Ultimate Fish Sandwich, Long John Silverâs
Ahoy mateysâŠ are yer ready to walk the chicken plank with Mr. Bad Food and dive into a fish sandwich at Long John Silverâs?
If so, yer ready to sink your diet with as many calories and fat as NINE deep-fried hushpuppies!
While fishing around the âNet for bad foods to review, I put down anchor at the Long John Silverâs Web site,
www.ljsilvers.com, and reeled in these nutrition facts for The Ultimate Fish Sandwich: 530 calories and 28 grams of fat.
After further review, I discovered that one deep-fried corn meal and flour ball lovingly called a hushpuppy has 60 calories and 2.5 grams of fat. Do the math first mate. Nine of these tasty morsels will net you 540 calories and 22.5 total grams of fat.
You can hook the complete numbers at the Web site. But Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrr you also wondering why itâs so tough to plunder healthy seafood sandwich at a seafood joint?
Do you think it could possibly have something to do with the fact that most of the booty from the sea at a Long John Silverâs eatery comes breaded and fried? The mayo-heavy tartar sauce doesnât help.
Your pirate pal is not trying to scare you off seafood. Fish can be good for you. Just make sure you order yours baked, broiled or blackenedâŠ and maybe served on a whole-grain roll if the urge for a fish sandwich lures you in.
Chew on This: Be sure to steer clear of menu terms like âcrunchyâ or âgoldenâ. These terms most always mean FRIED in oil!
