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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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! item not reviewed by moderator and published

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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
