Sometimes, when I sit down to write up a recipe post, I can’t find anything to say. This is one of those times.
Because, really, the beauty of this sandwich is that it’s so simple.
Grilled fish that cooks up quick on a George Foreman or other indoor grill.
Cajun seasoning kicks the flavor up a notch or three.
Homemade tartar sauce that is just mayo with a little sweet relish stirred in.
Put it on a bun, serve it with fries and carrot sticks or salad. It’s a little out of the ordinary, but casual and easy enough for a weeknight supper.
The fish is in a bowl of water to thaw. It takes about 15-20 minutes to thaw like this.
I thought the sandwiches would be great with lettuce, tomato and red onion. Sadly, I didn’t have any of those.
