Mouthwatering Fish & Chips Salad with Potato Croutons
We are Gorton’s Seafood Ambassadors. All tasty views expressed in this Fish & Chips salad post are that of our own.
Fish & Chips is one of my favorite meals to order when Jared and I go out to eat. But, it has to be codfish. I don’t really care for other types of fish like flounder used for fish & chips. I prefer the white, light, and flaky texture, and mild taste of cod. That is why I am LOVING the ALL new Gorton’s Pub Style Beer Batter Cod Fillets, 2 count. These extra large pieces of premium white meat cod are large enough to make a meal for 2.
Since I do consider myself a fish & chips snob, I have to admit–Gorton’s really knocked it out of the park with this product. When baked according to the package (easy peasy), these filets crisp up to pure deliciousness. Each filet is battered in real draft beer, and you can totally taste the difference with each golden, flaky bite. In fact, I really need to take date nights in because these Pub Style Beer Batter Cod Fillets are my new all time favorite!
Of course, you can simply prepare them and enjoy them with some fries or a salad, but I wanted to make a more upscale, and fun kind of meal. A meal that my husband and I would enjoy with every bite! I truly think this Mouthwatering Fish & Chips Salad with Potato Croutons is a must-try!
Plus, despite the fact that it might look gourmet, this meal is not hard to prepare. In fact, you could totally pull off a romantic dinner for 2 with this recipe! But, you might want to buy 2 packages of fish because it is *that* good!
Salads are some of my favorite ways to eat foods. You can do so much with them due to their endless versatility.
Rather than make bread-based croutons, I wanted to take my own play on fries, and make potato croutons. Similar to home fries these oven-baked golden bites of goodness pair so well with the fish and homemade tartar sauce & cole slaw. The sweet slaw flavors pair perfectly with the tangy tartar sauce dressing and provide the perfect amount of flavor for the seasoned potato croutons.
The best part is this meal took 30 minutes to make. I used my air fryer for the fish (you can use an oven too) and I used the oven for the potatoes.
I used tarragon to really make the flavors of the slaw & dressing POP. Tarragon has such a fresh flavor and pairs so well with seafood.
To get the dressing thinner, I used lemon juice, mayo, tarragon, sweet relish, onion, and garlic powder, black pepper, and green onion, but I blended it until creamy. This dressing really buttons up the flavors of this dish and will make your mouth water.
If you love quality fish, and a good salad I totally suggest you recreate this Mouthwatering Fish & Chips Salad with Potato Croutons. You will not be sorry!
