This superb fried fish sandwich is inspired by the Black Grouper Sandwich served at Dockside Dave's in St. Pete Beach, Florida.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut fish into 3-inch strips. Sprinkle evenly with 1 tsp. Greek seasoning, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper.

Step 2

Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, remaining 1 tsp. Greek seasoning, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper; stir well. Add 2 cups cold beer and egg, stirring until thoroughly blended and smooth.

Step 3

Pour oil to a depth of 2 to 3 inches into a Dutch oven; heat to 375°.

Step 4

Dip fish strips into batter, coating both sides well; shake off excess. Fry fish, in batches, 2 minutes on each side or until golden (do not crowd pan). Drain on paper towels.

Step 5

Spread top half of each bun evenly with tartar sauce. Place 1 lettuce leaf and 1 tomato slice on bottom half of each bun; top each with 2 fried fish strips and top halves of buns.

I would make this dish again. The breading came out crispy and gave the fish a moist buttery flavor with just a hint of spice. I used halibut but sliced the fillets in half so they were only about a 1/4" think. I was able to use less oil and the fish cooked quickly.

Fabulous! I never fry anything, but was craving Long John Silver's and boy did this fit the bill!! I used tilapia, and skipped the sandwiches, just did the fish. Also, I substituted Old Bay for the Greek herb mixture. And because I used thin fish, was able to use maybe 3/4 of an inch of oil.
