I assembled my ingredients... and psyched myself up... but when it came to the moment, I couldn't do it! I just couldn't take our healthy food and throw it into all that FAT!
(~gasp~ Am I finally learning to respect my body?)
So there I was at dinner-preparation time standing in my kitchen, staring at this nice big pile of cleaned sole and it hit me (duh!) that I should oven-bake my fish sticks!

When you look at the difference in nutrition, the choice is clear:
Fried Sticks: 1 Serving = Calories 552, Fat 27g, Sat Fat 6g, Cholesterol 193mg, Sodium 1,142mg
Baked Sticks: 1 serving = 278 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 129 mg cholesterol, 718 mg sodium
The Husband's review: He liked them a lot, especially that they tasted "light and fresh" as opposed to frozen fish sticks. He said he'd eat them often, too, but to his credit, he gladly eats anything I cook and doesn't care HOW often it's served! :)
Note: I usually prepare my coleslaw with mayo, a little white sugar and a splash of white or apple cider vinegar, but this time I tried the recipe included with the fried fish, and it turned out quite nice. The mister wished for more salt on his, but overall it was liked.
