What's Cooking: Lady's Choice Fish Fillet and Apple Sandwich
It's baon season once again and it's very easy to experience lunch box fatigue from eating and preparing the same school snack everyday. As much as possible, we stay away from unhealthy snacks and my kid often brings choco-milk or a yogurt drink, a peanut butter sandwich and a banana. Although she enjoys her food, we also like to jazz it up from time to time. Good thing we have different viands of Lady's Choice Sandwich Spreads, for this recipe we used Lady's Choice Tuna Spread.
Here's an idea we taste-tested a couple of days ago. Since we are trying to cure her of her frozen chicken-nuggets addiction, I used cream dory fish fillet for the sandwich. What I like about cream dory is the mild taste and when breaded and battered, she can't tell the difference between that and chicken nuggets, haha;-)
1 small apple, julienne
2 tbsp raisins
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 Cream Dory
1 tbsp corn starch
1 pinch baking soda
1 tsp vinegar
4 tbsp flour
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper
oil for frying
2 Slices of bread
Lady's Choice Tuna Spread
1. Prepare the apple slaw, start by julienning the apple. I just love saying julienne, it's a fancy shmancy term for slicing the apples into thin strips. In a small bowl, mix the apples, raisins, lemon juice and sugar. Set aside.
2. Prepare the fish batter. In a non-reactive bowl mix the vinegar and baking soda, don't be surprised when it sizzles, mix the flour, water, salt and pepper. Adjust to taste. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the cream dory fillet then dredge it n cornstarch before dipping it into the batter and deep frying in hot oil for about 5-6 minutes until golden brown. You can also pan fry at 3-4 minutes on each side.
3. It's time to assemble your Lady's Choice Fish Fillet and Apple Sandwich. Put some Lady's Choice Tuna spread on to 2 pieces of bread. Put about 2 tablespoons of apple slaw, without the juice, and top it with the cream dory fillet. Enjoy!
The sweetness of the apple-raisin slaw combined with the fish and the balanced taste of the Lady's Choice Tuna spread makes this a perfect snack;-)
