Dinner: BJ`s Creole Tilapia

4 years ago

my sister and i went to BJ`s restaurant & brewery tonight for dinner. i used to always order the grilled chicken pasta there but at 1700 calories for that one dish, i realized i can`t get it anymore. and it`s so scary looking at their menu! everything has so many calories :(

they do have an "enlightened entrees" menu with choices all under 575 calories. last time, i tried the maui glazed pork chop. i decided to try something new today and get the creole tilapia. it`s served with a rice pilaf and arugula salad.

the fish was quite good. it didn`t have that fishy taste at all. when my parents make fish at home, it always still has the fishy taste :P it was topped with a sauce made with tomatoes and olives. i thought this was a really neat combination of flavors for a sauce. it was a little overwhelmingly tomato-y but nothing i couldn`t handle.

the rice pilaf was SO GOOD. it`s the best i`ve ever eaten! it was moist and flavorful, whereas the ones i`ve had in the past were always dry and bland.

the only part i didn`t enjoy was the salad. i think it even says on the menu that the salad was an arugula salad. the problem is i hate arugula! haha i probably should`ve read the menu more carefully and asked for a normal salad and i`ll remember to do that next time.

i might get this again next time or i might try the balsamic chicken breast. that one has more calories but it`s still one of the healthier choices on the menu. i would say that i really enjoyed my selection :)

and of course, my sister and i ended our meal with a pizookie. we almost ALWAYS get the regular sized one and we order half oreo half chocolate chunk. i didn`t get a picture of this since we dug right in when it arrived at our table LOL

what`s your favorite kind of fish to eat?
