I know the name is long. I just can’t figure out how to describe it in a baby version. It’s just sooooo good and I have to let you know in the title exactly what this is.
Buffalo coleslaw? Yes, absolutely. Have I ever made it before? I don’t think so, but there’s a first for everything. How else to compliment mango salsa on top of blackened fish?
As far as the buns, I’ve made pretzels before. But this particular recipe is by far the best I’ve ever made. I found it on My Life As a Mrs., but keep in mind I changed a couple of things. I’m sure hers are delicious, but sometimes I tend to tweak according to what I have on hand.
To begin with, I didn’t use quite as much flour. I probably used closer to 4 cups as opposed to 4 1/2. I also used half all-purpose flour and half bread flour. I didn’t know how it would come out, but I’m glad I gambled. Lastly, I didn’t realize that I was out of granulated sugar and I subbed with powdered. Look, I’m not a huge baker, so I didn’t know if it would make a difference or not, so I threw caution to the wind.
If you know me, you know I have absolutely no patience. I wanted to make pretzel buns.
So, damnit, I did it and it all worked.
God love that man.
This sandwich is a very good combination of summer – light and fresh with the mango salsa and fish, nice and spicy with the blackening seasoning (not to mention the buffalo sauce in the slaw), but just enough heartiness with the pretzel bun.
How good would this be sitting in a beachside restaurant patio with an ice cold margarita? I just love summer.
