THE RECIPE

Barramundi Sliders with Lemon Saffron Aioli

The healthier side of sliders

Barramundi Sliders with Lemon Saffron Aioli

In our opinion, sliders just might be the perfect meal. They’re compact, handheld, and filled with everything you need for a complete dinner. And, their only limitation is your creativity. In these seafood sliders, Lauren sandwiches honey glazed roasted barramundi between buttery brioche buns. The firm flesh of the barramundi holds its meaty texture when cooked, creating a fish-filled sandwich that won’t fall apart. Instead of topping it with the usual slider toppings of ketchup and mustard, these are topped with a fragrant “quick” aioli made from mayonnaise, lemon juice, and just a pinch of saffron (expensive, yes, but a little goes a long way). Add a few leaves of arugula for some green, an extra squeeze of lemon, and you’ve got a delicious and creative dish that’s equally good for a quick weeknight meal as it is for a (nicer) Game Day snack.
