One of the things that keeps my husband from getting too homesick is the amazing fish we have here on the West Coast. Honestly, I can’t think of a more comforting meal for an Islander (East or West) then fish and chips. So it was brutally disappointing when the fish and chip dinner we went out for was utter crap. Normally I would say something but we were at the end of a long outing, had hungry kids and it just felt like more effort then eating what was tolerable and calling it a night.
Fortunately, I had bought some Pacific cod earlier that day and the next evening I decided to make up for our horrible dinner, especially since I felt responsible for picking the restaurant…
I’m not sure why I decided on a fish sandwich instead but it seemed like a brilliant idea and I’m so glad I did. Way less scary hot oil, and it’s a lot healthier too. I found another blogger’s post on how to cook fish perfectly and damn it worked, check it out HERE. We topped the sangie’s with shredded cabbage and a home made tartar sauce. I now feel completely redeemed for my crap choice of restaurants and have a new dinner to add to my weekly meal plans.
