My Better Then Fast Food Fish Sandwich

Norma DeRemer


I use to be one of those that thought that if I orderd a fish sandwich from any fast food place I'd save on calories until I came upon this reipe with only 8 grams of fat and 313 calories. Tried it, loved it. My husband and I love the flavor of this simple sandwich and would recommend it to anyone that want to cut down on calories and fat intake. Gave the recipe to my neighbor and her husband and her really liked it.
