SANDRA'S SUPERB FRESH HALIBUT PO’ BOYS
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1-3/4 cups shredded green cabbage
1/4 cup shredded carrots
***Prepare Halibut Strips
1 lb. fresh halibut fillets, cut into 2-1/2” strips (finger-size)
2 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornmeal
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning (or creole seasoning)
½ teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 potato sandwich rolls split lengthwise, and lightly toasted
--(I do so in the toaster, although 5 to 7 mins. in
a 350-degree oven works as well)
In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and sugar until smooth. Add coleslaw mix; toss, and set aside.
In a shallow dish, coat the halibut with milk. In a large ziploc bag, combine flour, cornmeal, cajun seasoning, salt, and cayenne and mix thoroughly, and then add the halibut strips a few pieces at a time; zip bag closed and shake to coat.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat, and cook halibut for 3 to 4 minutes per side, just until fish flakes easily with a fork and coating is golden brown (do not overcook).
Spoon coleslaw onto bottom half of lightly toasted sandwich rolls, and top with halibut strips, and then add a bit more coleslaw mixture on top, topping with other half of roll.~ Enjoy!
