This Fried Fish Po’Boy Sandwich Recipe is made with crispy fried fish of your choice, a zesty and spicy sandwich spread, lettuce, tomato, and pickle!


  • 6 Fish Fillets
  • 4 whole eggs
  • c. water
  • 2 c. seasoned fish breading (your choice)
  • 1 French Bread loaf
  • 6 tomato slices
  • ¼ c. dill pickle slices
  • Shredded lettuce
  • ½ c. tartar sauce
  • ½ c. mayo
  • 2 tsp. Lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. Dill
  • ¾ tsp. Dried chives
  • ½ tbsp. hot sauce
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. In a large shallow bowl, combine the eggs and water and whisk together until combined. In a separate shallow bowl, add the seasoned breading for the fish. In a large shallow pan, fill halfway with vegetable oil and turn heat to medium high, close to high heat.
  2. Dip the fish fillets in the egg wash on both sides, and dredge in the fish coating on both sides until well coated. Shake off excess and place in the oil once the oil is ready for frying. Cook on both sides for about 3-5 minutes, remove from oil, and place on the cooling rack. Continue the process until all fish is cooked.
  3. In a small bowl, add the tartar sauce, mayo, lemon juice, dill, chives, and hot sauce and mix. Set aside.
  4. Slice the French Bread loaf in half and remove some of the breading inside the loaf on the top half. Don’t leave completely hollow. Spread the sandwich spread on the top part of the loaf. On the other half of the bread, layer with the fish with two pieces of fried fish in each bite; place tomato slices on top, the pickle slices, and finally the shredded lettuce. Place the top part of the French bread loaf on top of the layered half. Cut into 3-4 sections and serve.
