Lunchtime Fish Melts

I know it sounds strange, but I've found this is a quick and easy way to dress up your favorite fish for lunch. I use whatever fish we catch around here (snapper, flounder) but any grocery store fish filets should work just fine. Also, I recommend a cast-iron skillet.

ingredients

directions

  • Drizzle filets with lemon juice on both sides, then sprinkle with garlic powder.
  • Allow skillet to heat, then spray lightly with cooking spray (or just a small amount of olive oil).
  • Slice tomato and enough mozzarella to cover two slices of bread (2-4 oz. depending on thickness of slices).
  • Place fish in skillet and sprinkle with basil. Cook 2-3 minutes, adding lemon juice as needed. Turn fish over and sprinkle with basil. Cook another 4-5 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flaky.
  • Lighty butter one side of each slice of bread. Buttered sides go on the outside of the sandwich.
  • Layer mozzarella slices, cooked fish, and sliced tomato between slices of sourdough.
  • Remove any extra flakes of fish, oil, etc from skillet.
  • Place sandwiches in skillet (buttered sides out) and cook over low-medium heat until one slice of bread is"toasted" to desired darkness.
  • Using two spatulas, turn sandwiches over in skillet, taking care not to loose the tomato slices, and cook as before. Remove from skillet, slice in half, and serve.
