One of my favorite meals I remember having in Destin, FL was at a fabulous restaurant near the Destin Harbor Boardwalk. My sister, daughter, and I sat down and I had a delicious fish sandwich that was perfectly memorable. Tender, warm, fish, toasted bun, slathered in yummy tartar sauce with cool crispy vegetables. Each bite was the perfect bite.
Fish Po' Boy Sandwiches
So when Sue suggested we make fish dishes that meant "comfort food" to us, I couldn't help but think of that delicious warm sandwich. Po'Boys are such simple food - easily customizable to whatever seafood you have on hand, topped the way you like them best. Use a batter and fry your seafood, or crumb coat it and baked it if you want a crunchier layer. Add whichever fresh veggies you like best on your sandwich!
Fish Po' Boy Sandwiches
1 Tablespoon of low sodium Cajun seasoning (or blackening seasoning)
¼ cup of olive oil
2 pounds of cod, cut into 4 fillets
4 toasted hoagie buns
8 leaves of lettuce
1 - 2 thinly sliced tomatoes
1/2 - 1 cup of tartar sauce
- Combine the Cajun seasoning with the olive oil and rub on both sides of fillets (adjust amount of seasoning per your personal tastes, if mix is not low sodium you will probably want to use a little less to avoid an overly salted taste).
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat, and sear fillets on both sides, cooking just a couple minutes per side until fish flakes easily and they are cooked through (cooking length will depend on fillet thickness).
- When fish is cooked, assemble sandwiches by smearing about 1 TBS tartar sauce per hoagie roll, placing fish on the bottom half of roll and topping with lettuce and tomato.
