The Perfect Fish SandwichPosted by in Food
One of the best places to eat in Southwest Florida is Gramma Dots on Sanibel Island. It’s a tiny little place in the middle of a marina, off the beaten path on the island. If you want to go during the busy season, be forewarned that people line up before they open to get a table for lunch, so get there early! Their homemade potato chips are to die for, but you also can’t beat their grouper sandwich. With all the wonderful fish we brought back from our fishing trip, I decided to make my own sandwich. The grouper we caught wasn’t in season, but we brought back a lot of wonderful mangrove snapper, so I used that.
Cut a fish filet about the size of your bun. Dunk it in an egg wash then coat it in breadcrumbs (I used gluten-free) that you’ve seasoned with salt and pepper and dill. Pan fry the fish in some olive oil until it’s cooked through and the coating is crunchy.
Spread mayo on both sides of your roll, then spread some Dijon mustard on one side as well. Place some lettuce and a slice of ripe tomato on the bottom. When the fish is done, place it on top. Next, squeeze a big wedge of lemon on top of the fish. Top with your bun lid and enjoy.
You can make this sandwich with other types of fish as well – halibut or haddock are choices that are easy to find.
