Fish and Chips
I have been craving fish and chips for a while and I didn't want to have lots of batter and grease. We have mainly been eating sweet potato chips baked in the oven, but I felt like good old potato chips. I don't usually like frozen chips, but yesterday I found these "Light Supreme Crunch Chips" from Woolworths and decided to give them a try. I oven baked them as per instructions on the packet and they were delicious! Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle and only 0.4g of saturated fat per 125g. (583kj, 0.4g sat fat, 3.3g total fat per 125g) I didn't measure the portions but just checked this morning for interest and DH and I ate 300g. He had a larger portion than me, so I guess I had about 125g. I rolled some flathead fillets in a small amount of flour, sprinkled on salt and pepper and shallow fried the fish in a tablespoon of olive oil. It was delicious. We had a leafy salad with it and I was really pleased with our meal of reasonably guilt-free fish and chips.
Hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day with the love of your life.
