I would also steam the buns for a few seconds before serving

This recipe looks great as I just love McDonald's fish sandwich! However for a more authentic taste: steam the buns, don't grill them.

I really enjoyed this copy-cat recipe! It tasted just like Mc Donald's fillet of fish sandwich...the sauce was just right. I didn't fry my fillet (as was suggested) as I just didn't want the extra fat, but it still tasted spot on. Thanks for sharing!
