Battered fish is the type of dish where the fish being cooked is coated in a batter before it is fried/ deep fried. The batter and the fish both vary depending upon the recipe and the preferences of the cook. Depending upon the fish, the batter and the mode of frying the calories contained and the nutritional value both differ.
The battered fish prepared by the Long John Silvers’ has a total of only 260 calories but it is graded an F on the nutritional scale. Of the 260 calories, 144 come from the 16.0 g fat content (4.0g of it being saturated fat). The cholesterol level, the sodium and the protein levels in one serving (i.e. 92 g) of the fish are 35mg, 790mg and 12.0 g respectively. The carbohydrates content of 17.0 g in the serving has only 0.9g of dietary fibers in it. The dish also does not contain either of vitamins A or C and iron or calcium. Also the high sodium content is a negative in terms of nutrition.
