A fish sandwich doesn’t have to be deep-fried to be delicious. Try our healthy crispy fish sandwich recipe with a tangy, zesty pineapple slaw. It’s worth taking the extra minute to chop pineapple slices instead of using crushed pineapple, which is too small and disappears into the slaw. Store-bought shredded cabbage-carrot mix saves time. Look for it in the produce section.

Good recipe!!

This was a good recipe. I made some alterations because I think when it comes to taste, we all have our own preferences. I did not add the yogurt to the coleslaw as other reviewers suggested and I added a little onion and just a little splenda but then I like a sweet coleslaw were others like it more pickled. I also did not add the crushed red pepper only because my husband hates anything spicy. All in all a really good recipe that you can tweak to fit your taste.

could be good with some alterations

I agree with the other reviewer who said the yogurt flavor overpowered the flavor of the slaw. I think that with just mayo it would have been much better. The yogurt is just too strong. Since the fish does not bring much to the table flavor-wise, this recipe is ALL about the slaw. Really meh overall.

easy, few ingredients, healthy, unique flavor combination
Wonderful, flexible slaw!

I made only the slaw and really liked it! The ingredients are things I typically have on-hand and the recipe size is such that I can easily adjust quantities to my taste. I used a small amount of cayenne pepper instead of the crushed red pepper, and I felt that it spread out the heat/balanced the yogurt taste much better this way. I've also made this using apple cider vinegar (ok so I usually have MOST of the ingredients on-hand), and it was great as well! If you're not a fan of fish, try it with chicken breast marinated with spicy brown mustard-- it's a great contrast to the creamy slaw! Overall, a solid, basic recipe that seems really flexible. Love it!

Slaw was inedible

I only made the slaw, not the fish. The slaw was terrible. I followed the recipe exactly. The yogurt taste was so strong that no one could eat it. Truly horrible flavor.
