We loved these fish sandwiches served with Onion and Orange Salad with sugar-free jello w/fruit for dessert -- it's probably a 10/11 pt supper but felt like we were eating a great weeknight supper -- without DIET written all over it! The original recipe (from WW.com) suggests flounder for the fish - I used Tilapia with excellent results on whole wheat hamburger buns. The original recipe also adds 1 tsp thyme to the cornmeal mix - I didn't use any - but it may be better with the added thyme.

These were awesome! Just the right balance of everything and great cooking technique. I used cod and it was perfect. I did add a piece of cheese, we love our cheese, but I bet it would have been great without. DH said he would eat it again today. Thanks for the great keeper.
