Today’s Menu: Red Snapper Fish Sandwich w/ Tofu Mac & Cheese

 
A comfort food classic, with a bit of a spin, for dinner tonight. It’s a Fish sandwich with Mac and Cheese! I love Mac & Cheese but I don’t like the calories and carbs that usually come with it. So to cut back on the calories and carbs I replaced the Pasta Macaroni with Tofu Shiratki (Yam Noodle with Tofu) Macaroni Shape Noodles.

 

I used a Red Snapper Fillet for my Fish. After rinsing the fillet off with water I patted the fillet dry with a paper towel. I then seasoned it with Sea Salt, Black Pepper, and Garlic Salt. Then rolled it in Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 minutes per side. Came out with a beautiful golden brown crust and moist and delicious! Served it on an Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Wheat Mini Sub Bun and topped with a slice of Borden Smoked Cheddar.

 

Now for the Mac & Cheese, this is where it gets good! I used TOFU SHIRATAKI (Yam Noodle with Tofu) MACARONI SHAPE which is only 20 calories and 3 carbs! I added a half a serving of Velveeta 2% Cheese, and a Tablespoon Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Seasoned with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. Mix it all together and microwave on high for 1 minute and 40 seconds. After the first minute stop it to stir and continue with 40 seconds, the time can vary according to your microwave. I’m starting to use Tofu more and more as a noodle substitute. Huge difference in calories and carbs between the two. A thank you to Hungry Girl for the idea. I left the recipe and the link to the Housefoods Tofu at the end of the post. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Bob Evan’s Glazed Apples.
