Crispy Fish Sandwiches with Herb Remoulade

The Good News Grilling the fish and making a sauce with fat-free fromage blanc (a fresh, spoonable cheese) keeps the calorie count down in this variation on the classic fried fish-shack sandwich. While any white fish will work well here, catfish is a sustainable choice and a great source of vitamin B12.

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small skillet, heat the canola oil. Add the <em>panko</em> crumbs and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until they&#39;re golden, 5 minutes. Stir in the Old Bay and transfer the toasted crumbs to a plate.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the <em>fromage blanc</em> with the mustard, lemon juice, Tabasco, cornichons, parsley and tarragon and season the remoulade with salt and pepper.

  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Oil the grates. Grill the rolls cut side down until lightly toasted. Transfer the rolls to plates and spread with the remoulade.

  4. Brush the fish with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning once, until the fish is cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer the fish to a plate. Press each fillet into the <em>panko</em> and transfer to a toasted roll. Top with lettuce and tomato, close the sandwiches and serve.
