Since I’ve been very conscious about counting my calorie intake lately, I like to do the same when I’m dining out. I love any place that’s very transparent about what they serve, and Houlihan’s is one of those places. Usually healthy is associated with bland but Houlihan’s Lighter Fare Menu proves that eating well can still be packed with flavor. Here are some of my favorite items on their menu that are all under 590 calories:
MISO GRILLED SALMON (CAL 540) miso-marinated atlantic salmon over stir-fried quinoa with steamed edamame, house-pickled cucumber, and shaoxing sauce.
KEY LIME MOUSSE (CAL 420) layered with crystallized graham cracker crust, and whipped cream.
My absolute favorite is the Miso Grilled Salmon because the Asian flavors are perfectly balanced in one plate and the salmon is grilled to perfection. And seriously, who doesn’t love edamame?
For all of my calorie-counting friends, here’s your chance to be able to try Houlihan’s Lighter Fare Menu! I’m giving away a $50 GIFT CARD TO HOULIHAN’S. Here’s how to enter:
