Weight Watchers Fish and Chips Recipe
Weight Watchers Fish and Chips Recipe. Do you love fish and chips? Well, I do too! That’s why I’m so excited to share this recipe.
It’s perfect for the whole family, even if they’re not on Weight Watchers like me. This recipe is one of my favorite dishes I’ve ever made because it tastes just like the real thing but without all the fat and calories that come with a typical order at a restaurant.
Fish and Chips are a quintessential British dish. The origin of this dish is not entirely known, but many believe it was first made in Great Britain during the 19th century. Unfortunately, this dish can quickly add on pounds with all that oil used in it’s cooking process. Luckily, we have a healthier alternative for those who still want to enjoy their favorite meal without feeling guilty afterwards!
How is this version healthier? It’s baked, not fried! Made with made with fat-free buttermilk, fish fillets, potatoes, paprika, salt, black pepper, Pam cooking spray, cornmeal, old bay seasoning, and egg whites.
This recipe also includes homemade tarter sauce made of fat-free mayonnaise, scallions, unsweetened pickles, and lemon juice.
The whole family will love this meal so you don’t have to make separate meals. It is definitely kid friendly. Great for lunch or dinner.
I hope you enjoy our healthier version of Fish and Chips!
