fish essentials: comfy cod sammie

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.

    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.
