wrote it, called for regular, Full-Fat ingredients, but I lightened it up just a tad. Each patty is actually quite large.  That is one corner of a serving platter shown in the image above, as I included a couple of other Fish options for the rest of the Family to try. 

Cod Cake Ingredients:

12 oz. cod fillet (8 points)
1 egg (2 points)
2 Tablespoons Hellman's Light Mayo (0 points)
1/2 c. Panko breadcrumbs (2 points)
3 green onion (I use more) (0 points)
3 Tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil (12 points)

24 Recipe Total points for cakes divided by 4 patties comes out to 6 points per cod cake. 

Cod Cake Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Lightly coat a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Season Fillets with salt and pepper to taste and place in pan.  Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until Fish Flakes easily with a Fork.  REmove from oven and let cool completely.

Break Fillet(s) into small Flakes and place in a large bowl.  Add the egg, 2 tablespoons of the mayo, the panko and green onions.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and gently mix to combine.  Form into 4 large patties.

In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add patties and cook 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through (145 degrees F).

Chipotle Sauce Ingredients: 

1/2 c. light sour cream (4 points)
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (0 points)
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped wearing a glove (0 points)
2 Tablespoons of Hellman's Light Mayo (0 points)

4 points total sauce recipe points divided into four equal servings comes out to 1 point per serving. 

Chipotle Sauce Directions: 

In a small bowl, combine sour cream, cilantro, chipotle pepper, and 2 tablespoons of light mayo.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Divide evenly and top each of the 4 cod cakes with a dollop.

Serves: 4
Points: 7 Points per Serving
