Tilapia Sliders with Lobster Sauce
This sliders recipe uses fresh tilapia instead of the usual beef or chicken. Topped with a spiced lobster sauce, these grilled fish sliders aren’t small on flavor!
1 pound Regal Springs Tilapia Fillets, cut into 1/4-lb. pieces
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 cup + 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, divided
1/2 cup lobster meat, cooked, picked and roughly chopped
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons chives, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
dash of TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce
Iceberg lettuce, shredded
Roma tomato slices
4 soft brioche slider rolls (or any other small, soft roll)
Reserve 1 tablespoon lemon juice. In a separate bowl, make the lobster sauce: Mix together 1 cup mayonnaise, lobster meat, ketchup, remaining lemon juice, lemon zest, chives, mustard, Old Bay Seasoning and TABASCO® Sauce. Set aside.
Season Regal Springs Tilapia with salt and pepper and brush with a touch of grapeseed oil. In a hot skillet over an open grill, sear tilapia until firm and flaky (about 3 minutes per side). Drizzle cooked tilapia with the 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
Brush insides of buns with remaining mayonnaise; briefly toast buns on all sides.
To assemble sliders, place a dollop of lobster sauce on the bottom of each bun. Top with lettuce, tomato and grilled tilapia, then a healthy dollop of lobster sauce. Close sandwiches with tops of buns and serve immediately.
