Erica's Kitchen: Mexican-inspired Fish Sandwich


I LOVE Mexican food, and there are days when I really just want the flavors, but don't have time to go out and get tacos, or I'm home late and don't have the right ingredients. A sandwich is always easy to cook and easy to eat, and this is something both my daughter and I can eat with neither of us complaining.

You can take a basic fish sandwich and turn it into something special. In this case, I was craving Mexican, so I took components of a fish taco and turned it into a sandwich, with salsa fresca, shredded cheese, garlic-paprika yogurt aioli and cilantro.

Ingredients:

Fish:

White Fish Fillets ( I used Dory) cut in half, remove ends.
Lime juice
Dash of soy sauce
Pepper, to taste
Flour
Egg
Cumin
Salt
Panko Bread Crumbs
Shredded Taco Mix Cheese

Salsa Fresca

Tomato
Onion
Cilantro
Lime Juice
Pepper
Salt

Garlic-Paprika Aioli

1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic
pepper
salt
lime juice
paprika, to taste

How to:


  • Marinate your fish in soy sauce, lime juice, pepper and cumin for at least thirty minutes.
  • While  fish is marinating,  Make salsa fresca-chop tomato, onion, cilantro and toss together with lime juice and salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Make Garlic Aioli. Put all ingredients in a food processor. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Add cumin, salt and pepper to panko bread crumbs, Dip fish in flour, then egg and lastly, bread crumbs and fry until cooked through and crispy on the outside.
  • Put the fish filet on bread, add a generous a mount of cheese, and pop in the oven or toaster until melted. Top off with salsa fresca, garlic- paprika aioli and cilantro.
  • Enjoy!
