Cod Sammie With Apple Slaw

I have been sharing quick and easy meal ideas…I know many of you guys are busy moms like me. Please tell me that I am not the only one having a hard time getting into a good routine now that school has started back.

It just seems like time flies once the boys get home from school. I am on a mission to find easy and delicious recipes that allow us to still fit in all the things have to accomplish before bedtime! This Crispy Cod Sandwich with Tangy Apple Slaw was a huge hit with my guys and came together with almost no effort. I thought I’d share it in case you needed a busy weeknight option.

I made the slaw before the boys got home from school. It takes maybe 10 minutes to prep. You could cut down on that time if you went with a bagged slaw mix. You’ll want to give it time to sit in the fridge…you could even do it the night before if you wanted. Once the boys were home, I preheated the oven and cooked the Mrs. Paul’s Garlic Herb Cod. The fish takes about 30 minutes to cook so we were able to knock out some homework while dinner was in the oven…you know I am all about multi-tasking!

Once the timer went off, all I had to do was assemble the sandwich.

This one is great because all the work is really done for you! Mrs. Paul’s Flavor Crusted Fillets are made from 100% Real Fish Fillets that are lightly coated with a flavorful combination of panko crust & blend of flavorful seasonings. You don’t have to fuss over a bunch of ingredients to create a delicious meal…simply pop them in your oven and let them bake. Paired with the tangy slaw, it’s really a great combo! Just serve with some fruit and you have a big hearty meal that the whole family will love!

You’ll notice the hardest part was just whipping up that slaw – which will only take about 10 minutes of your time. No need to call for take-out or run by the drive thru…you can put a good meal on the table and still have time to get all those to-do’s done! Try this recipe and let me know what you think!
