1 lb skinless white fish fillets
¼ cup freshly grated
   (cod, halibut or sole)
   Parmesan cheese
2 egg whites
6 crusty whole wheat buns  
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
   (each 1½ oz) or pitas
½ cup corn flakes cereal crumbs      
 6 tablespoons light tartar Sauce 
                                                          (see below)

1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Cut fish fillets into 6 equal pieces.

2. In a shallow dish, using a fork, beat egg whites and oil.

3. In a separate shallow dish, combine corn flakes crumbs and Parmesan cheese.

4. Dip fish pieces first into egg mixture, then into crumbs. Press crumbs on to make sure they stick. Discard any excess egg and crumb mixtures.

5. Place fish on baking sheet, sprayed with vegetable spray and bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until coating is golden brown and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Don't overcook.

6. Serve on whole wheat buns, topped with 1 tablespoon light tartar Sauce and your choice of toppings.
Great toppings that don't add a lot of carbohydrates or calories are: lettuce or spinach leaves, tomato slices, thinly sliced onions (grilled, sautéed or raw), dill pickle slices.
