Grilled Fish Sandwich – Grilled Blackened-Fish Sandwiches Recipe
A Florida cuisine in its own right, grilled blackened fish is a staple for your typical Floridian because of its rather rich taste, but it is attributed to how it is easy and convenient to make.
Whether it’s grouper fish, mahimahi fish or whatever white fish out there, all you need is some paprika to wrap it in and grill in a fiery put until it becomes juicy and a bit burnt to produce that crispy fish perfect for any occasion.
To start, prepare the following ingredients so we can start discussing on how you can whip yourself up some grilled blackened fish sandwiches:
- White fish fillets – four pieces of either grouper or mahimahi, or other white fish fillets of your choosing. This should weight around six ounces or one hundred seventy grams
- Salt – seasoned, iodized or Kosher to taste.
- Cayenne peppers – a pinch or two shouldn’t hurt
- Sandwich buns – hoagie or hamburger buns would be fine, four pairs
- Oregano – dried, half a teaspoon
- Thyme – dried, half a teaspoon
- Onion powder – quarter of a teaspoon
- Lettuce – iceberg or romaine for toppings
- Tomatoes – thinly sliced for toppings
- Paprika – two teaspoons
- Garlic powder – a quarter of a teaspoon
- Black pepper – ground, fresh, a quarter of a teaspoon
Steps on how to cook and prepare your Grilled Blackened-Fish Sandwiches:
Set up your place of grilling by gathering all of the charcoal that you are planning to use to grill the fish into one concentrated spot. Pour lighter fluid or a bit of kerosene into the middle of the bundle of charcoal and ignite it with a match or a lighter. As the fire in the middle is blazing, carefully move charcoals on top of the flame to ensure that all pieces of charcoal are licked by the flames, until each and every piece of charcoal is covered with ember, scatter and sort the charcoal pieces on adjacent sides of the charcoal grate to create a cleave in the middle that would serve as indirect fire wherein you can cook your fish. Put in the cooking grate onto the pit, place the lid over the grill and let the grill heat up for about five minutes or so. As for the grilling grate where you are going to place the fish, ensure to clean it out of any leftovers and lather it with oil.
For the meantime, gather altogether the oregano, black pepper, paprika, onion powder, thyme, garlic powder and Cayenne pepper into a small bowl and mix them to form your spice rub. As for the fish fillets, season each one with salt then spread into each one spice rub, ensuring that each and every fillet is brushed thoroughly with the spice rub.
On the hot side of the grill, you can start to grill the fillets until a thin spatula can be slid under the meat without much problem and each fillet is darkened. This could take around four minutes or so. Flip each fillet and do the same towards the other side. Once cooked, move the fish towards cooler side of the grill and continue doing so until the thermometer registers one hundred forty degrees Fahrenheit in the middle. Another method to determine if the fish is cooked is that the meat can be poked in the middle without resistance. Move fish to a plate and set aside.
For the buns, you can start toasting them onto the grill and after they are toasty, you can construct the sandwiches. Get the mayonnaise and spread it on each side of the buns. On the bottom bun, place the fish fillets and top with lettuce and tomatoes and seal with the other bun of the sandwich. For best results, serve immediately.
Whether it’s fried or grilled, having fish sandwiches either way is the best for whatever occasion. Not only is Fried Fish Sandwich healthy, but delicious, too!
