Mmmmm, I scaled down for one and thoroughly enjoyed this delightful fish sandwich. I used perch and the thin buns. I did use dried dill(I know, fresh would have been even better). Thanks! Made for My 3 Chefs event.
Delicious! I used fresh hogfish and it took about two minutes per side - think the cooking time should be much shorter for tilapia as well, if the oil is hot enough. I used peanut oil instead of olive oil. Yummy sandwich!
