Are you looking for a tasty fish sandwich to serve at your July 4th family gathering? If yes, you’ve come to the right place. This Crispy Spicy Fish Sandwich is a delight. Full of flavor and stacked with fresh ingredients.
The fish in this Crispy Spicy Fish Sandwich is cod. The flaky white fish that holds up really well to being coated in batter and fried to a golden wonderfulness. The crispy cod is sandwiched between strips of iceberg lettuce, slices of beefsteak tomato and a delicious and soft onion brioche bun. A regular brioche bun is fine too.
So what did I use as a sauce? I hear you ask. Well, in the Crispy Spicy Fish Sandwiches in the image above, I added a hearty dollop of Smoked Paprika Aioli. However, in the recipe below, I have provided a sauce that aligns more closely with the flavors in the fish sandwich. Mayo, hot sauce, lemon and onion powder.
Now, if you’re a regular visitor to Diverse Dinners you will know that I am of Caribbean descent, so my go to hot sauce is a Caribbean hot pepper sauce made with scotch bonnet chiles. Caribbean hot pepper sauce is HOT folks, but it is so tasty and bursting with flavors from the Caribbean.
If you would like to give Caribbean hot pepper sauce a try, there are two that very easily found.
- Matouk’s Hot Pepper Sauce
- Grace Jamaican Scotch Bonnet Pepper Sauce
What’s in my fridge right now is a hot sauce from Barbados. Delish Bajan Hot Pepper Sauce. It’s delicious, just as its name suggests.
I usually make my own and at some point I will share the recipe with you. However, when I travel, I like to buy food items to bring something back from the culture I visited. I bought this bottle when I was in Barbados in August last year. The picture was taken some time ago, so there is very little left folks.
I had a wonderful time in Barbados. I joined friends from London to celebrate Cropover. What a blast I had. I partied at the Prime Minister’s house, caught sightings of Rhianna in her fabulous pink feathered carnival costume, and ate up a storm in the local restaurants. Here’s a pic of one of my fondest memories of the trip, my view from a great Asian fusion restaurant. This was my happy place watching the sea ebb and flow.
This Crispy Spicy Fish Sandwich is a good one folks. I love a crispy fish sandwich while sat around sipping on a beer. I plan to do a lot of sitting around sipping on something during the July 4th weekend. What are your plans? Feel free to let me know by dropping a comment down below.
