With roasted vegetables on the side, the dish contains just 490 calories (only 300 calories when prepared with shrimp instead). I was pleased with the dish. A good deal for$10.
There’s lots more information about healthy options at the Macaroni Grill in my book, Eat Out Healthy.
Frankly, all I saw was two good size pieces of overcooked fish with a bed of heavily saturated arugula in between. Granted, the plate was nicely decorated with dollops of both sweet and spicy sauces. But, John and I counted 3 single beans and I didn’t seeany tomatoes. To be fair, the manager didn’t charge us for this dish and said that we should have gotten more beans and the fish appeared dry.
Have any of you had any better luck with this $19 dish?Oh, and when eating out at Romano’s Macaroni Grill, be sure to factor in that 480 calorie Peasant bread (and that 120 calories/tablespoon olive oil) that’s served before the meal arrives.
