Sandwich Essentials: Easy/Peasy Fish Burger

Andy Anderson !


This is my third fish sandwich... HEY, I like fish sandwiches.

This is a simple fish burger with a lot of comfy flavor. You want your fish and ingredients to be the freshest possible. Then serve it up on a nice soft bun with some great sauce or spread. I’ve got a great spread that I’ll talk about later, but you might have your own personal favorite.

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