Need an easy dinner? This recipe is for you! Crispy, golden fried fish fillets on a bun with your favorite toppings! So good!
Confession... I'm a huge fan of fried fish. Minnesota is known for it's 10,000+ lakes and with all those lakes, comes some pretty amazing fish. I spent a weekend on the boat with my brother at the cabin this summer and enjoyed every minute of it. I'm pretty sure it was totally laugh-worthy with me singing "Hey fishy fishy" every 5 minutes when I got another bite on the line.
While this recipe doesn't use fresh fish from the lake, it's still quite amazing! Tilapia is our go-to fish when we don't have lake fish available. It's reasonable and very easy to cook with. You can use any white fish you prefer with this recipe and it will still turn out perfect every time.
The panko breadcrumbs add a crispy breading to the fish when fried and it's great for these fish sandwiches! In the short amount of time it takes to actually fry the fish, you can have the entire meal ready within 20 minutes! You already know quick and easy is the theme around here, so this recipe fits right in with the rest! We add tomatoes, red onion and spinach, along with some tartar sauce for the perfect sandwich! A slice of cheddar cheese is delicious too if you wish to add that. Enjoy!
Easy Fried Fish Sandwich
Heat the oil in a skillet to medium high heat.
In a shallow dish, combine flour, lemon pepper, panko and salt and pepper if needed.
Whisk the egg in a separate dish.
Once oil is fully heated, dip the fish in the egg mixture, then coat the fish with the panko mixture and add to frying pan. Cook for 3 minutes on the first side, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
Assemble sandwiches and serve immediately.
