Ingredients In Baked Cod Fish Sliders
How to Make Fish Sliders
PRO TIP: To remove the sharp overwhelming bite from your onions, soak them! Just slice or dice the onions, soak them in cold water for 30 minutes, remove from the cold water, and pat dry.
These fish sliders are best stored in the refrigerator, and covered in an airtight container, for up to three days. To reheat them just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds or until warmed.
What To Serve With Baked Cod Fish Sliders
- Lemon Orzo Salad
- Smashed Fingerling Potatoes
- Fries, tater tots, or try my Lemon Feta Waffle Fries
- Potato Chips: salt and vinegar, dill pickle, wavy, etc.
- English Pea Salad
- Pasta salads like this Spicy Macaroni Salad
- A garden salad
ADD CHEESE- Some people love cheese on their fish sandwiches (I confess I am not one of those people). Sliced American cheese is a classic but you could put whatever you like on them.
TOP WITH COLESLAW- For something even more unique, try adding a fresh coleslaw in place of the lettuce and red onion.
USE OTHER SEASONING BLENDS- Old Bay, Cajun seasoning, lemon pepper, or cumin. Just make sure the seasoning is not too overwhelming, you still want to taste the fish.
