As inspired by The CROW, here are the delectable ingredients…
– 2 slices of seeded rye bread
– 2 slices of swiss cheese
– a couple red onion slices
– 2 pats of real salted butter
– 1 wedge of lemon
– 1 tbs of thousand island dressing
– 1 small fried hogfish fillet
So before we begin let me tell you about this delicious fish! Hogfish snapper is my #1 favorite fish to eat of all time. I seriously love it (look how pretty it is below!). I love it even more when my mom pan-fries it and makes it for me (and that’s exactly what she did!). So anyways, we got this fresh fish from my parent’s local seafood dude – John, at Flagler Ave Seafood in New Smyrna Beach. They cleaned it right on the spot and we took it home, dredged it in some flour and seasoned it with some instant gourmet and pan-fried it in butter for a few minutes on each side. It’s simple, quick, and to absolutely delectable!
So after you’ve got your fish fried up, go ahead and lay one slice of swiss cheese down onto the seeded rye bread.
Now it’s time for the fishy! oohhhhh ahhhhhhh…
Then you’ll want to lay down some sliced red onions. Feel free to pile on as many as you like! (warning: the more you add on, the more you need to pay attention to your friends non-verbals. remember no one likes stanky breath)
Now for the last piece of swiss cheese!
Almost done! You’ll finish building the sammie by putting on the top piece of bread.
Now that the sandwich is built, go ahead and melt one pat of butter in your pan on medium heat. Once the butter is melted and the little bubbles have gone away, place your sammie in and rub it all around to soak up all that buttery goodness.
From here, you’ll want to butter the other side of the GC and let it cook for about a minute or two. Since the fish was hot already, the cheese melted pretty quickly, so you’ll basically just want to fry the sandwich until it gets all crusty and golden on each side.
When you see that, flip it and do the same for the other side! It took me about a 2.5 minutes on each side before I took it out and sliced it.
