Grilled Fish Sandwich

Spread the love

As we continue to shelter at home, the boredom is leading to kitchen creativity. Good for us, bad for our waistline but, quite frankly, it’s worth it! So after I bought a beautiful piece of cod from my local market, we decided to try and make a sauce that was close to the magic sauce from our trip to Panama. If you read that blog, you will remember that I had a fish sandwich which was, according to the restaurant, the greatest fish sandwich in the world…I heard a challenge right away. So we made our own tasting contest. I made two different sauces and we had to pick our favorite – and one was like the magic fish sauce.

First I made a rub for the fish. I basically cleaned out all the half and quarter bottles of all kinds of chili – hot Mexican chili, ancho, cayenne, mixed chili, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I added a little olive oil to make a paste and coated the fish. I covered the fish and put it into the fridge for a few hours. Now the sauces.

For the first sauce – the magic sauce – I used sour cream, mayo, chopped capers, a little of the caper vinegar, dill, celery seed, salt and white pepper. For the second sauce I used sour cream, mayo, chopped pickled jalapeño, a small amount of siracha sauce, salt and white pepper.

One sandwich had arugula and one had mixed greens. I grilled the fish and dressed it with lettuce, tomato and the sauce on top and my spicey coleslaw on the bottom. There wasn’t a favorite – both where delicious!

So experiment and make some sauces and share them!!! I would love to hear from you!
