My new, “The Cowboy Way Fish Sandwich”, is your answer to no more plain-o-plain-o, drab, boring, dry as sawdust, fish sandwiches!! These Texas-style fish sandwiches shouldn’t even be in the “seafood section” of the menu!!
These rockers need to be right up there in the top-billing BURGER section!!
Who said that fish sandwiches had to be boring with almost no toppings? They sure didn’t ask me when they were making the rules!!
So I’m here to break them!
ALL of them!!
Starting with a more potent sauce than just plain ol’ tartar sauce. (*Don’t misjudge. I LOVE tartar sauce!) But I’ve had it since I was a small child, and it isn’t anything special when you’re craving something more, something over-the-top, something that makes you say, literally out loud, …OMG!!!! This is good!!!
Ya know what I mean?
(*My Copycat Sriracha Big Mac Sauce! A perfect match!!)
So I decided to go all out and just see if I could create something fun that was WAY more delicious than just a plain ol’, joe average, blasé fish sandwich.
Something I’d be proud to serve!
And that I did.
Since I had some leftover homemade Sriracha Big Mac Sauce hanging out in the fridge, that was my starting point and sent me in the right direction!
I also happened to have a couple of jars in the fridge of some primo homemade Jalapeño Cowboy Candy, homemade Bread ‘n Butter Pickles, and homemade Garlic Dill Pickle Slices!
THIS sandwich was about to ROCK.
(*These are my Bread ‘n Butter Pickles!)
(*This year I sliced my homemade Garlic Dill Pickles instead of making spears
so that we could use them on burgers and sandwiches!)
This year’s dill pickles!
And the flavor train doesn’t stop there!
I also added cheese, of course, because I’m a total cheesehead.
Along with some finely shredded lettuce, thinly sliced red, ripe, and juicy tomatoes from my garden….and…
…some thick slices of crisp-cooked and peppered bacon!!!
Bacon. Because it’s bacon…
…and bacon makes everything better!!
And “The Cowboy Way Fish Sandwich” was a HUGE hit!!! Omg was it ever! BEST fish sandwich I have ever had! I went with my Jalapeño Cowboy Candy and my Sweet Bread ‘n Butter Pickles, but you can add whichever you like best!
So don’t be afraid to break the rules. Just go for it! Break them all!
I mean, after all, rules were made to be broken, right? Well, sort of.
As far as cooking goes…I don’t think there should be any rules to prohibit and stifle creativity. Just do what makes you happy and don’t worry about it.
Hope you all enjoy as much as we did!!
