What is in a Bermuda Fish Sandwich

  • Local caught fish floured and fried
  • Melted cheddar cheese
  • Homemade tartar sauce
  • A heaping dollop of slaw
  • Sliced tomato

It is all packed between 2 slices of buttered whole wheat or raisin bread. The combination of sweet, tangy, salty and crunchy is a whole explosion in the mouth.

Choosing the Right Fish

This fish sandwich is fully loaded with fresh cod, melted cheddar, Bermudian coleslaw, freshly sliced tomato, homemade tartar sauce and homemade raisin bread.

Living in the UK calls for improvisation so a pack of fresh Cod Fillet always does the trick, but any white meat fish works just fine.

Usually, the fish is lightly floured then fried, however Cod is slightly thicker. Adding a double coating will allow the Cod to steam on the inside while its frying which makes a more tender fish.

Quick Tip:

Marinate the fish with a little salt and hot sauce before dipping in the flour- egg mixture and the result is a well flavored fish inside and out every time.

If using a thinner white fish such as Sea Bass or Tilapia, a single coat of seasoned flour will work fine.
