Fried Redfish Sandwich

I love fish! If my bank account and/or my family allowed it, I would eat it every day. This fried redfish sandwich is a delicious addition to any repertoire of fish recipes!

When my husband brought home a few bags of redfish filets a couple of months ago, I knew I had chosen the right man! We slowly worked our way through the fish, making tacos and straight up grilling them, but then I decided I wanted to make my own recipes.

Since Lent had been going on, fast food restaurants have been laying on the fish options. One of my favorites was the fried fish sandwich at Popeyes. So, I decided I wanted to try my own spin on a fried fish sandwich…and what came out was a delicious fried redfish sandwich! You don’t need redfish filets to make this work, any white fish will do. Being a Texas girl, I do particularly love redfish so if you have them, I recommend that.

  • 4 decent sized redfish filets around 2 lbs
  • Oil I use vegetable
  • 1 C buttermilk
  • 3 T hot sauce I use Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T pickle brine I use Grillo’s
  • 2 C flour
  • 2 T Your favorite Cajun seasoning I use Cajun ninjas

Tartar Sauce ingredients:



  • If your fish is still “on the half shell” (skin still on) filet the meat.
  • Cut the filets into square/rectangle, sandwich sized, portions to be fried.
  • Heat a deep fryer, or frying pan filled with oil, to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the buttermilk, hot sauce, eggs, and brine in a shallow dish, such as a pie dish.
  • In a separate shallow dish, mix together flour and Cajun seasoning.
  • Pat fish fillets dry with a paper towel.
  • Dredge the fish through the egg mixture and then coat in flour mixture. Repeat this to get a good thick breading on your fish.
  • Cook fish for 3 minutes or until completely cooked and golden brown.
  • In a bowl, combine all tartar sauce ingredients.
  • Toast buns if desired.
  • Assemble your sandwich. Enjoy!
