Green Goddess Dressing Preparation Instructions:
Place all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Set the dressing aside.

Fish Cakes Preparation Instructions:
In a large bowl combine ¼ cup Parmesan, 1 cup panko, salt, pepper, egg, and scallions. Unpack the thawed cod fillets and press them firmly between paper towels. Extract as much water as possible. Take each fillet and shred it with your fingers or a fork, placing the shreds into the bowl with Parmesan and panko. Mix well. Press ¼ cup portions into cakes. Once cakes are formed, mix the remaining ½ cup panko and 2 Tbsp Parmesan on a small plate and press each side of the cake into the coating. Heat oil on medium heat in a large wide skillet. Place as many fish cakes in the skillet as possible, making sure not to crowd them. Cook each fish cake 2 minutes per side. Serve on slider buns with the green goddess dressing and your favorite toppings: pickles, cheese, red onion, sliced tomatoes...

Serving Suggestions

Spray a ¼ measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray to help form patties- they pop right out into a perfect slider shape.

If you have a picky eater, sub out the green goddess dressing for creamy ranch.
