If you think that that creating a healthier fillet sandwich reception is an impossible task, re-evaluate . This fried fish sandwich with homemade tartare sauce is golden brown and prepared to serve in under half-hour , and it’s so good that it puts McDonald’s filet-o-fish to shame.
It’s wasn’t fairly often that I ate nutriment as a child so my first memory of eating at McDonald’s made quite the impression. Surprisingly, it had been my grandma Mary Jane—who was a make-it-from-scratch quite cook and always made sure I ate all my vegetables—who first introduced me to the nutriment chain. Yes mom, she DID take me there!
But that day, and each trip to Mickey D’s then , it wasn’t burgers that we ordered. it had been always the filet-o-fish. Apparently I’m not alone.
Ever since, I’ve had a love for the simplicity of that fried fish sandwich: an easy fish patty with a dollop of tartare sauce and a slice of melty cheese sandwiched between soft and warmed top and bottom buns. in fact I always had to request extra pickles on mine because some things just never change.
So it wasn’t much of a surprise that while grazing through the gorgeously photographed and totally creative new cookbook Modern Comfort Cooking from my friend Lauren Grier of the food blog Climbing Grier Mountain, my perusing came immediately to a halt once I spied her recipe for Halibut Filet o’ Fish Sliders, an ideal recipe to serve for a crowd.
And that’s how Lauren helped cure my fish sandwich cravings by delivering a completely delicious recipe we’ll definitely be making time and time again.
How to make a Fish Sandwich easy tasty delicious recipe that feels almost healthy
Usually when I’m given the selection of going grilled, baked, or fried, 98% of the time the healthier baked and grilled routes are those I take. But a bit like every rule, there are exceptions, and that’s why I always prefer fried fish for my tacos and can once during a while splurge on fried chicken, Because hey, this girls still gotta live.
The methods Lauren provides in making this recipe make me feel totally okay that this fish is fried.
First, there’s no cloyingly heavy batter here. Instead, we use a lighter mixture of panko bread crumbs and finely crushed un-salted Saltine crackers. Un-salted Saltines? Now that’s an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one. The panko breading adheres to the fish because of a fast dip in buttermilk, tenderizing the fish while still keeping things light. and since breadcrumbs allow more evaporation to occur, the fish stays crispy longer, where battered foods that keep all the moisture in, get soggy faster.
The second method that keeps things healthy-ish is that the fish is cooked quickly in 350°F oil. all sides of fish takes only 2-3 minutes to cook and spends less time within the oil therefore the fish doesn’t absorb that much of it. i exploit grapeseed oil thanks to it’s high smoke point, making it ideal for frying and a sandwich that takes just minutes to form . make certain to check the interior temperature of your fish fillets for doneness at 145°F and therefore the fish is flaky and opaque.
Once the fish is cooked, place it on a rack placed during a baking sheet instead of paper towels. this enables air to circulate all the way around, keeping your fish crispy on all sides.
The other key ingredients to form this fish sandwich swimmingly sublime are:
- A super soft, buttery brioche bun that’s been warmed on a tray within the kitchen appliance therefore the top of the bun stays soft, otherwise you could microwave it for 15-20 seconds instead. (*note: Lauren’s original recipe made these sandwiches as sliders, but I had a tough time finding brioche slider buns so I simply used the regular sized bun and made just three sandwiches rather than 4 sliders.)
- A thin slice of yank or cheddar , melted on rock bottom bun.
- Tartar sauce made with sweet relish for that tangy zip. Use Greek yogurt rather than mayo and lighten the entire load even more.
- Slices of sour dill pickles. Always more pickles. That’s my big twist on Lauren’s original recipe.
- If you’re really trying to up your fish sandwich game, sliced tomato, purple onion and shredded lettuce could certainly be added too.
