Spicy Fish Wraps and $500 Calphalon Gift Card Giveaway – {Giveaway Closed}

by Aggies Kitchen on November 19, 2012

I’m pretty excited about today’s post and giveaway, it’s my biggest giveaway I’ve had here on the blog and it’s for a product I love and have been using for a long time. I’m asked often about what kind of nonstick skillets I use and over the years, I can tell you, I’ve gone through quite a few and have stuck with Calphalon for as long as I can remember now.

I think it’s safe to say that my family uses our nonstick skillets almost daily. My husband is always cooking up eggs for us for breakfast, and I like to use them for frittatas, fish and quick vegetable sautes. Since I’m usually trying to keep the amount of oil and butter I use to a minimum, a good nonstick skillet is something I really depend on in my cooking.

(this is the Calphalon Unison Nonstick 10″ Omelet Pan – with only 1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil that I used for this recipe)

Fish is something I cook for my family usually a couple of times a week. I tend to broil salmon, but I really like pan frying seasoned white fish, like flounder or tilapia, for quick weeknight meals. It cooks up in just minutes and is perfect alongside veggies, over a salad or in a sandwich like the one I’m sharing with you today. Using a nonstick skillet like this Calphalon Unison one really cuts down on the amount of oil you have to use to get a nicely seared piece of fish. I only use about a 1/2 – 1 teaspoon each time I cook in my nonstick skillet and the food literally just slides out of the pan and onto your plate. Literally.

These Spicy Fish Wraps are perfect for when you are looking for something quick and light to make for lunch or dinner. All you need is a few ingredients – wraps, fresh veggies and fish – along with some kicked up mayo, and you’ve got yourself a meal you could feel good about. I always love a good fish sandwich but sometimes I really just don’t want to feel heavy after eating a big piece of bread. I opted to use whole wheat wraps to keep things lighter – and because whole wheat wraps tend to be full of protein and fiber, you still feel full and satisfied.

You can customize these wraps however you’d like. I used regular seafood seasoning this time around, but I love blackened fish so next time I make them I’ll use my favorite blackening seasoning instead. I served them alongside some roasted sweet potatoes, but they would be also great with some slaw or baked chips.

Spicy Fish Wraps

Yield: 2 sandwiches

Pan fried fish makes lunch and dinner come together incredibly quick and easy, especially when cooking it in a good nonstick skillet. The seasoned flour coating gives it a nice texture without extra calories. Enjoy these wraps all year long when you are craving something light and healthy.

Ingredients

  • 2 4-5 oz white fish fillets (I used flounder, but tilapia would be great too!)
  • 1 tablespoon flour (I used white whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tablespoon Chef Prudhomme Seafood Magic or any seafood seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil (or cooking oil of choice)
  • For spicy mayonnaise:
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • splash apple cider vinegar (optional)
  • tiny pinch salt and pepper
  • For wraps:
  • 2 wraps
  • shredded romaine
  • shredded carrots
  • thinly sliced red onion or red/yellow bell pepper, optional

Instructions

  1. Prepare spicy mayonnaise first by combining ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.
  2. Prepare your fish seasoning by combining flour and seafood seasoning in a large plate. Take your fish fillets and gently pat until completely dry on both sides. Set aside until your pan is ready.
  3. Pre-heat your nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add your oil to pan and let heat up. You can test if its ready by sprinkling a small amount of flour mixture in oil, if it sizzles, it's ready.
  4. Lightly coat your fish fillets in the flour and seasoning mixture, pressing down gently on both sides. Shake off any excess flour and place in your pan. Cook both fillets on bottom side for 2-3 minutes and carefully flip. Cook for about another 2 minutes or until browned on both sides. Carefully slide your fish onto a plate and set aside.
  5. Begin to assemble your wraps by spreading the spicy mayo on wrap, then topping with fish fillet and your veggies. Flip up bottom third of wrap, then pull in both sides into middle to turn into a "sandwich".

Notes

You can keep your kicked up mayonnaise simple and spicy by just using sriracha and mayonnaise. I mellowed out the kick (but kept the flavor) by adding a little drip of honey and splash of vinegar. The choice is yours.
