Nashville Hot Fish Sandwich With Gorton’s Seafood

This post is sponsored by Gorton’s. All opinions are our own!

This spring, we’re adding more seafood to our diet. We’ve been trying to find lighter alternatives to some of our favorites, and also trying to find easy ways to do it. Sean absolutely loves fish sandwiches, and when we decided to partner with Gorton’s, we were so excited to get creative!

Gorton’s frozen seafood options make dinner so easy. The filets always come out crispy and the fish is so light.

We used their beer-battered fish filets to create our take on a Nashville Hot Sandwich and we’re now obsessed! We’ve been loving the new Nashville Hot trend and this sauce is great on everything. We topped it with a cilantro-lime slaw and it turned out so delicious!

You can make your own slaw or just top it with your favorite store-bought slaw. These sandwiches were definitely better than takeout. Let’s get started!
