  • 350 grams per serving and only 275 calories, it’s a great evening meal for a low calorie day. There is no secret here, Bok Choy is around 13 calories per 100 grams, and Monk fish is around 96 calories per 100 grams, so we can afford to be generous with the portions. In fairness, I don’t actually know how many calories are in 100 grams of Stargazer Fish, I’m going to assume it’s the same as 100 grams of Angler-fish.
