Fish ‘N’ Chips
(low fat & low calorie recipe)
Tartar Sauce (see recipe below)
1 pound (3 medium) russet potatoes, unpeeled
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
6 tablespoons whole-wheat bread crumbs
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 egg white

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with with non-stick cooking spray. Prepare Tartar Sauce.
Scrub potatoes and slice potatoes lengthwise into wedges. Arrange the potato wedges on one side, leaving enough room for the fish fillets, and spray them with cooking spray. Bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
While potatoes are baking, combine flour, bread crumbs and pepper in a shallow bowl.
In another shallow bowl, lightly beat the egg white. Dip the fish fillets in the egg white, then coat both sides with the flour mixture. Transfer the prepared fish fillets to the baking sheet, alongside the potatoes; continue to cook for approximately 10 minutes more or until a meat thermometer inserted in the fish fillets registers an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Remove from oven and serve.
