"From Eating Well magazine. Crispy fish doesn't have to be deep-fried to be tasty. This is a healthier version with a yummy pineapple slaw. Note: don't used crushed pineapple, it is too small for the slaw. Also, take some help from the grocery store and buy a carrot and cabbage slaw mix. Easy peasy! Our family loved this and will be making it often."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar and crushed red pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Add pineapple and coleslaw mix and stir to combine.

Step 2

Place cornmeal in a shallow dish. Sprinkle both sides of fish with Cajun seasoning and salt. Dredge the fish in the cornmeal.

Step 3

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the fish and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and fish, adjusting heat as needed to prevent burning.

Step 4

Top toasted bread with the fish and pineapple slaw to make sandwiches. Serve immediately.

We really enjoyed the fish and the slaw! I used creole seasoning instead of the cajun seasoning but I think they are basically the same thing and otherwise made as directed using cod and hamburger buns. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!

The biggest surprise for me was how much my son liked this recipe! He normally only likes fish when it is battered and fried. But he devoured this. The pineapple slaw was awesome. Loved it. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.
