I often make prawn cutlets and always wanted to try a combo of fish and prawns. But, was apprehensive how they would taste, to our surprise these turned out delicious and succulent. We loved having these sliders.
Made the slider buns too at home. While the slider buns were half way through the baking, the oven stop working, thank God, had the presence of mind to immediately start preheating the microwave convection oven, baked the last 10 to 15 minutes in it. The bread baked well but was a little dry. Anyways we still enjoyed it since I, made a Low Cal Yogurt & Cream Cheese Sauce for the sliders, so that kept the sliders moist. To get them small and even in size made in katoris, see pics below.
