Can’t go wrong here with this lightly pan-fried fish sandwich. Walleye and tilapia are great choices, and buying it as fresh as possible will make it even better. A simple egg wash helps the flour stick nicely to the fish and will give it the right amount of crispiness while keeping it out of greasy territory. You’ll know it’s done when it turns golden on the outside, and white and flaky on the inside. Serve in a hoagie bun with Tangy Tartar Sauce. It's easy to make and oh so good!

Ingredients1¼ lb. fresh walleye or tilapia½ cup flour1 egg4 hamburger or hoagie buns Salt and pepper Tangy Tartar Sauce Ingredients1 Tbsp. light mayonnaise1 Tbsp. non-fat plain Greek yogurt 1 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
