Fish Essentials: Comfy Cod Sammie

Andy Anderson !


I have been craving a fish sandwich for a long time. But, I did not want the typical “fried” fish variety, but something more akin to a po’ boy. This is not exactly what I would call a “po’ boy,” but it is fairly close.

For one, there are no Cajun spices, and I am using cod; as opposed to a more traditional shrimp.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Fish Essentials: Comfy Cod Sammie


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Cook the bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat, until crisp.
  5. Remove the bacon, and chop. Leave the bacon grease in the pan. We will need that later.
  6. Combine all the ingredients (including the bacon) for the dressing together in a bowl, and then salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. THE COD
  8. Take the sauté pan with the bacon grease, and place over medium-low heat.
  9. Sprinkle the cod with some salt and pepper, and add to the pan.
  10. Sauté, turning occasionally, until the cod is cooked through, and begins to flake.
  11. Allow the cod to cool to room temperature, flake, and gently toss with the dressing.
  12. Add some lettuce to the bottom of a toasted bun.
  13. Add some fresh tomatoes.
  14. Add the cod mix.
  16. My favorite way to serve this is on a butter-toasted brioche roll, with some freshly-sliced tomatoes, tipped with a bit of parmesan cheese, and chips on the side. Enjoy.
  17. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
