Grilled Fish Sandwich

grilled fish sandI am a fan of the fish sandwich. This wasn’t always the case. There’s a fabulous place we eat at every few years in Florida called Gramma Dot’s and they have a terrific grouper sandwich. Because that is so amazing, I’m now open to other fish sandwiches. Martha has a recipe for Grilled Fish Sandwich with Cabbage Slaw in July Everyday Food (no link on Martha’s site).

I made this recipe, but there was some improvisation involved. The recipe says to use thick sandwich bread. Instead I cut a ciabatta loaf in half lengthwise and made open faced sandwiches. Martha also says to shred cabbage, and let it sit with salt and then drain it. I bought a bag of cole slaw mix and used that.

I used salmon for the fish and just grilled it. I mixed my coleslaw mix with mayo and vinegar. We found that we needed to put some mayo directly on the bread. And I always squeeze some lemon over the fish in the sandwich, which really brightens it up. This sandwich was good. The slaw was good, but I would have been just as happy with lettuce and tomato. I also think grilled the bread might have added some extra flavor, so maybe I’ll try that next time.
