    I have had quite a few fish sandwiches but none as good as this one. This is great fish by itself but it definitely goes well with a flakey grill toasted bun. I used Tilapia and Flounder ? both turned out amazing. The Panko bread crumbs make the coating light and crunchy. Where has this recipe been all my life!
    wow!! Hands down, best fish sandwich I have EVER had!! I used tilapia and it turned out amazing. Make sure you find a good soft baguette or your jaw will hate you, the grapeseed oil is a MUST....also with the sauce, you can omit the sardines without losing flavor...making this again tonight...had to write a review because this sandwich is over the top tastey!
    I used fresh caught striped bass and it was outstanding. That particular fish was so mild, I think it would be even better with catfish. The sauce is killer. I added pickles, but ended up taking them off--not needed. The sauce would be great with fried oysters!
    This meal was devoured in minutes! My son even ate the fish and he thinks he hates! We told them they were crabby patties!
    This was a fast and easy recipe. I used basa fish and corn meal( that's what I had on hand) it was still really crunchy and tasty. Thanks Aaron!
    Well glad to say that this was a great little meal and everyone enjoyed it thanks a lot much love Ladyday
    Aaron has done it again! This is the first flounder recipe I've tried that we both liked. It's very easy to make and very, very good. The sauce is perfect with it.
    The fish is nice and crispy, then I just had to keep eating as I could not figure out where the sauce played a part, then realized that it just blends in and the sandwich would not be the same without it. I have never been so intrigued by food.
    This fish is off the "hook" good. My husband loved it. Big daddy you have one of the best show on foodnetwork.
    This fish sandwich is amaaaaazing!! You must also make the relish.. Both are very easy to make..
    I loved it and so did my wife. I left out the romaine since neither of us like it and added cucumbers instead. The remoulade was outstanding, best fish sandwich I've ever had.
    As usual, Aaron's recipes are easy to make and delicious! I have made this sandwich on several occasions and it always gets rave reviews. The show is entertaining and I ALWAYS want to try the recipes. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the show and the recipes. I love, love the show!!!!!!
    I love your show!!!! I have made many of your recipes and love them all! Food network should run reruns of your show, it is truely one of the BEST on the channel. I could watch a marathon of your show and then spend the next week trying them.
    This is the first time Ive used one of your recipies and Im extremely happy that I husband said it was the best fish sandwich he ever had...that is a major compliment because he's Bajan :)

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    This fish sandwich rocks. The sauce is fantastic. We used a softer bread than a baguette but that's the only change we made. The flavor exploded from the bread. And left over it's just as good.
    I used this recioe just this passed weekend and it was a huge hit with my girlfriend and I. I think I'm going to try the cheesesteak soup next. I'll let you know how that turns out.
    I made the fish sandwich using flounder for lunch, my husband loved it so much he had leftovers for dinner!
    Very cruncy and had great flavor, LOVED the sauce!
    I used this recipe with Red Snapper and with whiting too! Very quick to make and crunchy. Love it. I actually ate this and leftovers for the week, sometimes on top of salad, sometimes as a sandwhich
    Excellent Friday night dinner with good cold beer!
    I love it. A great Friday night meal.
    This fish sandwich was off the hook! What! All that flavor in one dish. Pair it with the carrot slaw to make a great meal. Trust me, it'll be a hit! We're already planning our Super Bowl menu...and it includes Big Daddy's Fried fish sandwiches and carrot slaw.
    Easy and good. The kids loved it
