How to Make a Quick Filet of Fish Sandwich

Here’s an idea for a quick sandwich, which takes less time and effort than you would think.

Sauté (click here for video
instructions) a filet of fish (I used black sea bass), put the filet on a bun or bread and add lettuce, tomato and coleslaw.

To prevent the fish from sticking to the pan when cooking, use a non-stick pan (cast iron is best). The goal is to get a crisp, brown exterior.

Your own filet o' fish sandwich in less than 10 minutes!

How does this compare to the McDonald's Filet-O-Fish?

Tastes a million times better, plus I actually knew what I was eating!

This looks amazing. I want one right now!

Chef Rob, can you please sometime address (or if you already have, refer me to an archive) the emergence of tilapia on menus everywhere-- what type of fish it is, how raised and/or caught, nutritional value, problems, etc. I generally love fish and I have really tried to like tilapia, but I have had some fishy bad-tasting tilapia and I have been avoiding it since then. Is it true that it's a bottom-feeder like catfish?

Here's a recent post I wrote that has more info about tilapia. Hope it helps.
