Looking for a crunchy fish sandwich that delivers on flavor? Then my Crispy “Ritz” Fried Fish Sandwich recipe is what you crave!

Crispy "Ritz" Fried Fish Sandwich

This sandwich recipe was sparked from wanting a sandwich but with a crispier crust. So I added Ritz crackers with Panko breadcrumbs and came up with this Crispy “Ritz” Fried Fish Sandwich masterpiece.

For the buns I went pretzel-style. Pretzel buns are doughy, chewy, and soft and taste just like those over-sized pretzels you get when you go to the carnival or an amusement park. They are perfect for any type of sandwich. A quick toasting in the oven and they are ready to go.

Once you coat the fish and shake off the excess, the fish can be fried the perfect golden brown. I love the buttery and rich flavors from the Ritz cracker and adding that crust to a white fish gives this fish sandwich an upgrade.

I prefer to make my own tarter sauce and after you start making your own at home, you’ll never go back to the store bought kind. A few simple ingredients (mayo, dill relish, lemon juice, black pepper, paprika, Creole seasoning and garlic powder) become the creamy layer this sandwich will need.

If you’re looking for a not-so-fast food fish sandwich this Crispy Fried Fish Sandwich will be there waiting for your taste buds.

    • Thank you Melinda! I was eating Ritz one day and thought it would be a good combination for a crispy crust and it worked out great. Thanks again!
