Fish Fillet Sandwich

So I have a secret love over at McDonald's.  Yes, I said it.  McDonald's.  Wait though, it's not a burger.  It's their Filet o' Fish Sandwich.  I've always loved it, even though it is "bare."  Bun, a smidge of tartar sauce, and cheese.  A little boring, but so yummy.

So when Gorton's® approached me to review a few of their products, I thought I'd make my own version of the infamous sandwich.  I grabbed a bag of their Fish Sandwich Fillets and went to work.  One of the important aspects of this sandwich is the tartar sauce.  Frankly, I'm not a fan of store bought tartar sauce.  It's too sweet, too many preservatives that I can taste.  I'd rather make my own.

And then you MUST dress the sandwich up a tad.  Enter cheese, tomato, and cabbage.  I absolutely love cabbage with fish.  I love the crunch that it gives to a piece of fish.  I use it all the time with my Fish Tacos.  But I have to tell you, I loved the Fish Sandwich Fillets.  They were crispy, the fish was fresh tasting and had substance. But most of all, they were not greasy!  They really made the substance of this sandwich.
