Cajun Fish Sandwich

Happy Saturday!! 🙂 I tried a blackened halibut fish burger a few weeks ago at Browns Social House. It was so delicious, I thought it might be a good idea to recreate it at home. I still do not eat meat, I just stick to seafood and vegetarian dishes, however my boyfriend is a meat eater and looooves bacon! I thought I would share a recipe with bacon as an option in the sandwich. 😉 I had my sandwich with just the cajun sole, and it was delicious. For the sauce I used the same Cilantro Lime Cashew Cream recipe from my fish tacos. The key here is to buy the tastiest, freshest buns you can find from your local bakery, finding fresh fish is also going to make this sandwich amazing. 😉  You could use any milder tasting fish like tilapia or halibut, I just used sole because that was what was fresh at my grocery store yesterday. This is a nice lunch or dinner recipe and would be great with a side salad or homemade potato wedges.
