Buying Fish sticks or Fish Fillets Frequently For Your Kids Or Family?
January 31st 2008
Do you find yourself buying fish sticks or fish fillets frequently for your kids or family? You think your doing good by offering them fish which is protein as oppose to what they could be eating, right? WRONG! Most fish sticks serving size is like 4 sticks or something unreasonable and not nearly enough to fill you up and same goes for fish fillets, their serving size is 1 fillet, and then the fat and calorie content is based on that!
I was notorious for buying fish sticks or fillets for that reason, but realized that the fat content was just too much to be having on a regular basis so I found a great tasting alternative! Most fish fillets or fish sticks are cod, which is kind of a fatty fish, I have found at Target that they have battered Mahi Mahi fillets with only 110 calories and 4.5 grams of fat per serving! That is SO much better than the other 10-14 grams of fat per serving that the other fishes and brands offer! I actually just ate them and you CAN NOT tell the difference except for the fact that they are much thicker and filling than the other fillets. The do however retail for about $8.00 a bag containing 12 fillets, where you can get 8-10 of the fattier fillets for about $5.00 or there abouts.
If you or your family are regular frozen fish eaters, then I would defiantly switch to these fillets. In addition to the low fat and great tasting qualities, Mahi Mahi is in the group of fish with the lowest mercury content. The only thing you will notice between the fattier fishes and the Mahi Mahi fillets is that you are eating less and your cloths seem to be a bit looser They are truly Delicious! Thank You Target!!!
