Give Me That Fish (Woo)

Posted by on March 29 2010 in Fish

Although I don’t eat it often, I love fast food. Nachos Bell Grande? McNuggs? I’m there. And you know what I love more than food? Fast food jingles.

So when a particular jingle is catchy, annoying, creepy, and lasts for more than a year…I’m bound to drunkenly force someone to drive me to McDonald’s and get said sandwich.

Even drunk, I was terrified of the Filet-O-Fish. I’m really particular about my fish, and there was nothing particular about this sandwich. Some people told me they weren’t bad, but the thought of eating fried fish from a fast food restaurant made me dry heave. But I just loved the song so much I had to order it.

After a self pep talk (and some drunk photographing, see below) I took a bite.

IT WAS DELICIOUS.

It wasn’t the mushy fish parts I was expecting. The fish was SO crispy, a nice contrast to the soft bun. And…it was ACTUALLY a filet. No fish parts formed into a patty. A real fish filet. And then when I thought it couldn’t get any better, there was cheese and tartar sauce. This sandwich was gone in 5 seconds.

If you’ve never had one of these before, don’t do it. You’ll start craving them like crack.

    wow. im impressed that you found such pleasure in a fried fish sandwich from mcdonalds. now that we’ve identified that its not a crab-cake-like mixture, but a filet, have we come any closer to knowing exactly what type of fish it is?

    First, let me say that I enjoy McD’s Filet-O-Fish. I think the only reason I don’t order it more often is that, although tasty, it is not very filling – so I order it when I want something light to eat. If I have a buy one/get one free coupon and am hungry I will opt for a double order of the filet – then I’m a happy man! By the way, I understand it is pollock.

    This weekend I had the chance to try Wendy’s Fish Fillet Sandwich and was very impressed. This one is a bit thicker than McD’s and had a nice, clean taste as well. They advertise that theirs is cod, with panko bread crumbs, giving it a little more crispness than the Filet-O-Fish. You can order it with or without cheese (I chose cheese – of course!). This is one of the few times cheese works with fish/seafood.

    I suppose most white, flakey types of fish would work well in these sandwiches. I give a hearty thumbs-up to both offerings!

    in South Carolina, you can now order a McD’s double-fish-filet sandwich (mine w/extra tarter sauce)… yummmmmm.

    As a side note, I think there was something on the filet-o-fish box about McDonalds supporting sustainable fishing. Or I hallucinated that. Never know.

    I adore filet-o-fish sandwiches. The cheese is good, the tarter sauce sweet but tangy, the fish is not fishy (don’t know what you’re talkin’ about, Wendy’s ad – it’s certainly not McD.) and the bun… the bun is the bomb! Sure, the cheese and tarter sauce are all hanging off one side of the sandwich, but still, it’s a party in my mouth!
