Now that Lent is in full swing, you may be wondering what the best place is to get a healthy fish meal on the go, right? Well, we recently scoured the seafood chain Long John Silver’s menu for the healthiest options. Based on recommendations from our registered dietitian Rebecca Scritchfield and the new daily sodium recommendations, the following four items, when paired with a Corn Cobbette without Butter Oil, have less than 500 calories and less than 500 milligrams of sodium per meal. So go get your fish on!
Healthiest Meals at Long John Silver’s
1. Three Battered Shrimp. If you’re really craving fried food, indulge smartly with this small portion that comes in with a Corn Cobbette at just 225 calories and 480 milligrams of sodium.
2. Two Grilled Pacific Salmon fillets. For just 300 calories and 440 milligrams of sodium you can have heart-healthy and filling salmon and a Corn Cobbette!
3. Two Grilled Tilapia fillets. Enjoy two fillets of this mild and low-fat fish along with a Corn Cobbette for 310 calories and 500 milligrams of sodium. Yum!
4. Langostino Lobster Stuffed Crab Cake. Love lobster? You can have one! This lobster and crab cake paired with a Corn Cobbette will just cost you 260 calories and 390 milligrams of sodium.
It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten at a Long John Silver’s, and I have to say that the chain has definitely come a long way from only offering the crispy and fried fish and hush-puppies I remember!
