New Life for the Fish Sandwich

leave a comment »

Many people know the fish sandwich as a meatless lunch on Friday. Although folks have been eating fish sandwiches since the turn of the century it took the McDonalds Filet-O-Fish sandwich for the fish sandwich to gain popularity nationwide. Since then much of the corporate restaurant world has jumped on the bandwagon.

     I have always loved Japanese food and had the good fortune of working with a Japanese Chef. I have taken those experiences and now bring to you the Salmon Fry Sandwich. The salmon is breaded using a standard breading technique (flour, egg and panko breadcrumbs*) after which I fried it to a golden brown. Instead of a traditional tartar sauce I am using a Wasabi** Mayonnaise. For the bun I chose an onion roll although any good quality roll (or bun) will work. To accompany I use tempura battered sweet potato instead of French fries.

* Panko breadcrumbs are available in Asian groceries and most supermarkets

** Wasabi is a green horseradish that is sold as a powder or in a tube. It is available in most Asian groceries and some supermarkets
