Today was a long, long day. I need more hours today, I am sure you have all been there. Because I was so pressed for time, I needed to make lunch that was quick, simple, and full of flavor.
I am never to busy for flavor!
I rinsed my fish, patted it dry, placed it in a bowl and topped it with creole seasonings, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and a little smoked paprika.
Add two beaten eggs, some hot sauce and the zest and juice of a lemon. Oh, don’t forget about little yellow mustard. Mix and that’s it!
While the fish is relaxing and the grease is heating up, I made some quick slaw with this beautiful purple cabbage. Just beautiful, look at it, I love pretty vegetables.
When the grease is ready, fry the fish until golden brown, about 8 minutes.
Beautiful, huh? Yep, perfectly golden brown, not greasy, and seasoned to perfection. Drain on paper towels while you lightly toast your bun.
Place slaw on bottom bun, I added some leftover veggies because I wanted extra crunch.
Top with two pieces of fish per person, or more if you dare! Let’s Eat.
