Spicy Fish Sandwich & Jalapeño Cole Slaw
Don’t you just love easy meals? If you’ve been reading along with my little blog for any length of time, you know that we love our fish and seafood! Eric fishes a lot in the Spring and Fall, but in his old age, he has decided that he doesn’t like ice fishing as much as he once did! By the time January comes, we are pretty much out of fresh fish! Gorton’s Beer Battered Fillets to the rescue!
Now we can still incorporate fish in our diets, even in the middle of winter! And, honestly, it couldn’t be easier to incorporate fish into your diet with Gorton’s! And for all you Catholics out there, Lent is fast approaching!
The spicy aioli and spicy cole slaw are both made with my candied jalapeños! (If you haven’t noticed we are slightly obsessed with them of late!)
You can find these Gorton’s Beer Battered Fillets at Walmart! Conveniently located in the freezer aisle! This fish is 100% pollock fillets!
If you have mandolin to cut the cabbage, (or use precut from Walmart’s produce aisle) you can have this entire meal ready for the table in 25 minutes!
Did you know the American Heart Association recommends eating fish twice a week? Gorton’s Beer Battered Fish Fillets are 100% wild caught pollock! You can learn more on Gorton’s website, or their Facebook page

Spicy Fish Sandwich & Jalapeño Cole Slaw
- 8 Gorton's Beer Battered Fish Fillets 2 for each sandwich
- 1/2 small cabbage, finely shredded Or substitute bagged pre shredded, 5 1/2 cups
- 1/4 small red cabbage, finely shredded 1 cup
- 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
- 1 medium grated carrot
- 2 stlaks celery, finely diced
- 4 ciabatta rolls, or other crusty roll
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tbsp candied jalapeño brine
- 2 tsp finely minced candied jalapenos
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 tsp celery seed
- 2 tsp parsley
- Preheat oven and cook fish according to package directions.
- Cut up vegetables for coleslaw.
- Mix all aioli ingredients in a medium bowl.
- Add about 1/2 of the aioli to coleslaw, reserving some for topping the sandwich. Add as much as you need to make coleslaw as wet as you like it.
- When fish is almost done, toast rolls.
- To build sandwich, top each roll with 2 fish filets. Top filllets with about 1 tablespoon of reserved aioli. Top the aioli with however much coleslaw as you like. We used about 1/4 cup.
This recipe with added with a little Ranch dressing instead of a full cup of mayonnaise is FREAKIN Delicious.
That sounds like a good substitution. I’m glad you like the recipe Will!
Even if we do have fresh fish in the winter, sometimes is easier to buy ready one and beer batter sounds like a treat. I love your combination of aioli and candy jalapeno. I need to make it as well.
Thank you Laura! It is very handy to have ready to go products in the freezer for a quick and easy meal!!
I’d happily give this lush sandwich a 7* on the looks and deliciousness. Waw! Absolutely scrumptious. Thank you for sharing Binky????????
Thanks so much Ramona! I really appreciate that!
That slaw sounds spicy and really good. Mmmm, it’s lunch time and I would love to eat that sandwich.
This one is not too spicy, but can easily be made as spicy as you like! Thanks so much for your comment, Jere!
This sandwich looks truly amazing! Wishing it was my lunch. (Beautiful photos, too!)
Thanks so much, Valentina! I really appreciate that!
Jalapeno coleslaw sounds amazing. Especially on a fish sandwich! Will definitely be trying this recipe!
Thanks so much Jessica! I’m know you will love it!
Those beer battered fish fillet look delicious and they’re so handy for a quick meal, paired with your wonderful cole slaw, what a great fish burger, YUM!
Thanks so much, Patty! It’s nice to have an easy meal a few times a week when it gets busy! Isn’t it?
Oh my that is a towering sandwich, sounds lovely though and well worth getting messy over 😀 Ice fishing is typically very popular here but we are in the middle of the mildest winter we have seen in our 10 years here and no fear of any ice on our local lake 😮
That’s funny Brian! We’ve had the coldest winter we’ve had in 10 years! Thanks so much for your comment! Totally worth getting messy over!
I absolutely love how you took those fish filets to the next level!! That is a sandwich that I would gladly eat every Friday during Lent! I’m the oddball that always got the fish sandwich at MacDonalds instead of a hamburger!
Thanks so much for your kind words, Pam! i preferred the fish sandwich as well, even at McDonald’s!
Yum! I love fish sandwiches. But I doubly love SPICY fish sandwiches! I have got to try your recipe as it looks so delicious and right up my alley!
Thanks so much, Elaine! If you don’t add a lot of the jalapeno, it won’t be too spicy for C either. Eric likes it.
OK now I totally want this for breakfast right now. I love a good fish sandwich but I think you hooked me with the jalapeño coleslaw. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Haha! That would be a big breakfast, for sure! Thanks Traci!
You had me at jalapeño!
Thanks so much for your comment, Sandi! I really do appreciate it!
This looks like the perfect dinner for a really busy night!
I love easy dinners for crazy weeknights! Thanks, Sara!!
I want some of this deliciousness right now! It looks amazing!
Thank you, Natalia! Your comment is greatly appreciated!!
Oh wow this is exactly the kind of dinner I would love to eat just about every single day! I love fish sandwiches, and with the coleslaw it sounds and looks simply delicious!
Thanks so much, Natalie! It was super good! Of course I had to feed the monster double-decker to my 27 year old son! Too much for a normal human being!!
