Grilled Fish Sandwich with Herby Mayo

27 Apr 2021

15 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

This is a lovely, light sandwich for a hot day – perfect for when you want something fresh but full of flavour. Cod loins are the best choice for this dish, as they’re thicker and easier to cook. Don’t worry about the fish falling apart a little bit on the grill – just wait until it releases itself naturally before turning, and use two spatulas to turn it over gently.

Ingredients

  • 2 cod loin fillets (approx 250g)
  • 1 lime
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon each mixed herbs (e.g. mint, parsley, tarragon, chives)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice, plus the rest of the lemon to serve
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped gherkin
  • ¼ iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • ½ small red onion
  • Sliced cucumber, to serve
  • White buns or soft white bread
  • Oil, for cooking

Heat two gas burners

Heat two gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to high. Once hot, use a piece of kitchen paper or a cloth to lightly rub the grill with oil.

5.

Place the fish fillets on the grill

Place the fish fillets on the grill and cook for a few minutes each side, or until just cooked through. Allow the fish to release itself from the grill before turning, and turn gently using two spatulas - but don’t worry too much if it falls apart either!​​​​​​​
