This post is in collaboration with Blue Circle Foods, Pretzilla & LunchSkins. I thought it might be fun to do a spin on a classic, fish and chips. However, this time I’m cooking with Blue Circle Cod Happy Fish on a pretzel roll and not any kind of pretzel roll, a Pretzilla Mini Bun! They are the perfect size for sliders and work well in this recipe.

It isn’t the first time I’ve collaborated with Blue Circle Foods. You might remember when I made salmon sliders featuring their Salmon Happy Fish a while ago. I love making a quick and simple meal using their Happy Fish.

With everything going on in the world right now and us being quarantined in our homes, let’s do an indoor picnic and have a little fun. Lunchskins paper bags are uncoated, and not treated with petroleum-based paraffin wax, soy or any other type of wax. There are 60 fun colorful stickers in every box. Fold, stick-n-GO!

3. Sauté the Happy Fish Cod in a hot pan for 4 minutes on each side. I would have grilled them if the weather was cooperating.

4. Toast your Pretzilla Mini Buns.

These delicious mini pretzel buns are perfect for this recipe. Each package of mini buns comes with a smaller package of salt for the top of the buns. Heat your oven to 400 degrees. I dabbed a little water on top of the buns and added some salt. Placed in the oven for 3-4 minutes until it was warmed through.

5. Time to build your cod on a pretzel roll sandwiches.

I took a toasted Pretzilla Mini Bun and spread a little tartar sauce on the bottom. I used store bought tartar sauce to make this as easy as possible. After that, add some pickle chips and then your Happy Fish Cod. Place the top of the mini bun on and voila! Sandwich is complete.

To make it more like an indoor picnic, wrap your sandwiches in a LunchSkin. These sandwich bags are the perfect addition to a picnic and come in some really cute designs.
