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.
White Fish Fillets ( I used Dory) cut in half, remove ends.
Dash of soy sauce
Pepper, to taste
Panko Bread Crumbs
Shredded Taco Mix Cheese
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic
paprika, to taste
- 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.
