Shallow Fried Cod Fillet Sandwiches

I received a g-chat from Andy asking me if I remembered how good the Long John's Silver fish wraps were back in college.  This short conversation put us both in the mood for a homemade fish sandwich.  I ran out to Trader Joe's at lunch and purchased a few frozen cod fillets.

  • 1/2 c multi-grain baking mix
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp creole seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c 1% milk, or until you have a thick batter

Heat 3-4 Tbsp grape seed oil over medium heat in a cast iron or oven proof skillet.  Mix batter together and dredge fillets.  Cook 3-4 minutes per side and then bake in a 400 degree oven for 5-6 minutes (my fillets were really thick.)

While this was baking I sliced a tomato and avocado, and whipped together 3 Tbsp EVOO mayo with 2-3 tsp dill pickle relish.

Served with halved brussel sprouts that were tossed in 1 Tbsp EVOO, s&p.  Baked at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Drizzle with 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar when they come out of the oven.

Those look great! We'll have to try your recipe. We've never had great luck with cooking fish (other than salmon) - there is even an incident in our culinary past called "the pancake fish disaster." We don't speak of it.
