- american cheese
- Panko Bread crumbs
- one beaten egg
- Martin's Potato Buns either slider size or regular
- Equal Amount of chopped full sour pickle and japanese mayo regular mayo will not give desired texture or flavor
Start by making the tarter sauce, this one seems to simple but I tasted the sauce from the McDonald's Filet O Fish and using the Japanese mayo and full sour pickles gave it the desired texture and flavor.
Now filet your pollock, it's like cod but half the price and there is lots of it around so I chose it and the flavor was perfect. What you want to do is cut the portion the same size as the bun you are using see my photo for example.
You want it no more than 1/2 inch thick for the sliders I just sliced it in half after I portioned it and that was perfect.
Now get your breading station ready beaten egg in one bowl and Panko bread crumbs in the next. Filet into the egg wash, shake off excess and then into the panko making sure its really coated well and push in the panko to its evenly coated. These should go into the fridge for 10 min at least to set up.
Now you can deep fry these but I shallow fried them in olive oil. Its healthy and adds good richness to the coating. So hot pan about 1/2 inch of olive oil into the pan when its hot and you can tell by dropping some panko crumbs in and they should sizzle when they do your oil is ready.
Now fry the filets on each side until golden brown and make sure to get the edges as well as you can see I tilted the pan so they would semi deep fry for a min.
Now onto a cooling rack and add the American cheese slice making sure its the same size as the filet but turn it so the edges hang and into a 350 degree oven until the cheese is melted.
Now toast your buns for 30 seconds in the oven then its assembly time.
Bottom bun followed by the fish filet with the cheese, then put a good dollop of tarter sauce don't skimp here make sure again the entire filet is covered and finish with the top bun.
That's it! try this its about as close as you can get to a McDonald's Filet Of Fish but almost guilt free!
