  1. Tartar Sauce: Mix together ingredients; cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Alaska Cod Cakes: Fill a large sauté pan or stockpot with enough water to cover seafood; bring to a simmer.
  3. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod under cold water. Turn off heat and gently add seafood to water; return heat to a simmer. Once simmering, cover pan tightly and cook 4 to 5 minutes for frozen seafood or 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.
  4. Turn off heat and let seafood rest in liquid for 5 minutes, or until seafood is opaque throughout.
  5. Remove cod from water; cool slightly and flake into small pieces.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together chipotle powder, pepper, onion powder, thyme and salt.
  7. In a larger bowl, place cod flakes, fresh bread crumbs, egg and garlic. Sprinkle on seasoning blend; mix thoroughly. Form mixture into 8 cod cakes.
  8. Sauté cakes in olive oil until browned on both sides. Keep warm.
  9. Assembly: Spread about 1 tablespoon tartar sauce on bottom halves of slider buns. Top each with about 2 tablespoons lettuce and a cod cake. Spoon on additional 1 tablespoon of tartar sauce; close with bun tops.
