Homemade fish sandwiches

They have frozen fish fillets, unbreaded and inexpensive in the frozen seafood section at your regular grocer now. The standard price is $3 - 5 for four whole fillets, indvidually wrapped, of tilapia, catfish or cod, which is a great deal. I've found a great use for these to feel like you are eating out a cafe at home:

- Take a fillet out of the bag and put it on a plate / bowl in the sink - run cold water over it for ~5 min until defrosted.
- Meanwhile, prep your slaw: shredded cabbage, carrots and onions, mixed with a few tablespoons of vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Add fresh ginger for an asian flare.
- Make your aioli: a tbl of mayo, minced garlic, tsp of lemon juice and some diced parsley (i've used dried and its been just fine)
- Dry off the fillet well with paper towels, then sprinkle both sides with Cajun Spice and flash fry on both sides in a tbl of oil
- Slice a baguette (or any other heary bread) and slather with aioli, then top with the fish fillet and the slaw.
