I love a good fish fry, but I know better than to try some of the methods out there in my home kitchen! I’ve picked a couple of my favorite recipes to get you that same taste, but without the hassle.
First up is an easy take on the beloved fried fish sandwich that is known as the "fishwich" at my house. You can create a fried-like texture with the help of your oven or air fryer. I like to plop mine on a DLM Brioche Bun slathered with my Wicked Good Tartar Sauce (GET RECIPE) and a piece or two of good ole American cheese.
When we're craving a classic fish sandwich, we're looking everything this Easy Fish Fillet Sandwich recipe has to offer! From the succulent white fish lightly coated in seasoned bread crumbs and "fried" in an air fryer or oven until golden brown to the flavor-packed tartar sauce to the melty American cheese to the buttery soft brioche bun it's all nestled within, this sandwich is one to make over and over again.
Next up—fried clams, a favorite of mine growing up. Remember Howard Johnson’s? Clams and ice cream for my birthday—hooray (yes, that really was on their menu)! You can make fried clams at home (sans the ice cream) with DLM’s gorgeous fresh clam strips. You will have no regrets when paired with a good tartar sauce, cocktail sauce, a splash of malt vinegar, or a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Just like its name says, this tartar sauce recipe is wicked good! Rich, creamy, and chock-full of bits of briny pickle and pops of salty capers, this sauce gets a boost of freshness thanks to the addition of fresh dill. Slather on fried fish sandwiches or dunk with fried clam strips!
