Crispy fried cod fillets in a bun with your favorite toppings and homemade tartar sauce for an easy, healthy and delicious dinner!
This fried fish sandwich is so easy and quick to make, perfect for weekday dinners, top it with lettuce, tomato, cole slaw, onions, etc. Serve with chips or French fries.
Make this fried fish sandwich with your favorite white fish, hake, halibut, whiting, etc.
Here I used frozen cod fillet, if you are using frozen fish, it is always better to thaw them overnight to make sure all the frozen water will be released, pat them dry several times then you can cook them like any fresh fish.
I find that that these fried fish sandwiches are better served at least lukewarm.
Tartar Sauce is made with mayo (homemade or store bought), pickles, shallots and tarragon mostly, you can find my recipe here
I made my own buns, they are brioche style buns, perfect for sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers or dinner rolls! I always make a batch, split them and store in my freezer, find my recipe here
