Shrimp And Fish Sliders #FISHFRIDAYFOODIE


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.  

Ingredients 
For the Cutlets
200 Gram Cleaned and Deveined  Shrimps / Prawns 
200 Grams White Fish Fillets - cut in pieces
2 Green Chilllies - chopped
8 Peppercorns- coarsely powdered
5 Cloves Garlic - chopped
1 Inch Piece Ginger - chopped
1 Scallion / Spring Onion - chopped
1 Egg - beaten
2 Slices bread - cut into small pieces
A Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
A Tablespoon Freshly Chopped Coriander
Salt to taste
Bread crumbs for coating



Slider Buns made as per this recipe, used the same method and dough ingredients for it.



Low Cal  Yogurt and Cream Cheese Dip

To make the cutlets

After an hour divde  the mixture into even size cutlets.  Dip it in the remaining egg, roll in bread crumbs and keep aside.



Heat oil in a  frying pan and shallow fry them till golden on both sides for 5 minutes on each side on medium flame.  Remove them on to  paper towel to drain off the excess oil.

  1. I love the ingredients you flavored your sliders with, and that you used both fish and shrimp. They sound fantastic! And holy cow, what a brilliant idea to use a muffin tin to make your slider buns...I must try that!

  2. So glad you noticed that the oven turned off, Sneha! I hate when those things happen. I am embarrassed to admit that my microwave supposedly does the convection thing as well but I have no idea how to use it!
