      I agree with the previous review...the combination of the spicy Cajun rub and the cook goat cheese/mayo spread is perfect. I didn't make the rub but used one I had. Since I knew mine was uber-spicy, I used far less than the recipe called for and my sandwich still had a zing. Made for ZWT #9.

      Amazing!! This was a huge hit. My husband kept commenting about how delicious the sandwich was. Mind you, he doesn't like anything with cheese nor most sauces. I spread a small amt. of the goat cheese/mayo combination on his and he loved it on the fish sandwich. I think the mayo combo. helps to cool the cajun fish. It's the perfect match. We will definitely be making this again and again. Note: make sure your bread is not too thick or the sandwich will be stacked high! I used something other than the recommended ciabatta and it was too thick with the sandwich...although we made sure to manage! ;)

      Like another reviewer, I used a good cajun seasoning that I had on hand from Spice Merchants. We thought the sandwich was good, though we found the proportions to be a bit off. I bought a pound of salmon. This made enough for three salmon sandwiches on ciabatta. We spread the goat/mayo sauce on pretty heavily and we still had a little remaining after using generously on three sandwiches. If you are just making one serving, I would cut way back on the mayo/goat spread unless you intend it for other uses. I served the sandwiches with mixed roasted veggies. Made for Rookie Tag November 2013.
