Quick-Pickled Red Onions, for serving, recipe follows

Snowflake Rolls:

1 tablespoon honey

3 cups warm water (90 to 110 degrees F) 

3 tablespoons yeast 

4 cups high-gluten flour 

1/8 cup canola oil 

1 3/4 tablespoons salt 

4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for sprinkling

Quick-Pickled Red Onions:

3/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons sugar 

1 tablespoon salt 

2 medium red onions, sliced 

Tartar Sauce:

2 cups mayonnaise

1/2 cup sweet relish, drained of as much liquid as possible 

1/4 cup finely grated carrot 

1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste 

2 teaspoons black pepper 

Coleslaw:

1/2 cup grated carrot (about 1 medium)

1/2 medium green cabbage, coarsely sliced 

1/2 medium purple cabbage, coarsely sliced 

2 cups mayonnaise 

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 

3 tablespoons sugar 

Black pepper 

Directions

  1. Whisk together the cornmeal, paprika and some pepper in a bowl.
  2. Heat a cast-iron pan over medium-high to high heat and add several tablespoons oil. Dredge the haddock in the milk, then place in the cornmeal mixture to coat. Place the haddock into the pan and fry until golden brown, turning once, about 2 minutes per side. Remove and place onto the bottom half of the snowflake roll. Top with the lettuce, Quick-Pickled Red Onions and Tartar Sauce. Serve with Coleslaw.

Snowflake Rolls:

  1. Put the honey into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment. Add the warm water and yeast and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the high-gluten flour and mix on high until smooth. Let sit until doubled in size. Add the oil, salt and all-purpose flour, a little at a time, mixing until a ball forms on the hook.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured work surface and cut into ten to twelve 5-ounce dough balls. Knead and roll out into rolls. Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet and let rise for 10 minutes. Gently push down and sprinkle the tops with all-purpose flour. Bake until golden brown and soft to the touch, 18 to 22 minutes. Rolls may be used hot from the oven.

Quick-Pickled Red Onions:

  1. Mix together the vinegar, sugar, salt and 1 cup water in a bowl; stir well. Add the onions. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Tartar Sauce:

  1. Stir together the mayonnaise, relish, carrot, sugar and black pepper in a bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Coleslaw:

  1. Put the carrot, green cabbage and purple cabbage together in large bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar and some black pepper; mix well. Pour the dressing over the slaw and toss. Refrigerate until ready to use.
