Cape Cod Sliders with Healthy Solutions Herb Crusted Tilapia Seasoning


I came in third in a three way tie, the other two were the Cheesy Mac Attack and Miss Jess' Southern Fried Steak Salad.   
I think I'm in great company there. 

I did it again, entered another contest.

Healthy Solutions along with Red Arrow Diner are co-sponsoring this contest.
EDITED TO ADD:  I'm one of 5 finalists.

I love the seasonings from Healthy Solutions anyway.  They have a lot of great combinations, and they're all salt free.  So if you're watching your salt intake or, are like me, who cooks with very little salt, these are perfect for you.  I've used several of their seasoning mixes in various recipes over the years.
I've also experimented with them.  A lot.

When I saw that they were having another recipe challenge, or contest,  I jumped on the bandwagon and started trying to come up with a great new recipe.

A few years back I placed third in their contest, and was not just pleasantly shocked but I loved the recipe I came up with.  And I've made the Potstickers several times since. 

However, this year the contest asked for recipes that could be served in a Diner. 

I got my thinking cap on, then turned it around a few times, tried a few recipes out, didn't really care for some of them, and in fact one became an instant offering to the Kitchen Goddess.

Luckily she didn't throw it back.

So I started thinking about typical Diner fare.  You have your burgers, your open faced Sandwiches, cold sandwiches, hot sandwiches and if you're lucky, fish and chips.

One item I've been seeing lately on diner menus are sliders, all kinds of sliders.   And that's when the 'I GOT IT' moment hit.

How about some Cod Cake Sliders?

I made some rolls so I could really taste them.  You don't have to make your own, just go ahead and buy some. I was too lazy to drive to the store to buy some. 
And the assembly...  A little lettuce on top of the remoulade smeared roll

And the crowning glory of a perfectly browned Cod Cake.  You can even see a little sizzle going on there.

Look at that that beauty, just waiting...
 I had to taste it, and it was wonderful.  Rich, flavorful, and perfection in my mouth.
   I also made the Remoulade sauce to top these beauties.  I really don't like the taste of commercial tartar sauce, but you're welcome to use your own.  

I could totally see these on a diner menu or on my table again, and again and again.

How to cook Cod Cake Sliders made with Healthy Solutions Herb Crusted Tilapia Seasoning

Cod Cakes
  1. Remove any and all bones.  Chop or mince the cod into small pieces, using either a sharp knife or a food processor, making sure not to chop the fish too small, leaving some small chunks.  This adds a nice note to the fish cakes.
  2. Mix together the chopped fish, seasonings, egg and flour. Place in fridge to set up for at least an hour. 
  3. Heat the ghee and olive oil together and make small cakes of the fish mixture, and fry until golden on each side.
  4. NOTE: Use only 1/4 cup flour if using fresh fish, but you can increase the flour to 1/2 cup if using frozen fish.
  1. Mix the Remoulade ingredients together and place in fridge to allow the ingredients to mellow out and get acquainted.
Assemble the Sliders
  1. Butter the slider rolls, and brown them in a hot pan.  Place a spoonful of Remoulade on each browned and buttered side of the roll.  Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom and then put the hot cod cake on top of the lettuce.  Place the other half of the buttered and browned roll on top and serve.

  1. This sounds like a winner to me! Recently my husband learned that it is crucial to his health to manage his salt intake. I am delighted to find out about Healthy Solutions and will definitely be trying it. I am also anxious to try this recipe. Thanks!

    1. I'm a major fan of the seasonings that Healthy Solutions puts out. I cook with little to no salt most of the time. Please try this recipe and let me know what you think.
