I wasn’t too impressed with this recipe for a number of reasons. It’s basically a fried fish sandwich with very basic lettuce and what tastes like taco seasoning for spread. Bleh. I mean, it wasn’t terrible, but after a month or two of Blue Apron this one ranks dead last.
Ingredients? You’re looking at them. Fish, bread, lettuce. That’s about it.
I guess the upside to this one is that it was quick to prepare. Chop a few veggies while you’re frying the fish.
One thing that was confusing was how to cut the fish. It said to cut it in half, but I didn’t understand why. I thought perhaps they meant slice it lengthwise, so make thinner fillets, thus crispier fish (more breading), but my knife wasn’t sharp enough to do this. So I cut a few pieces in whatever I felt like.
Nothing really turned out differently, so you could probably not cut them at all. At least then you wouldn’t have to deal with fried fish pieces falling out while you’re trying to eat your sandwich!
The “spicy lime aioli” was just mayo, lime juice, and seasoning which mostly tasted like cumin (think ground beef tacos).
One problem that rose was dryness of the sandwiches. Maybe I over-toasted the bread, but there certainly wasn’t enough sauce to un-dry things. Remember, you still have to toss the salad in the same sauce. Yawn.
Bleh. The salad was pretty bad, and the sandwich was dry. I’m all up for sandwiches for dinner. The cuban style sandwich they sent a few weeks ago was amazing! Original Recipe for catfish sandwiches.
