Cilantro lime slaw is a great zesty side. It is fresh and easy to make in just minutes. Perfect side with Gorton’s Beer Battered Fish Filets, topping for tacos, burgers and sandwiches.

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all hanging in there. This past week has been a whirlwind of events here in Utah. We had many closures last Thursday which sent many into a panic and our stores got hit hard. We are now on quarantine here and schools are shut. Homeschool started for children across the state. I am grateful we have been homeschooling at our house for the past 5 years so my girls coming back home and doing school hasn’t been a difficult transition. They are used to being self starters and get to work. It’s been nice.That was until we had an earthquake here yesterday morning. That was scary and I hope another one like that (or bigger) never happens again. We can isolate ourselves and help with the virus spreading but we cannot outrun an earthquake.
Anyway, now more than ever people are in need of delicious recipes that are easy and inexpensive to get on their dinner tables. I made this creamy coleslaw to go with some beer battered fish filets from Gorton’s. These are delicious and so perfect for “fish Friday”. You can find them in the freezer section which means you can stock up on a few bags to have on hand for meals. They are a good source of protein, have no fillers, and are made with sustainable wild caught Alaska Pollock!
So grab yourself a package or two if you see some and make some of the coleslaw. It’s so yummy on tacos, pulled pork sandwiches or just as a side. My five year old even gobbles it all up.
Be sure to save the recipe to your Pinterest board.
Stay safe out there and enjoy this time with your family.
