Easy Healthy Recipe Wednesday: Fish On A Bun (1 Serving)

I am going to be making more burgers and hot dogs because they are perfect for the summer time.

Today I will be making a healthier version of Filet-O-Fish. I also made the tartar sauce myself.

This dish is perfect for lunch.

Remember, for every lunch dish that are introduced in “Easy Healthy Recipe Wednesday and Thursday”, we aim for $3 CAN per serving maximum. Here is the recipe and cost of ingredients:

1 frozen haddock fillet, defrosted ($1.67 CAN)

1/8 red cabbage, shredded ($0.19 CAN)

1 hot dog bun ($0.28 CAN)

1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise ($0.30CAN)

1/2 tablespoon capers, minced ($0.3 CAN)

1/2 tablespoons lemon juice ($0.13 CAN)

1 drop red wine vinegar ($0.01 CAN)

1 tablespoon vegetable oil ($0.01 CAN)

salt and pepper to taste ($0.05 CAN)



1) Mix capers, lemon juice, mayo, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper together. Set aside.


2) Heat up pan over medium heat.  Put salt and pepper onto fillet.  When pan is hot, put oil on pan and cook fillet about 4 minutes each side.  Set aside when fish is cooked.



3) Toast hot dog bun on a pan until slightly toasted.


4) Mix almost half of prepared tartar sauce and the red cabbage together. Set aside.



5) Spread the hot and bottom hot dog buns with the tartar sauce.  Place fillet onto the bottom bun. Place red cabbage on top of fillet.  Place top bun onto the cabbage.  Serve when ready.


This Fish On A Bun was delicious. I could taste the oily flavour from the fillet and the crunch from the red cabbage.

However, I think I should shred my red cabbage finer next time.  I should also spread a bit more tartar sauce onto the buns.

Ultimately, this dish costs $2.94 CAN in total.  WHAT A GREAT THING TO DO WITH FROZEN FISH RIGHT?
