What's For Dinner? Zesty Fish Po' Boys

What's in your freezer that could be tonight's dinner? And no, I don't mean heat-and-eat frozen dinners. I'm talking about jump start frozen foods such as fish and chicken tenders. With easy and quick recipes, dinner can be on your table faster than you think......making everyone happy. Even the cook.

I found this recipe way back in the early 2000's in an old Southern Living magazine. As we ALL love fish, this is a true crowd pleaser here in the Porter household. And the truth is, my kids can make this meal without Mom in the kitchen.....a huge PLUS for me! Hope your little family enjoys this quick fix dinner....ENJOY!


  • (11-ounce) packages frozen breaded fish fillets 
  • (12-inch) French bread loaves
  • 1 cup regular or light mayonnaise 
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Creole mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce 
  • 4 large green leaf or Romaine lettuce leaves

  • Bake fish fillets according to package directions. Set aside, and keep warm.
  • Cut bread in half crosswise. Split each half lengthwise, and toast.
  • Stir together mayonnaise and next 6 ingredients. Spread mixture evenly over cut side of bread halves. Place lettuce and fish on bottom bread halves; top with remaining bread halves. Serve immediately.

  • I use Gorton's Southern Fried Country Style Breaded Fish Filets.
  • If there are tomatoes in the house, I throw a few slices on my Po'Boy. Just my personal preference.
  • If you don't have time to make your Po'Boy sauce, use a coleslaw dressing. I love Marie's Coleslaw Dressing. 
  • I usually have a package of coleslaw mix in our fridge....I like the extra crunch on sandwiches. I mix up a batch of coleslaw with dressing and add to our Po'Boys, in place of the Po'Boy sauce.

Pack your freezer with quick start foods that 
make getting dinner on the table quick and easy.....'ll be glad ya did!
