Blackened Fish Sandwich

This winter I’ve been working my way through whittling down our supply of fresh fish that was caught over the summer and fall. Here on Chincoteague – we catch such a variety of fish, due to the fact that we have oceanside and bayside fishing in such close proximity to each other. With just a few fun days fishing on the water, we’re able to stock our freezer with fresh, wild-caught fish to last us through those cold winter months.

Everyone loves a good old-fashioned fish fry, but my favorite way to prepare a nice hunk of white-fleshed fish is to simply season it  and sear in the pan. Incidentally, it’s also one of the easiest ways to prepare fish…perhaps why I love it so much?

I top the fish with some homemade tartar sauce, lettuce, and tomato on a lightly toasted roll. I used drum fish on this particular day – but all types work well for this application. Striped bass, mahi-mahi, tilapia, and cod to name a few! I also highly recommend making your own seasoning blend if time allows, I find it’s so much better than any I’ve purchased in the past.
