Default fish sticks?

If you get a headache about 6 hours after eating them, it is
because Trader Joe's fish stick are coated with Liar's MSG
(Torula yeast, yeast extract, etc.).

I do love Trader Joe's, but I am permanently ****ed at them
for stating they don't use MSG, then they use every and
any form of Liar's MSG they can find. This practice
is unethical to say the least.

I haven't read the whole thread, but I'd cut the fish when it was
frozen, then bread it and fry it. Many fish/meats cut much better when
fully or partially frozen.

Great tip. Cod is especially fragile.

I don't know why you're so fond of the word "Liar's". In and of itself, it
can be naturally occurring in foods and it's not one of the top 8 allergens
so they don't have to declare it. I don't know if you asked Trader Joe's
about the MSG or what...or what their response to it was but... I would
imagine that if asked they would say that they do not add MSG, meaning the
seasoning labeled as MSG.

If you have an allergy or other issue with a certain food then you need to
read each and every label. Lots of things may state that they are gluten
free but they may not be. For instance, Rice Dream products. They use
barley to process the rice and barely contains gluten. Their products have
sickened many a person who must avoid gluten. I haven't bought this product
for years but it used to state that it was tested and found to have less
than some stated tiny amount...can't remember what...of gluten. I don't
think (but I could be wrong) that in this country there is a law on that but
in some others such as Australia, they do have those laws.

Another thing that Trader Joes does a lot of is to produce products on
shared lines. So there is very little I will buy there now because it is
not safe for me due to that reason. Walmart does the same.

Hi All,

The love of my life eats the same stuff I do to make
sure there is no temptation for me to cheat. (I had
the good sense to make my trophy wife my first wife.)

The *ONLY* fish she would eat before my induction into
the pin cushion club was "fish sticks" (battered cod).
She really hates fish too.

I can get natural flash frozen cod from my local Raley's.
How do I make something that tastes similar to Fish Sticks
and stay with my/our 15 carb per meal limit?

Many thanks,

Fish sticks? That is enough to drive rational folks off the deep end.
Yes I'm real mad. Sorry.-

Hi Bigwheel,


Since I am having trouble cutting Cod into sticks (it just
mashes), my next attempt will be to leave the fillets alone
and just use the pecan breading and seasoning I can up with.

Oh, and no hot sauce.


Ahh ok gotcha. Seems like I was forced to eat fish sticks back in the
good old days. If they nice and crunchy I can gag them down
occasionally...lol. Have you tried sticking Mr. Fish in the freezer for
a while before starting the dissection procedure? That should hold it
intact long off to cut off a chunk or two. Also..back on the original
Atkins book they had recipes for breading fish filets with ground up
Parmesium cheese. Sure was tasty. Have you tried that? Get some spicy
seafood sauce for dipping. All Trophy Bride's seem to demand red sauce
or at least ketchup on their fish sticks. Kindly keep us updated about
that. Thanks.

Hi Bigwheel,

"Parmesan cheese"! I had not thought of that. Next go around.
I will keep you updated for sure.

Thank you!

You said you were avoiding MSG? It's in there. Also in tomatoes and a
bunch of other foods where it naturally occurs.
