Crispy Cod Sandwich

20 Jan

I’m a big cod fan (as evidenced by the many portions of cod I had in Vancouver) but I don’t always think to buy it. We’re trying to eat more fish at home and while we love salmon & tilapia, we were due for a change. So to the  fabulous Bite Me cookbook we turned and tried this recipe out. The cod came out buttery with a great crispy cornmeal coating and the homemade tartar sauce that accompanied it? More, please. J substituted hamburger buns for onion buns and I think it came out better that way.

Serves 6.


1/2 c yellow cornmeal
1/2 ts salt
1/4 ts pepper
1/4 c milk
6 cod fillets
1 c mayo
1/4 c chopped pickles
1 tb lemon juice
2 ts Dijon mustard
pinch of cayenne (or more if you want it to be spicy!)
6 buns
shredded lettuce


1. Preheat your oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with foil and use some cooking spray to ensure the fish won’t stick.
2. Combine the cornmeal, salt & pepper in a bowl. In a separate bowl, pour the milk.
3. Dip the fish in the milk first, then dredge it into the cornmeal mixture.
4. Bake for 7 minutes. Then flip over the fishy and bake another 6 minutes.
5. For the tartar sauce,  whisk together the mayo, pickles, lemon juice, Dijon and cayenne.
6. Toast the buns and then smear the insides with the tartar sauce. Place the fish in the buns, top with lettuce and voila!
