Tangy Fish Sandwiches

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Deb G

Original recipe is for grilling grouper, which I love, but I have only made it with Mahi-Mahi. DH and I think it's delicious, and it's quick and easy as well. We use the tartar-like sauce with other fish as well. From my Low-Fat Way to Cook (1993). ***See note at bottom of directions for alternative cooking method.

Loved it! I used freshly caught red snapper, and left the tomato off. (No good tomatoes available right now! Grilled fish is one of my favorites! Thanks for sharing....made for PAC Spring 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, oil, pepper, and paprika; stir well.
  2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals.
  3. Place fish on rack, and grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with lemon juice mixture.
  4. Combine mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients, stirring well; spread mixture evenly over both sides of hamburger buns.
  5. Place a piece of fish on bottom half of each bun. Top each with a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, and top half of bun.
  6. ***Note: I have also briefly marinated the fish in the lemon juice mixture and then pan fried in a minimal amount of olive oil rather than grilling.
